A visit to PEAB in early 2013 revealed serious issues with stripping of the binder caused by the characteristics of their hard granites – initially proposed for making the Macfix® cold asphalt. Following some adjustments and some more Lab time, the issues were resolved which on October 10th 2013 led to the first successful production at a coating plant in Västerås (100km West of Stockholm). During the following month or so, two hundred tonnes has been produced and is being successfully trialled with various clients. The ‘winter grade’ product is designed to be workable down to -10°C.
