SUPERPLAST is a special compound made of selected polymers that comes in semi-soft and flexible granules.

General description:

SUPERPLAST is a special compound made of selected polymers that comes in semi-soft and flexible granules. 

SUPERPLAST is used to manufacture all types of bituminous mixes whenever it is necessary to modify the bitumen to improve its characteristics and to increase road surface mechanical resistance. 

SUPERPLAST can be added directly into the plant mixer with no need to use modified bitumen storage tanks. 

The product can be added using a batching system or manually through the mixer opening.

To guarantee the mechanical properties given by SUPERPLAST to the mix it is mandatory that the mixture at the mix plant is ≥ 180 °C, as the melting point recalls.

 

Advantage:

  • High mechanical properties.
  • Indirect Tensile Strength over a wider range of temperatures;
  • Higher resistance to rutting and deformation at elevated pavement temperatures.
  • Increased resistance to fatigue cracking and reflective cracking.
  • Durable in extreme climatic conditions especially in high temperature environment.
  • Reduce significantly moisture sensibility and aggregate stripping by providing better adhesion to aggregates.

 

Dosage:

The dosage of SUPERPLAST may vary from 4% to 6% of bitumen weight depending on specifications or the modification to be made.
