As an asphalt binder modifier, the unique properties of Gilsonite® uintaite make a road that is less susceptible to high-temperature and deformation performance issues. When these modified binders are used in recycled asphalt pavements, Gilsonite® adds back what time has taken from the old asphalt, making it easier to use more of this recycled material. The Gilsonite®-modified asphalt binder will produce a stronger road that can be thinner by nearly 20 percent compared with other pavements. For more information about this application, please contact us.
As an aggregate modifier, Gilsonite® uintaite can be added directly at the hot mix plant with no additional equipment. The excellent bonding properties of Gilsonite® will produce a high-strength, high-performance pavement that also resists water stripping.
- High strength and durability
- Superior deformation performance
- Reduced pavement thickness
- Reduced temperature susceptibility
- Increased resistance to water stripping
Gilsonite® makes roads stronger to last longer.
Gilsonite® uintaite’s proven properties make high-performance solvent-based and emulsion pavement sealers dry quicker, look better and last longer. Gilsonite® is Naturally Better®. As a natural antioxidant, it allows pavement sealers to stay blacker longer. Gilsonite® uintaite’s unique molecular fractions rejuvenate the pavement being sealed. The strong bonding properties of Gilsonite® help weatherproof the sealer.
Making longer-lasting pavement helps the environment. By rejuvenating pavements with recycled asphalt instead of replacing them, there is a proven significant reduction in energy used as well as a reduction in required resources. For further information, please contact us.
