Our National Technical Centre at Ettingshall near Wolverhampton has developed a range of industry leading asphalts that are helping to raise standards of durability and paving efficiency while improving sustainability and reducing environmental impact.
Our ULTILOW range of asphalts won Highways Industry Product of the Year at the 2015 Highways Magazine Excellence Awards.
They reach trafficking temperatures sooner, enabling larger sections of pavement to be laid in a single shift and road closures to be minimised. They can also deliver carbon footprint savings of up to 25% compared to hot mix equivalents.
Tarmac Ultilayer SAMI asphalt interlayer is another example of this innovation. Developed after extensive research and testing, it resists cracking of asphalt overlays in concrete based pavements.
Our experienced technical team ensure the quality and consistency of the asphalts supplied through our network of UK asphalt plants. They also offer advice and support to customers to help them benefit from the latest asphalt technology and advise on pavement designs for specific projects.
