POLYMER MODIFIED BITUMEN
Polymer Modified Bitumen

Hincol Polymer Modified Bitumen is designed to maximise resistance to permanent deformation and reduce fatigue of asphalt mixtures that are used in the most demanding locations.  

The careful selection of additives greatly enhances binder performance, improving elasticity, reducing temperature susceptibility and improving adhesion. Pavements based on Hincol Modified Bitumen have been shown to have a longer life with a better resistance to:

  • rutting
  • cracking
  • stripping
  • ageing
  • thermal cracking

The careful selection of additives greatly enhances binder performance, improving elasticity, reducing temperature susceptibility and improving adhesion. Our product range is particularly suited to heavy traffic locations such as highways, main roads, airfields, roundabouts and bus lanes. Typically we’ve developed products for a combination of the following needs:

  • Superior Elastic Modulus of Hincol PMB helps control deformation under high pavement temperature and heavy loading conditions.
  • Increases the fatigue life of pavement under repeated heavy loading conditions.
  • Helps in reduction of maintenance cost and is more cost effective on a life cycle cost basis.
  • for use in thin surfacing and stone mastic asphalt (SMA) mixes;
  • for use in drainage (porous) asphalt applications;
  • for asphalt mixtures designed for high resistance to permanent deformation and high flexibility
