Road Science for the Asphalt Paving Industry
Quality roads are important to every economy. They are key to any dependable transportation infrastructure which must facilitate the efficient and cost-effective flow of goods and services between manufacturers and consumers. Today, asphalt is the glue or binder that holds together more than 90% of roads and highways across the US and Europe. It is a colloidal dispersion of hydrocarbons derived from the distillation of crude oil, and is the preferred type of pavement used today due to its versatility, flexibility, durability, ride comfort and ease of recyclability. In an emulsified form, asphalt is also used in many pavement maintenance and recycling applications.
ArrMaz’s Road Science division is a technology leader in the asphalt industry worldwide. Our innovative offerings span the entire value chain; from formulating and producing key chemical components for asphalt refineries, terminals, emulsion plants and hot mix asphalt (HMA) plants, to providing field engineering support of pavement applications. We develop innovative solutions for the asphalt paving industry in our world-class American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) accredited laboratory.
Road Science’s portfolio of products offers proven, effective solutions to meet today’s infrastructure challenges with a focus on four key product areas:
- Chemical Technology – Asphalt additives and emulsifiers
- Pavement Preservation & Maintenance Technology – Bonded pavements, micro-surfacing and chip seal
- Asphalt Pavement Recycling Technology – Hot and cold recycling solutions
- Binder Technology – Strain tolerant pavement layers and crack relief interlayers
Road Science is a leader in chemical and binder technology as well as preventative maintenance and recycling applications. Our asphalt additives and emulsifiers make pavements last longer and allow for easier lay-down and construction, improving life cycle cost and stretching agency dollars. Our innovative products and application systems for strain tolerant pavement layers and thin bonded pavements cost-effectively extend the life of roads, and better protects them from cracking and further deterioration compared to alternative techniques.
Road Science’s expertise also extends to pavement recycling, and the advancement of environmental stewardship and sustainability in the industry. We provide rejuvenator and emulsifier chemistry designed to make recycling applications easier, more efficient and longer lasting. We also offer construction application systems for recycling that improve roadway durability and reduce motorist user delay during construction.
Road Science leads the industry in delivering responsive, comprehensive and dependable laboratory and field customer support, focused on helping our customers succeed.
