PRODUCTS

PR PLAST S - ANTI RUTTING ADDITIVE

PRESENTATION

 PR PLAST S is a polymer based additive and it is treated with an anti


anti--
shrinkage agent
 It comes in the form of 3 mm granules
granules..
 It is especially developed to resist the rutting of hot mix asphalt

PRINCIPLE

HARDCORE EFFECT

BLOCKING EFFECT

BITUMEN EFFECT

PR PLAST S will modify the physical characteristics of the mix. It works


as reinforcement agent between the aggregates in the binder

PR PLAST S- ANTI RUTTING ADDITIVE

PRODUCTS

BINDER EFFECT
The product gives the effect of
- Lowering in the penetrability
- Rise the ring and ball temperature
- Lowering in the susceptibility

ARMATURAGE EFFECT
It will create bonding inside the granulometric skeleton

HARDCORE EFFECT
It is made by the particles temporatly softened during the process
which are to be thermaly moulded during compaction in order to fill
the voids of the granulometric skeleton
PR PLAST S- ANTI RUTTING ADDITIVE

PRODUCTS

ADVANTAGES

1. Greatly improves the mixed asphalts resistance to rutting,


even at high temperature and high traffic
2. Increases Marshall stability up to 25%
3. It increases the stripping value
4. Flexible to use and to produce HMA
5. Easy to stock and to mix in right proportions
6. No need for modified bitumen plant and/or storage tank

PR FLEX 20 – MODIFIED BITUMEN IN GRANULATES

PRODUCTS

PRESENTATION

 Composed of 30% bitumen and 70% of polymers

 PR FLEX 20 increases the cohesion and flexibility of the


asphalt in low temperatures.

 Thin and discontinuous wearing course


PR FLEX 20 – MODIFIED BITUMEN IN GRANULATES

PRODUCTS

PRINCIPLE

- SBS modified bitumen needs a long digestion time (swelling)


 With PR FLEX 20: SBS is industrially pre-digested and grafted
with the polymers composing.
- During the mixing : high shear rate which release SBS.
 Short mixing time
