Synthetic pigmentable binder
What is the product?
Synthetic pigmentable binders are non-bituminous binders to which pigments can be added, making it possible for the asphalt to be applied in different colours.
Asphalt pavement with synthetic pigmentable binder has multiple applications, including:
- safety (e.g. better visibility at intersections)
- aesthetic aspect
- integration of the asphalt colour into the surroundings
- lower road surface temperature thanks to lighter colour (greater reflection of sunlight)
- decreased power consumption in tunnels, for example, due to the brighter colour of the asphalt
What does Copro do?
