Pavements and paths

Mastic asphalt on footpaths

Mastic asphalt is the ideal construction material for footpaths because the high level of evenness guarantees an excellent grip. Due to the surface having only a few joints (in comparison with paved surfaces for example) the maintenance costs are relatively low. In winter snow clearing is facilitated significantly. Mastic asphalt footpaths can be walked on directly after production.

 

Cycle paths

Cycle paths made of mastic asphalt provide surfaces that are excellent to ride on. They can be designed in different colours to make them stand out visually from other traffic areas.

 

Open space design

Mastic asphalt can be used to design open spaces. Besides offering colour alternatives the appearance of mastic asphalt can be enhanced by means of imprinting techniques. Compared with classic paving methods the imprinted mastic asphalt surface substantially reduces noise when driven over.

 

Parking decks

Surfaces of parking decks that are waterproofed with mastic asphalt boast an extremely long life and require minimum maintenance. Mastic asphalt surfaces are resistant to shearing stress from vehicle traffic and are not influenced by alternating freeze/thaw conditions or constant exposure to moisture.

 

Underground garages

Used in underground garages mastic asphalt provides a surface that is impermeable to liquids and protects structural concrete elements against road salt. Fuel and oil spills will hardly impair the performance of mastic asphalt surfaces in underground garages. Should repair measures become necessary, the areas can be made fit for use again very quickly.

 

Mastic asphalt for low-noise road surfaces

Mastic asphalt wearing courses on roads are characterised by high resistance to deformation and a high skid resistance that meets the required standard even after many years of use. Mastic asphalt road surfaces have a long service life, they can feature excellent low-noise properties and are environmentally friendly because recyclable.

 

Railway platforms

Mastic asphalt applied to railway station platforms provides a robust and durable surface. It is easy to clean and can be designed with patterns to meet different requirements (guiding strips for visually handicapped people, for example).

 

Increased traffic safety in tunnels thanks to mastic asphalt

Mastic asphalt is used in tunnels to protect the tunnel floor against penetration of moisture and road salt. On the other hand, the aggregate mix or brightened mastic asphalt surfaces can help provide greater traffic safety and reduce lighting expenditure.
