High modulus bitumen

High modulus bitumen is the most advisable choice when requiring greater rigidity and/or less surface thickness (reinforcement surface layers, airport surfaces, etc.), due to the fact that this type of bitumen makes it possible to obtain a module with a rigidity more than two times greater than that corresponding to a conventional mixture.

Repsol has developed a special product based on a careful selection of crudes called high modulus bitumen, which makes it possible to obtain mixtures with a rigidity module more than two times greater than that of a conventional mixture. In this manner it is possible to reduce the thickness of the surface while maintaining its structural capacity, thereby lowering costs.

Its use is mainly recommended in:
  • Base layers in new surfaces.
  • Airport surfaces.
  • Reinforcement or partial reconstruction of surfaces.
  • Anti-rut intermediate layer when using a thin wearing course layer.
