In 2017, Firtec, a company belonging to the Sorigué Group, executed works spanning an area of approximately 27,000 m2 and using pigmented mixtures that employ synthetic binders that REPSOL markets under the Recofal brand.
FIRTEC, under the brand "FIRCOLOR," has developed mixtures which, with the use of Recofal S50 synthetic binder, makes it possible to manufacture mixtures that can be adapted to the surrounding area in special zones where color is an essential requirement. Pavements can be tinted with a wide range of colors or be left devoid of pigment, yielding a mixture color similar to that of the aggregate used and obtaining natural tones that blend with the surrounding area.
In addition to being easily tinted with pigments, other advantages of these binders include their uniformity for any type of mixture regardless of their particle size and their good resistance to aging and oxidation.
REPSOL markets pigmentable synthetic binders that can be applied in places such as bicycle lanes, sport tracks, and pavements in parks and gardens. Proof of this are the different works executed in such a unique place as Paseo de Gracia in Barcelona.
The different works executed include the following:
