Aggregate Industries - Asphalt

SuperFlex® Base and Binder
Award winning SuperFlex asphalt is used as a base or binder course layer and combines the properties of high fatigue resistance with excellent deformation resistance. It is suited for use in a wide variety of applications and particularly where cracking is a problem. SuperFlex has excellent crack resisting properties meaning it is the ideal material when overlaying concrete. It excels in both deformation resistance and fatigue life over conventional mixtures and allows early and temporary trafficking where site restrictions prevent the application of a surface course prior to the removal of traffic management. Superflex is impermeable, keeping out the unwanted action of trapped water and is high fatigue resulting in longevity and therefore reduced costs.

Our bespoke solution for large car parks which has been designed and engineered to provide a tough, hard wearing, low maintenance surface which is perfect for supermarket, retail, transport, office and leisure centre facilities. SuperParking Assured is a system that offers the client with a 10 year performance guarantee. As SuperParking is laid thinner than traditional materials it offers reduced material square meterage costs. The mix design of SuperParking is optimised to resist damaging effects, such as scuffing & indentation, commonly seen at high frequency use car parks. It is aesthetically pleasing with an aggregate grading that provides a smooth, consistent surface finish and it is workable, allowing material to be hand laid where necessary with no deleterious effects.

SuperColour® Ultra
A range of distinctly coloured asphalts that use a translucent penetration grade, resinous hydrocarbon binder. The special binder is readily pigmented and provides a wide range of asphalt colours. SuperColour Ultra can be mixed in red, green, yellow, blue and white. The intensity of the colour can also be varied by altering the level of pigmentation, harmonising with the surroundings. The range of colours allows clients to enhance safety through colour-coded demarcation areas. It is available using binder technology and is manufactured using plant based renewable ingredients. It is suitable for domestic and commercial schemes.

A high performance 10mm polymer modified asphalt designed and engineered to provide an enhanced surface course for higher stressed areas. SuperCurve can offer excellent SCRIM properties with good low temperature cracking resistance and high elastic recovery. It has good deformation resistance at higher temperatures.

SuperColour® Exposed
A durable, coloured asphalt, SuperColour Exposed is a product that gains its colour by exposing the natural colour of the coursing aggregates used in the mix. The High Velocity Impact Method (HVIM) shot-blasting process we use allows us to remove the surface bitumen left 4-6 weeks after application, in order to sufficiently expose the colour of the aggregates. SuperColour Exposed is aesthetically pleasing and the surface can be refreshed to rejuvenate the natural colour. Various bitumen grades can be used to satisfy a range of traffic scenarios whilst it is laid using the same method as regular asphalts SuperColour Exposed does not require the expensive cleaning process needed for other conventional, pigmented materials and is available in gold, red, green and gravel colours.

A range of coloured asphalt products based around BS/EN close, dense and medium graded standard mixtures. The product can be used in any application particularly where colour differentiation is deemed an important aspect such as private drives, cycleways and pedestrian areas. SuperColour Exposed is available in a range of colour saturation grades - 'Advanced' grades contain higher concentrations of pigment for stronger colour saturation; 'Extra' grades use a complementary coloured aggregate in the mixture for longer lasting colour effect. It is a cost effective, colour demarcation asphalt.

SuperBase is a specifically engineered asphaltic concrete 14mm dense binder course mixture, which has been designed to fill the gap within the range of binder course materials, described in UK asphalt standards. SuperBase is suitable for use in either low or high density traffic situations and is equivalent in stiffness modulus to a conventional HDM 50 or HMB 35 for Superbase grades 50 or 35 respectively. It has been developed to provide the function of a durable and impermeable supporting layer below modern thin surfacings.
