Warm mix additives improve compaction and workability of the asphalt mix by reducing the internal friction in the bitumen and between aggregate and bitumen. Lower production temperature also reduces bitumen smoke and odor at the plant and on the worksite.
- ArOptimalUnlike competing additives, ArOptimal combines compaction aid and adhesion promotion in one. By creating stronger adhesion of the bitumen to aggregate, ArOtimal safeguards against destructive pavement forces such as traffic loading, water intrusion and oxidation at lower production temperatures. The result is fewer potholes and reduced rutting, ensuring safer, smoother and longer-lasting roads for years to come.
- Anova® 1503The Anova® 1503 warm mix additive is a non-hazardous, bio-based product used to reduce production temperatures of asphalt mix and achieve improved workability, compaction and aggregate/bitumen adhesion.
- AD-Here LOF 65-00 EUIn wet and cold climates, AD-Here LOF 65-00 EU is used for extending pavement life by protecting from moisture damage and resultant pavement distresses such as raveling, pothole development and rutting. In addition to minimize smoke and odor to promote better plant personnel and paving crew comfort, it also enables easier hand-work in paving applications. AD-Here LOF 65-00 EU is also used as a warm mix additive in production with foamed bitumen.
