Leading supplier and manufacturer of construction and building materials, Aggregate Industries, has launched SuperCurve® – a high performance 10mm polymer modified asphalt designed and engineered to provide an enhanced surface course for higher stressed areas such as roundabouts and junctions.
Designed to meet the needs of the local authority’s road renewal programme, as well as providing a hard-wearing solution for new networks, SuperCurve is a high PBM bitumen with dense in-situ void properties of <5%, capable of withstanding the torsional forces seen on high-stress areas of UK roads.
Chris Hudson, Director of Asphalt for Aggregate Industries, comments:
“With the number of vehicles on our roads increasing and the public becoming more sensitive to road work disruptions, we have designed a product which is not only highly workable and easy to lay but will outperform any other product of its kind on the market.
“With impressive SCRIM test results to prevent skidding on wet roads, SuperCurve is proving to be the go-to product for civil engineers and contractors looking to improve the performance of our roads.”
The recommended minimum laying thickness for SuperCurve is 35-50mm according to the aggregate size, and the selection of a polymer modified binder provides additional benefits such as reduced low temperature susceptibility and improved adhesive qualities in the presence of water.
