High-performance, environmentally responsible asphalt solutions
Commonly used for road surfaces, base courses, parking lots, airfields and runways, asphalt consists of high-quality aggregates mixed with a bitumen binder.
Building on decades of experience, Holcim has the asphalt expertise to successfully undertake the most demanding projects and diverse applications. Our ongoing commitment to R&D guarantees high levels of performance, durability and sustainability in addition to unique characteristics such as ensuring superior performance in different climates. Holcim also produces asphalt with noise-reducing properties for residential areas, as well as asphalt with surface drainage layers and open graded sub-base layers.
Using recycled aggregates to enhance sustainable building performance
To protect the environment and limit our carbon footprint, Holcim has developed a range of best practices and tools:
- Maximizing recycled asphalt use
- Expanding cold and warm asphalt technologies
- Optimizing bitumen consumption
- Enhancing rideability with our polymer modified bitumen
Asphalt is in fact one of the most recycled materials. Recycled asphalt delivers excellent mechanical properties while reducing the need for natural aggregates. Instead, it contains high levels of recycled raw materials such as old road surfaces, sand, crushed glass and recovered waste from other industries.
