StellarFlex FR® Specialty Mix at Lester B. Pearson International Airport
HIGH PERFORMANCE FUEL-RESISTANT ASPHALT MIX
For the first time, our specialty mix StellarFlex FR® was placed at Canada’s largest and busiest airport: the Lester B. Pearson International airport in Toronto, Ontario!
StellarFlex FR® is a mix designed in accordance with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) P-404 specification. This mix is designed to resist the damaging effects of jet fuel while granting increased crack resistance to the airfield pavement, a perfect combination for airport runways and taxiways as well as fuelling stations and fuel storage areas.
The asphalt binder used in this project is uniquely engineered with speciality polymers and additives to to counteract the damages caused by environmental conditions, heavy aircraft traffic, and potential fuel damage. StellarFlex FR® has a higher than normal binder content in order to provide greater durability under heavy loading. The high-quality aggregate used in the mix has a tailored gradation to provide superior rut and fatigue resistance.
