Asphalt Additives and Modifiers Coats and Primers

Increase the adhesion between asphalt cements and aggregates.

McAsphalt provides the road construction industry with the highest quality asphalt additives to increase the adhesion between asphalt cements and aggregates, thereby improving pavement performance via reduced pavement rutting and moisture-induced damage. Our products can save time and money for mix producers and paving contractors and improve the overall performance of a pavement surface, extending its service life.

Warm mix asphalt (WMA) cements introduced a paving alternative to conventional binders that delivers longevity and performance while dramatically reducing emissions and fuel demands. Our innovative technologies are designed to improve mix coating, workability, compaction time availability, and the stripping resistance of asphalt mixes. WMA is a long-lasting paving solution that significantly lowers temperatures for asphalt production and application. This lower temperature leads to major reductions in fuel consumption, energy requirements, oxidation of the mix, and environmental impact, all while improving working conditions.
