Superior Performance Polymer Modified Asphalt
Performance asphalts are made to resist regular wear and tear that cause cracking and deformation. In fact, many of our modified asphalts last up to 10 years longer.
We’ve developed a wide range of polymer-modified specialty products to better serve the variety of needs and uses of pavement for our customers. The primary benefits include resistance to rutting, less thermal cracking, and overall improved durability in the face of traffic and other environmental wear and tear. Whether it’s a need for jet fuel resistant pavement or asphalt to resist the stresses of reflective cracking at pavement joints, we have the supply available to meet your needs.
