Applications

Hot mix asphalt (HMA) and Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA) are highly versatile, sustainable technologies with application temperatures above 100°C. They deliver value and performance based solutions across a broad spectrum of applications and uses. The Cold and Semi-Warm applications encompass a wide range of paving technologies that all have application temperatures below 100˚C. Tack and bond coats, surface dressing and foam mixes are some examples of techniques within the Cold and Semi-warm application area.

Hot & Warm Mix Applications

Nynas provides a wide range of paving-grade bitumen as well as modified and specialist binders for Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) and Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA) applications. HMA and WMA are highly versatile construction materials. They deliver value and performance based solutions across a broad spectrum of applications and uses.

Hot and Warm Mix Asphalt’s proven credentials of performance, durability and versatility provide compelling reasons to confirm the material’s position as a more than viable solution when it comes to the sustainable development of transport infrastructure.

Cold & Semi Warm Applications

Nynas provides a wide range of bitumen solutions for application temperatures below 100°C that includes bitumen for tack and bond coats, surface dressing, slurry/microsurfacing, cold mixes, foam mixes and semi-warm mixes.

Efforts to develop asphalts which require reduced levels of natural resources and consume less energy in production are achieving results, with the industry under pressure to cut both the use of fossil fuels and levels of CO² produced. Reducing the need for elevated temperatures during asphalt production is where the next significant reduction in energy is likely to be achieved. To this end the emerging field of Warm, Half (or Semi) Warm and Cold Mix Asphalt technologies is broadening an already comprehensive toolbox of options available to the industry.
