The company is going to start manufacturing and delivering polymer-modified bitumen, in accordance with the requirements of EN14023, in 2022.
Polymer-modified bitumens represent a group of road paving binders specifically designed and produced to improve the durability of bitumen pavements and increase road traffic performance and safety.
The addition of an elastomer in the production process leads to a modification of bitumen, granting benefits in terms of bitumen properties (concerning resistance to deformation, cohesion, elasticity, and ductility) at high and low temperature services as well as durability.
Alma Petroli PmB will be also based on the SBS polymer type addition and on a proprietary process technology.
Regarding that, the company presented a speech titled: "lma Petroli: bitumes, quality and innovation" at Asphaltica fair (november, 2021).
