SOLVING PROBLEMS, FILLING NEEDS.

Asphalt

BR2 products can be used to extend and modify asphalt products in a way that makes environmental and economic sense. Our modified pavement binders allow for greater use of recycled pavement while reducing overall lane mile costs. And, we are constantly developing new compounds for use in mastics and other asphalt-based products.

Other benefits include:

  • Abundant supply of raw materials
  • Secures Bio Preferred Status
  • Qualifies For LEEDs credits
  • Reduces petroleum dependence
  • Lowers costs
  • Increases ability to use reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP)
