Asphalt Additive Technology

Recycled cellulose fiber additives make asphalt more durable.

Stone Mastic Asphalt is an excellent surface material for roads with heavy traffic. Adding sustainable cellulose fiber into Stone Mastic Asphalt (SMA) results in better road surface performance. The cellulose additive increases the absorptive capacity of bitumen and makes the road more durable. This results in better asphalt quality and road performance, and ultimately better traffic safety. Makron has the technology to manufacture sustainable cellulose fiber from recycled raw material.

The stages of recycled cellulose fiber asphalt additive manufacturing

Excess pulp, paper and cardboard materials are collected from various sources, for example from print houses, cardboard manufacturers and households. The recycled cardboard or paper is transported to a cellulose fiber additive manufacturing plant. Makron Fibretec production line takes care of the whole cellulose fiber additive manufacturing process, from receiving the raw material, to crushing it and processing the material at different stages, to producing a finished and packed product in either pellet or in loose form. Asphalt manufacturers then mix the cellulose fiber additive into asphalt.

Benefits

Longer maintenance cycles

Adding sustainable cellulose fiber into Stone Mastic Asphalt (SMA) makes roads more durable. This leads to a longer maintenance cycle for better cost efficiency.

Better traffic safety

Higher quality and more durable asphalt results in better road performance and ultimately in better traffic safety.

Features

Less deformation and fewer fractures

Adding cellulose fiber into SMA results in better asphalt quality.

Wear resistant asphalt

Cellulose fiber additives increase the wear resistance of bitumen.
