RECOFOAM®
SUSTAINABLE COLD MIX MATERIALS

 

Treated recycled materials are increasingly being used in the construction and maintenance of road pavement structures.
The Recofoam® range offers contracting authorities a simple, efficient, effective and economical pavement refurbishing technique.
The incorporation of ‘non-primary’ materials offers demonstrable environmental benefits while reducing the use of non-renewable raw materials and the storage of inert materials.
The Recofoam® range includes two grades: Storage and Heavy Duty, both are formulated to meet the requirements of the Specification for Highway Works, Clause 948, Classes B2 and B4 respectively.

- Incorporating up to 85% recyled materials

 

HIGH QUALITY PAVEMENTS

 

FOAM BITUMEN TECHNOLOGY
TARGETED EFFECTIVENESS
The basic principle of Recofoam® is to expand bitumen via contact with small amounts of water under carefully controlled conditions; then mix the foamed bitumen with cold moist aggregate.
The process is based on surface tension: when the bitumen foam collapses the binder grips the fine particles, which in turn forms a strong mortar that encapsulates the coarser particles.
Foamed bitumen provides a uniquely strong adhesive binder system that enables the use of a wider range of new and recycled aggregates. Recofoam® is often as strong, after curing as conventional asphalt alternatives whilst being more rapid curing than emulsion bound materials.

In the case of Recofoam® HD, a hydraulic binder is also included to ensure improved cohesion and immediate strength during the curing process.
Recofoam® is also proven to stablise and encapsulate asphalt waste containing tar preventing any contamination leaching into the surrounding environment.

 

PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT

The Recofoam® range helps protect the environment, not only by using recycled materials but also through its cold production process.
