Gilsonite in Asphalt Binder – Asphalt Modifier

Gilsonite Sealer

Among the components defining natural bitumen, there are Asphaltenes which can be found within the chemical structure. Since the route of Gilsonite is from Crude Oil, it is solvable in any oil matters which are tested by Solubility in TCE & CS2.

Gilsonite HMA Binder and Gilsonite HMA Modifier can be added into the hot mix or at the Asphalt manufacturing facility into the asphalt material and it can improve the asphalt on 3 levels: Base Course, Binding Course, and Wearing Course

Advantages of Applying Gilsonite into Asphalt Binder:

  • Applying Gilsonite in Asphalt binder increases the bonding inside the asphalt.
  • It can decrease the thickness while preserving the specifications of the asphalt.
  • Gilsonite HMA Binder increases asphalt life.
  • Gilsonite HMA Modifier can be used to make Gilsonite Superpave Modifier suitable for Pavement repairs.
  • Gilsonite HMA Binder can be mixed with SBS polymers to obtain a more economical combined grades.
