FAQ

How much plastic do you use in the roads?

For every 10 tonnes of asphalt made with our additives included, we use up the equivelent of 71,432 plastic bottles or 435,592 One time use plastic bags, 0r 32,399 used nappys.  10 tonnes of asphalt would approximately surface 90 square Metres.

We have piles of plastics we want to get rid of. Will you take them?

We are not currently taking in any waste materials as we have our source of waste plastics all in order, but email us, and we will hold your details on file as we develop new products all of the time and may be looking for these plastics in the future.

Do you provide quotes for private drives?

We sell our products to your local asphalt manufacturer, and to use/purchase them you simply need to ask a local contractor to quote for your job, and ask for our products from where they buy their asphalt.  If you let us know where the job is, we can investigate as to who will be able to make your required asphalt and recommend a good contractor who can come and give you a quote.

Can your products be used in freezing climates?

We have tested our products in 65 degree C heat, and down to -25 Degree’s and asphalt with our products in all perform better than asphalt with straight run bitumen.

If you imagine taking a cup of bitumen, and a cup of plastics and placing them outside in the weather.

If you were to hit the bitumen in the freezing cold with a hammer, the bitumen would shatter like glass.  The plastic would spring back.

If you were to hit the bitumen in very hot conditions with a hammer, the bitumen would melt like a glue.  The plastic would again spring back.

Are there any problems with micro plastics washing away from the roads into our rivers and oceans?

Our products are all derived from 100% waste plastics.  These plastics are pelletised and added to an asphalt or bitumen mix and replace part of that bitumen before being heated to around 160 – 180 degrees C.  Our products fully melt into the remaining bitumen and homogenise in to form part of that bitumen.   Plastics are made from hydrocarbons, as is bitumen.  It’s important that our plastics all fully homogenise into the mix.  There are therefore no plastics present in the end asphalt – just a polymer modified bitumen.  So no micro-plastics are in the end asphalt mix, and no leaching of any plastics can occur.

We recover that binder at the end of the lifetime of that road and it can be used again and again – so our roads are fully recyclable.  When we recover the binder, it shows that there is an increase in bitumen because the plastics become part of that bitumen.

By adding in plastics into bitumen, we are, in fact, reducing the leaching of any bitumen into our water course.

Essentially, we are turning that bitumen, which is designed to stick the aggregates (stone) together from children’s glue, to superglue…
