Knowledge

We work with highly regarded academics across the globe and have access to, and commission, research at the forefront of the field.

Experience

Currently active in 30+ countries across the world, we are known for producing the best sustainable polymers on the market.

Quality

Since the implementation around 2 years ago, improvement in performance and durability has been recorded. SteelPhalt see the use of MacRebur moving forward as an important part of our global growth project in the years to come. MacRebur helps us to further increase our sustainability credentials which is a big part of what we are about.

Knowledge

MacRebur recycled plastic modification of bituminous binder for asphalt production resulted in a significant improvement in the fatigue life of asphalt mixtures, as well as an increase in the stiffness of modulus. It is recommended that pavement owners consider recycled plastic modification of asphalt for improved asphalt performance and more efficient pavement structures.

Dr Greg White, University of the Sunshine Coast

Experience

Five years ago my asphalt plant had a requirement to make polymer modified bitumen. MacRebur helps us tailor our needs on a job by job basis. It's as you want, when you want. MacRebur gives us that flexibility.

Products

All of our carbon data is verified in accordance with ISO 14064-3.

MR6

MR6 is manufactured from a mix of polymers and is designed to modify asphalt and reduce deformation failures or increase stiffness.

Typically dry mixed at asphalt plant, MR6 is used where traditionally polymer modified bitumen's (PMBs) are specified. This might be on motorways, heavy duty base courses or where surface courses are subject to heavily loaded traffic.

MR6 provides a direct replacement to virgin polymer, used in the production of PMB.

On average MR6 saves 11.32 kgC02e per tonne of asphalt

MR6

MR8

MR8 is manufactured from a mix of polymers and is designed to extend the binder in any asphalt mix.

The product is used where unmodified binder (liquid asphalt) is normally specified, for instance all base, binder and surface course asphalt material on standard traffic roads, footways, etc.

MR8 is used as a direct replacement for neat binder used in asphalt and is typically dry mixed at asphalt plant.

On average MR8 saves 4.65 kgC02e per tonne of asphalt

MR8

Sustainability

  • Safe for use

    Our products are rigorously tested to ensure they are safe for both humans and the environment.

  • ISO accredited

    We provide real world accredited carbon savings. All carbon data noted is verified in accordance with ISO 14064-3.

  • Sustainable technologies

    By extending part of the Bitumen in the mix, our products reduce fossil fuel usage, leading to a reduction in carbon footprint.
