modifying Gilsonite with paving mixtures generally achieve higher Performing grades and incorporate perfectly into the asphalt blend
without adding any other balancing materials so that as a result it becomes a highly solid material.
Because Gilsonite modified asphalts have higher stability,
therefor it reduces deformation, reduced temperature susceptibility and also increased resistance to water stripping than non modified asphalts.
Using Gilsonite to make both solvent based and emulsion pavement sealers with superior appearance and weathering properties
In fact the main task of Gilsonite in this application is to,
improve the stability of pavements and their resistance against shape changes,
which increases the ability to withstand high applied load and therefor its highly compatible under high pressure.
while There are almost more than 35 different replacements for Gilsonite, but since their ratios of cost to benefit are higher than Gilsonite, as a result Gilsonite is more beneficial
- High strength and durability
- Superior deformation performance
- Reduced pavement thickness
- Reduced temperature susceptibility
- Increased resistance to water stripping
