It is no surprise that most of our roads and streets are made with asphalt. Asphalt roads are more flexible to build and easier to maintain than roads using any other material. They are more cost-effective in both construction and maintenance and help reduce noise pollution. Asphalt roads are durable and are 100% recyclable. And asphalt is not just used in road surfaces: it is also a vital component of the substructure of the road, as well. And, of course, without bitumen there would be no asphalt.
The characteristics of bitumen give architects, structural engineers and planners the freedom to redesign the world we live in. Bitumen membranes are water-repellent and flexible, making them ideal for waterproofing roofs and other structural elements. A natural adhesive, they can be applied to any number of substrate materials, and their natural flexibility helps to prevent rips and tears even with significant structural movement.
