That means a good asphalt preservation program can increase the life of your pavements exponentially, have a positive impact on the environment by reducing the demand on finite petroleum resources, and
Our solution has been around for millions of years...
Gilsonite – a non-toxic, naturally occurring, 99.85% pure mineral asphalt ore – is used in the GSB-78 and GSB-88 Sealer Binder products. Naturally an environmentally friendly choice, GSB treatment mixes are based on Gilsonite. Pavements preserved with GSB have a high sustainabilty. Here’s why. Gilsonite does not need to be re ned. It is fully compatible with bitumen, completely retaining all chemicals vital to long-term performance. As a sealer, binder, and rejuvenator, GSB lls micro-voids and toughens the surface to better withstand traf c and the aging process. In some cases GSB will halt, and reverse the effects of aging and degradation from water penetration, oxidation, and UV radiation. GSB lowers viscosity by over 30%, increases ductility by 30%, and increases Marshall Stability by almost 40% (strength of binder) after just ve years!
