detailed information

Description    
BORNIT® – coldmix asphalt is a mixture of refined gravel with a bitumen emulsion, which, thanks to its adhesive additives, increases adhesive properties. It has a granularity of 2/5 mm for the purposes of patching scabbing. The product is packed in plastic bags or plastic buckets.
 
Uses    
BORNIT® – coldmix asphalt is a road construction material for maintenance use. Thanks to the separating affects of the water contained in the emulsion, the gravel particles do not stick together during storage and the mixture remains flexible and retains its pliability for when it is to be used.
BORNIT® – cold mixture asphalt can be stored outdoors in the packaging, for example in the construction yard, without being in any way affected.

Advantages    
•    economical and cost affective, does not require any special tools or application
•    a thick layer can be applied in one working operation

Base    
It is necessary to ensure that the base is solid and free of any substances, which could reduce the product’s gripping properties, as well as being neither wet nor greasy. Standing water must be removed.

Application    
BORNIT® – coldmix asphalt can be used throughout the whole year thanks to its exceptional property of not being dependent on weather conditions. Rain, humidity and light frosts are no barrier to continuing the work. It is only necessary to interrupt work if the temperature is less than -5°C.

BORNIT® – coldmix asphalt is used on topcoats and bearing strata and on frost-proofed surfaces for light and medium traffic. The topcoat of BORNIT® – coldmix asphalt can be laid on existing reinforced carriageways as well as on newly laid bitumen layers.

During the manual repairs of small surfaces, especially when repairing scabbing and other damage on the carriageway, it is necessary to thoroughly clean the area prior to applying the mixture. Thanks to the cold mixture’s very good gripping properties, it is not necessary to prepare the perpendicular edges of the scabbing (scour) in advance.

Once laid, BORNIT® – coldmix asphalt is immediately traversable.  The surface may be sprinkled with sand in order to reduce tackiness. The subsequent consolidation of the repaired scabbing occurs during the regular traffic on the carriageway.

BORNIT® – coldmix asphalt is only used on layers up to a thickness of 5 mm. The drying process is dependent on the thickness of the layer and the surrounding conditions. It can take several weeks.

Consumption    
Approx. 20 kg / m² for a layer thickness of 1 cm

Storage    
The product’s storage period is at least 6 months. Loose material must be covered.
