Benefits of Mastic Asphalt
The benefits of using mastic asphalt include:
Mastic asphalt is the premier bituminous waterproofing and surfacing product available. Unlike a traditional tarmacadam surface, which could last 5-10 years, mastic asphalt has the ability to last upto 60 years. The polymers used in mastic asphalt improve elasticity in both hot and cold weather conditions, which help to maintain its structural integrity and durability.
Mastic asphalt is unaffected by water and provides a proven seamless waterproofing and tanking material that is second to none.
Because it outlasts all other bituminous materials mastic asphalt doesn't need replacing as often, thus delaying on its replacement for many years.
Health & Safety
Unlike brick and block paving, mastic asphalt is laid in a continuous film without the need for joints, which means that accidents such as slips, trips and falls are reduced. Mastic asphalt provides a safe non-slip surface for pedestrians and non-skid carriageway for vehicles.
Maintains its Appearance
Mastic asphalt can also be made fuel and acid resistant and can be cleaned with pressure water jets without detriment to the surface, unlike other bituminous surfacing materials, which can be very susceptible to water damage.
Mastic asphalt is a potentially 100% recyclable product and is classified as non-toxic.
Mastic asphalt in its molten state can be moulded to any irregular shape and be laid around any obstruction in-situ.
Faster Project Completion
Mastic asphalt can be laid quickly over large areas when supplied by hot charge deliveries. (The Tyne Tunnel 12000 m2 was completed over three weekend closures). Smaller contracts can be supplied in block form for remelting the required quantity on-site, whilst larger contracts can be supplied via a fleet of heated and stirred hot charge transporters.
Domestic and Commercial Flooring
As well as a proven damp-proof membrane, mastic asphalt applied to domestic floors provides the ideal base for carpet, vinyl or other types of smooth flooring. Its speed of application and fast cooling properties allow carpets and furnishings to be replaced within hours. Many European countries are renovating their old blocks of flats and are installing sound proofing to their floors overlaid with a new mastic asphalt flooring layer.
There are no moisture considerations, curing or drying out times with mastic asphalt floors.
Designing with Colour
To the architect or project manager mastic asphalt offers limitless scope for design opportunities. It can be specified in almost any colour, texture and design and is an ideal choice where general aesthetics have to be combined with long-lasting waterproofing or paving.
