Bitucolor

Introduction

Asphalt also can be delivered in different colors, such as red, green, blue, white and yellow. Colored asphalt is a product consistent of clear bitumen, color pigment and mineral aggregate. By optimal selection of the applied materials is it possible to produce a colored coating for use on footpaths and bicycle paths, but also for heavy-duty industrial pavements and speed bumps.  

Clear binders colored asphalt can be produced to add enough pigment to current (black) asphalt. A disadvantage of this is that a large amount of pigment has to be used to obtain a (darker) colored tint.  

The color of the bitumen however plays an important role for the end product colored asphalt. With so-called clear binders can a much better color-effect been obtained, through a little amount of pigment a clear color arises.
