Introduction

Climate changes, increased traffic volumes, increasing wheel loads. All kinds of factors nowadays imposing limitations to the durability of asphalt pavements. The Sealoflex® SFB5 range of polymer modified binders has especially been designed to cope with these extreme loading cases. Sealoflex® SFB5 binders provide quality and durability without any compromise unrivalled by any kind of other asphalt binder.  

Properties Sealoflex® SFB5 is a SBS-polymer modified binder with relatively high polymer content. With the specially developed Sealoflex® processing technique the polymer is cross-linked and stabilized. Sealoflex® SFB5 binders have premium properties with respect to:

  • Temperature susceptibility
  • Elasticity and resistance to deformation
  • Ductility and resistance to fatigue
  • Ageing
  • Adhesion promotion  


Accordingly asphalt mixtures with Sealoflex® SFB5 are rut resistant, crack resistant and almost impossible to fatigue even in extreme load cases which is confirmed by results in laboratories and in practice.
Product Types

  • Sealoflex® SFB5 bitumen 
  • Sealoflex® SFB5 (PA); bitumen for use in porous wearing courses
  • Sealoflex® SFB5 (JR); bitumen for applications where increased resistance to oil and fuel is required 


Applications
  • Airport runways, taxiways and aprons
  • Port quay pavements
  • Bridge decks
  • Industrial pavements
  • Container terminals
  • Race tracks
  • Trunk roads and truck lanes
  • Porous asphalt and Stone Mastic asphalt
  • Jet fuel resistant pavements  


Benefits
  • Expect 50% to 300% increased pavement life
  • Reduce pavement layer thickness
  • Construction of pavement in asphalt, even in extreme load cases like container terminals
  • Storage stable at high polymer content – improved storage life
