Multiple highways crossing over

Roads and highways  

The building and construction industry is trying to balance a number of trends, including: higher performance; increased durability; improved safety; better aesthetics; reduced maintenance; greater energy efficiency; reduced material use and waste; and lower costs.

To meet this challenge, we have developed thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) and modifiers to support the manufacture of road construction essentials, such as bitumen (asphalt) and expansion joints.

Applications and benefits

Santoprene™ TPVs provide outstanding toughness and longevity for expansion joints in bridges and parking decks.

  • Resilient and long-lasting seals
  • Precise fit and design flexibility

Recommended products

Polybilt™ bitumen modifiers improve road surface performance:

  • Broaden the working temperature range of road surfaces
  • Improve road mechanical properties, including rutting resistance
  • Enhance bitumen performance and handle increasing traffic loads
  • Reduce pavement thickness
  • Increase pavement durability
