Increased Durability and Resistance
HEXLINK Polymer Modified Asphalt (PMA) products provide a range of solutions to PMA challenges. From the elimination of dry sulfur additions to complete cross-linker and accelerator packages. HEXPOL’s family of PMA products enhance the processing and performance of a variety of SBS (Styrene-butadiene-styrene) modified paving and roofing materials.
SBS modification has long been used to improve the elastic recovery, ductility and softening point of bitumen formulas. These modifications not only enhance the handling and workability of the bitumen but also translate into improvements in product performance. This includes resistance to high-temperature wheel-track rutting and resistance to low-temperature fatigue cracking, as well as increasing service life and lowering road noise.
Available In A Variety Of Packaging And Delivery Configurations
- Pumpable cross-linker/accelerator paste dispersions
- Pumpable sulfur dispersions
- Drum or Tote Delivery
- Custom cross-linker/accelerator development
- Hydrogen Sulfide reducing formulations available
- Pelletized sulfur dispersion or blends for easy application
Polymer Modified Asphalt Cross-Linkers and Accelerators
Used primarily in higher penetration grades of asphalt, Polymer Modified Bitumen (PMA) has quickly become the standard for high-performance, high-value, cost-effective road surfacing. PMA advantages include increased durability, resistance to aging, stripping/raveling resistance and greater flexibility.
HEXLINK™ cross-linker and accelerator packages are each designed to be complete cross-linking and accelerator packages for use with most (nitrile and SBS type) PMA systems; no additional curatives or cross-linking agents are required or recommended to produce the highest quality PMA products.
HEXPOL’s cross-linker pastes and sulfur dispersions keep operators out of harm’s way and allow for metered and reproducible incorporation of the key ingredients in your bitumen formulation. This keeps your operators from handling powdered or molten sulfur and the hazards associated with such handling.
