Dosing 5 % of Lucowax 1761® can:
  • Reduce viscosity and therefore improve the compressibility of asphalt
  • Reduce penetration
  • Increase the softening point
  • Improve water resistance
  • Increase the pasticity span and therefore lead to better deformation resistance of asphalt, especially at high temperatures
  • Allows for a reduction in asphalt mixing and laying temperatures by up to 30 °C saving energy, reducing fume emissions and minimize oxidative hardening
  • Allows for the use of a higher percentage of Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP)
