Alfabit polymer bitumen binder

Alfabit — polymer bitumen binder with technical specifications, which exceeds similar specifications of traditional road bitumen and secures improved road coating durability.

Alfabit PBB is applied in various road construction areas, but it is most effective for roads with intensive traffic.

Alfabit PBB was used for racing roads coating: “Smolensk Circle” (FIA certified as category 2 track),  Moscow Raceway and Sochi Racing Track (FIA certified as Formula-1 track).

In Moscow PBB Alfabit was used for the construction of Moscow Ring Road sections, Kutuzovskiy avenue, Rublevskoye highway, Third Transport Ring, and in Saint Petersburg – Nevskiy avenue, Vyborgskoye highway, city streets and embankments.

Alfabit PBB has been used at the Russian Federal motorways, managed by State Company Avtodor since 2010, which is a confirmation of Alfabit improved consumer specifications which secures road coating durability.  

Alfabit PBB range includes two special grades: Alfabit Aero PBB and Alfabit Bridge PBB, which have improved operational performance to resolve specific practical tasks in various segments of airfields and bridges construction. High requirements for heat and cracking resistance, aging and raveling resistance secure not only constructions reliability and durability (estimated service life) but also traffic safety requirements compliance.
