PROSABLE--AN INNOVATION IN BLACK-TOP CONSTRUCTION

THE SPECIAL BINDING AGENT "PROSABLE" IS USED WITH BITUMEN; IT INCREASES THE WORKABILITY OF THE MIX, IT CAN BE STORED FOR A LONG TIME, IT IS RESISTANT TO FROST AND ADHERES TO ANY, EVEN MOIST BASES, SO THAT ADHESION BRIDGES ARE NO LONGER REQUIRED. IT CAN BE USED WITH ALL AGGREGATES FROM FINE-GRAINED UP TO 0/20 MM, IN THE NORMAL GRADINGS. THE FINISHED SURFACING REACHES VALUES OF UP TO 0.85 WITH THE LEROUX PENDULUM. APPLICATIONS SO FAR IN FRANCE, ITALY, ENGLAND AND SWITZERLAND HAVE PROVED TO BE SATISFACTORY. THE BEST RESULTS WERE OBTAINED WITH NATURAL SAND MIXTURES. /FG-RRL/
