On May 6, 2014, GlobeCore successfully launched a new UVB-2 unit for the preparation of modified bitumen.
The GlobeCore UVB-2 unit is newly designed and is especially in high demand among companies specializing in the preparation of asphalt top layers, protective layers of cement coatings and mastics. The GlobeCore UVB-2 allows for modification of bitumen by adding in special polymers, adhesive additives and plasticizers.
The use of modified bitumen in asphalt mixes has the following advantages over traditional bitumen products:
- Extended operating temperature range of asphalt and concrete paving;
- High resistance to deformation, which occur due to traffic loads; and
- Increasing the service life of the paving materials.
The GlobeCore UVB-2 is a universal machine that can successfully implement virtually any of the existing methods of bitumen modification. The UVB-2 works with various modifiers and materials. Depending on the needs of your company, the UVB-2 can be designed for capacity of 4 m3/ h or 20 m3/ h. At GlobeCore we are flexible and the needs of our customers always come first.
