Brands for asphalt modification

BUTONAL®

Properties of SBR polymers

Butonal® NS 175 for asphalt modification

  • Anionic dispersion of styrene-butadiene polymer.
  • Used in hot mix asphalt and emulsion applications.
  • Readily disperses in asphalt cements,
  • Improves binder strength, ductility and flexibility to meet SHRP (Strategic Highway Research Program) specifications. Under this programme you will find all the definitions for roads in the US.
