Gilsonite HMA Binder

 Gilsonite® HMA Binder Grade is intended for use as a reinforcing agent for hot mix binders. It can be dissolved directly in hot bitumen, helping achieve higher PG ratings either in combination with more expensive polymers or as a replacement for them. It can also be added at the asphalt plant during the manufacture of hot mixes. Gilsonite/bitumen blends are permanently stable mixes and produce paving surfaces with higher stability and resistance to water stripping as well as reduced temperature susceptibility. HMA Binder Grade can be hot fluxed with bitumen to lower penetration, increase viscosity, increase softening point, improve stability and increase pavement life. 

Packaging: Gilsonite HMA Binder Grade is available in 50 lb. and 25 kilo net multi-ply paper bags, which may be palletized and stretch wrapped. It is also available in meltable plastic bags, bulk loaded trucks and in a variety of bulk bag sizes, as well as in a variety of grinds and pulverizing options.

Shipping Point:  Check with your technical sales representative or customer service for stock status.
