Ultimate service


  1. Ultimate waste management

    On-site closed loop manufacturing virtually eliminates site waste and minimises environmental impact.
  2. Ultimate sustainability

    Waste recycling and cold mix paving temperatures mean major reductions in energy consumption and associated carbon emissions. Available data also confirms ULTIFOAM to be an acceptable means of encapsulating tar, thereby avoiding the associated issues with tar handling.
  3. Proven performance

    In 2008 this process achieved ISO 9001 accreditation. Since then it has been used successfully on many of the UK’s busiest routes.
  4. Ultimate control

    In a highly controlled process, waste asphalt is crushed and screened for consistency, then combined with additional aggregate, foamed bitumen and a hydraulic cement or lime binder.
