RS EME

In a New Zealand first Road Science can now manufacture EME structural asphalt mixes.

EME is a high modulus asphalt developed in France over 30 years ago. It was created to build stronger, longer lasting pavements. In France, EME is typically used in heavy duty pavements for high traffic roads and in complex stress scenarios - such as round abouts.

A standard asphalt mix relies on good aggregate interlock to ensure it possesses sufficient rut resistance. This is adequate for moderately stressed pavements, however the stiffness of the bitumen (typically 60/70) is not sufficient for heavy duty pavements. EME technology employs a very hard bitumen grade, typically 15/25 pen, which gives EME superior performance in heavy duty pavements.
