Road Pro® NT
Industrial Road Dust Control
Road Pro NT is a polymer-modified asphalt emulsion that stands up to the sun, wind, weather and traffic-loading better than a typical asphalt emulsion over both the short and long term. It is the perfect alternative to an ordinary asphalt emulsion that will not only improve road performance, but reduce your life cycle costs in the process.
Creates stronger roads with greater elasticity and durability than traditional asphalt emulsions
The polymers in Road Pro NT add strength, elasticity, adhesion, cohesion and durability to a typical asphalt emulsion. By locking the hazardous components of asphalt in place so they cannot escape into the air, non-corrosive Road Pro NT reduces the risk of exposure to poly-nuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). It eliminates concern about dust, pitting, cracking, or failing to cure properly. Treated surfaces resist weather damage and do not become tacky. Road Pro NT is also your assurance that you will be in compliance with Clean Air Act requirements regarding PM10 emissions.
Better chemistry = better performance
Asphalt used in an ordinary asphalt emulsion is thermoplastic; it gets softer when heated and firmer when cooled. The asphalt will soften in the heat of summer resulting in ruts and tracks, and will harden in the winter, which leads to cracking. In the heat of sun, volatile compounds evaporate from the asphalt, and the surface will oxidize and become brittle.
With its polymer modification, RoadPro NT changes the flow properties of the liquid asphalt so it can stand up to the sun, wind, weather and traffic loadings. It is providing improved overall performance for Midwest customers because it improves dust control performance and surface life while reducing maintenance costs.
