NOVARES hydrocarbon resins are used as binders in road construction and construction chemicals. These thermoplastic resins offer a softening point of 140°C.
The following properties can be influenced by the use of NOVARES resins
Synthetic bitumen is used in roads, bicycle lanes, bus lanes, pedestrian areas and motorway tunnels. The clear binder can be pigmented for aesthetic or safety reasons. This allows clearly identifiable safety areas to be created for road users, ensures better lighting conditions, enhances safety in tunnels, and offers more design freedom for landscape designers and architects.
