Dowfoam – Our own foamed bitumen product

 
Dowfoam is our bespoke version of a stabilised, foamed bitumen material. It is the most economic and resourceful way of utilising recycled aggregates for road and pathway construction.

Foamed bitumen stabilised material, internationally known as foamix, can be used to replace traditional hot mix asphalt products for use as base and/or binder course layers. The product contains up to 90% recycled aggregates, generally won from cold milling the existing carriageway, which are then processed through a special batching plant to produce a cold lay asphalt. The unique process produces a strong, durable material that reduces the carbon footprint for any surfacing works. Our foamed bitumen product is called Dowfoam.

Dowfoam – The Facts:
• No expensive plant to lay or insulated vehicles required to maintain temperatures

• Quick and easy to lay, less dense as hot mix which can give material savings

• Can be trafficked immediately and overlaid immediately without the need for tack coat

• Uses recycled and/or marginal aggregates, which saves on waste and saves valuable natural resources

• Energy efficient manufacture which saves on CO2 emissions

• ISO9001 quality controlled process
