On road sustainability

November 2006
Sustain' Magazine;2006, Vol. 7 Issue 6, p70
The article provides information on a proactive road preservation and sustainability strategy applied to the Aberconway Road in Morden, England. The solution is called Rhinophalt,a cold-applied, gilsonite material which penetrates into the surface and cures within a matter of hours to form a membrane that stops the essential oils from leaching out. The material has no adverse effect on a road's skid resistance or texture depth. Also, it can be used on existing as well as new surfaces to halt he natural aging process and is completely sustainable.
