Asfaltia produces a mixture of bituminous and offers maintenance services and conservations of public works.
The road surface is constituted by a set of layers placed horizontally on the ground, with two main functions:
The pavement, which forms part of any road, is composed of layers of bituminous mixture. A bituminous mix is defined as the combination of a hydrocarbon binder mechanism, aggregates, mineral powder and eventually additives so that all the aggregate particles are covered with a thin film and a homogeneous binder.
At the same time bituminous mixtures can be classified according to manufacturing temperatures in cold, tepid, medium-hot and hot mixtures.
Asfaltia is committed to making sure that bituminous mixture manufacturing systems are more environmentally friendly, i.e., bituminous mixtures are made at temperatures below 100°C, with high rates of recycled materials, not only for its greater energy efficiency and environmental sustainability, but also for the health of our workers.
Furthermore, through R+D and innovation, we develop specific products for any necessary situation. For example a bituminous mixture specific to road tunnels, additive added to improve its burning behaviour, bio-blends etc...
Besides bituminous mixtures in their five asphalt plants located in Basque Country and in Castile and León, Asfaltia also offers maintenance and conservation service.
