Next-generation materials
the key to optimizing railway infrastructure


We have developed next-generation bituminous materials that are sustainable and can be adapted to the specific loads of railway lines.

How did we do it?

We analyzed railway infrastructure requirements so that we could adapt the design of asphalt mixtures for this specific application; this improves the service life of railway infrastructure while reducing maintenance costs.

The result

The new asphalt binders and mixtures are specially designed to be used on railway tracks and provide improved infrastructure performance.
