Ex Situ Foamed bitumen Stabilisation

    ​Dear All

    Recently we carried out insitu foamed bitumen stabilisation on a number of industrial Roads with great success, we are now looking at doing a major patching program on a number of sites around council urban roads. The method we propose is Ex-Situ (Plant Based) foamed bitumen where we can stock pile the treated material and carry out works on the individual sites over a two week period.

    I am chasing background info from councils who have had some experience in this technology, i.e. was it succesful how much per cubic meter/tonne did it cost, was there any issues in construction methods in putting the stock piled material in the ground, workability traing of depot staff. etc etc.

    I would very much appreciate any help in this, you can email any info if necessary.   (costings etc for privacy)

    Cheers,   Phil

    Hang on for a while until Carboncor Australia Pty Ltd and their state distributors get going. The company was only set up on 11 April this year in Darwin, closest to Singapore.

    I understand they've already covered an airstrip in the NT, and recently did some road patch up work in Townsville.

    The product is a cold premix asphalt to mix and clean up with water. It's easy to use, has a long shelf life, up to 24 months in bags and even 10 days loose on the back of a truck.

    It was developed in South Africa in 1999, and has taken it via Malaysia and Singapore to get to Australia.
