The use of carefully graded aggregate and a high binder content ensures VIABASE is more able to resist the impact of heavy vehicles associated with the construction phase of housing developments when compared to traditionally used dense asphalt concrete mixes.
Benefits Of VIABASE
- Highly resistant to wear from heavy vehicles associated with construction
- Smooth, dense surface finish
- Resistant to deformation and less prone to raveling.
- Highly durable, low maintenance surface.
- Easier to clean prior to application of surface courses.
VIABASE can be used for a variety of applications, including housing development roads, large parking areas, farm roads & tracks and industrial construction sites.
VIABASE is produced at all CEMEX Asphalt supply plants and can be delivered or collected. VIABASE can be used all year round by any experienced contractor. The below guidelines should be followed to ensure durability of the surface is maintained.
All our asphalt production facilities are quality assured to BS EN ISO 9001 and our asphalt is UKCA marked through our third-party certification to BS EN 13108 Factory Production Control.
Through our National Technical Centre based on Southam, we are committed to bring our customers the highest quality and most innovative products in the industry.
All of our asphalts conform to the latest European standards and are designed for consistency and reliability. Our experts can advise on conformity to standards as well as specific applications. For more information on this industry leading product please call our sales team on 0345 155 6367
VIABASE® Case Studies
The Panattoni Park Bolton project is an industrial and logistics location at the heart of North-West England. As part of this new development CEMEX partnered with Derek Lewis to provide Asphalt materials to the site. These materials were initially to be standard Base and Binder mixes followed by a suitable Surface course. As the details of the planned material were discussed it became apparent that there would be an area of the site were binder material would be trafficked during the continued construction of civils and would not have a surface course laid for a sustained period. During this method of construction, the binder layer is subject to the impact of heavy construction vehicles which can result in wear and tear. This can sometimes result in rigorous cleaning being required and possibly a replacement of the top surface before the final Surface course can be laid.
VIABASE® is an engineered Asphalt Concrete specifically designed for use in the construction of industrial sites and housing estate roads. The use of carefully graded aggregate and a high binder content ensures VIABASE® is more able to resist the impact of heavy vehicles associated with the construction phase of industrial and housing developments when compared to traditionally used dense asphalt concrete mixes. As such it was agreed that VIABASE® would be used to replace the traditional Binder layer in this area reducing the potential these problems onsite.
VIABASE® Is highly resistant to wear from heavy vehicles associated with construction. It has a smooth dense surface finish. It is resistant to deformation and less prone to ravelling. It is a highly durable, low maintenance surface and is easier to clean prior to application of surface courses.
