Asphalt Polymer Innovations

At BASF, we are committed to helping our customers create roads that are safer, long lasting, and more cost effective. We are proud to partner with the pavement industry to develop chemistry that meet the highest highway standards and preserves today’s roads for tomorrow.

Polymer innovation is the driving force behind asphalt roads performing better and lasting longer. If you're in the country, city, or somewhere in between, pavement preservation with systematic scheduled maintenance programs are a must. BASF polymers will help protect and extend pavement service life, promote safer road conditions, and prevent structural failure. 

Whether you want to polymer modify slurry applications for preservation, make thin overlays for maintenance, open graded friction course for driver safety, porous asphalt for conservation, or want to improve strength and reduce tracking of bond coat emulsions, BASF technologies can help.
