ReNUBIT™/ReGENR8™ For Paving

A petro-chemical based additive developed for both the Paving & Roofing Industries, ReNUBIT™/ReGENR8™ has been designed with polymer compatibility and stability as cornerstone properties. ReNUBIT™/ReGENR8™ is used in a wide variety of asphalts where it helps improve low temperature properties (Low PG grade, Stress Relaxation, Low temperature fatigue and fracture). It also promotes stability and compatibility in polymer formulations and helps reduce viscosity. This top product has found use in Emulsions, Scrub, Fog and Chip Seals. It is also used in low PG grade modification of many asphalts. It is very stable at production and use temperatures. A free-flowing liquid at moderate temperatures, ReNUBIT™/ReGENR8™ is available in bulk trucks and by special request, 55-gallon drums. Trial quantities are available.

Please note that the ReNUBIT™ product is marketed under the brand names ReNUBIT™ or ReGENR8™ in various countries around the world.

Improved Low Temperature Fracture of PAV Aged Materials

ReNUBIT™/ReGENR8™ improves strain tolerance at low temperatures. Fracture behavior results, using Single Edged Notched Beam (SENB) Test, where ReNUBIT™/ReGENR8™ extended the post peak fracture resistance and increased the deformation to failure.
