AsphaClin is a natural microcrystallic hydrated aluminosilicate with its typical 3-dimensional structure which includes pores and cavities of a molecular size. Its channels can adsorb various substances – both polar and non-polar, inorganic and organic molecules, odorous substances, etc. Thanks to its unique properties, it is capable of retaining solid, gaseous and liquid substances.
Thanks to its adsorption and molecular sieving qualities, zeolite - clinoptilolite has a variety of industrial uses. Under natural conditions, its inner capacity holds water molecules and it becomes an active sorbent after desiccation. Natural zeolite offers optimal utilization of physical treatment in the production of asphalt and during laying of asphalt.
The application of AsphaClin decreases the temperature required for asphalt production, which helps decrease emissions, in particularly during the winter months, leading to improved workability of the asphalt. AsphaClin extends the workability time of the asphalt mixture during asphalt paving and helps decrease operating costs. AsphaClin, a product based on natural zeolite, is an ecological solution that does not represent an ecological burden in asphalt paving and improving working conditions for workers in production, but also during the actual laying of asphalt.
