Aggregate Industries launch new ProLay system
Company introduces range of bespoke asphalts designed to reduce whole-life costs
AGGREGATE Industries have launched ProLay – a new-generation of asphalts offering bespoke solutions tailored to individual customer requirements. Through a consultative approach and early involvement in a project’s design stage, AI’s contracting division can carry out site investigations to identify and deliver tailored whole-life solutions via its full service ProLay system.
ProLay solutions are more than an asphalt offering; the new bespoke service assists clients to identify the right first-time pavement design solution, whilst state-of-the-art smart surfacing technology captures the pavement data required to support asset management, driving project cost efficiencies and extending the service life of pavements.
The ProLay system offers a range of specialist asphalts that contain high grade bitumen, which can be mixed at low temperatures to reduce carbon emissions. The product range includes: ProLay Ultra 942, a specially developed asphalt for fuel efficiency when combined with rolling resistance technology; ProLay Curve, for high stress applications; ProLay Single, for thick lifts and self-regulation; and ProLay Silent, an environmentally friendly ultra-low noise asphalt solution.
There is also ProLay Grip, an alternative to high-friction surfacing; and ProLay Light, which contains Lytag – a low density aggregate with a dense asphalt mix, suitable for applications where weight restrictions apply. AI said all ProLay asphalts come with manufacture, supply and lay warranties, with up to a 10-year warranty on approved applications.
Guy Edwards, chief executive officer of Aggregate Industries UK, commented: ‘Our new ProLay System changes the way in which asphalt solutions are currently selected and delivered and can assist in reducing CO2. Our digital capability ensures quality control of manufacture and install, as well as providing data for future asset management.’
Paddy Murphy, managing director of AI UK’s contracting division, added: ‘Adopting a collaborative approach with our clients has supported the identification and development of these next-generation asphalts that will meet the accelerated future trafficking volume and changing climates. We are so confident in our product technical expertise and laying capabilities, that we are willing to offer extended warranties with our ProLay System.’
