Introduction to LBS Asphalt

LBS Asphalt is a formulated mixture of inert fillers, bitumen extenders and binder enhancers designed to be blended with selected aggregates and water based bituminous emulsion in the manufacture of asphalt for general road surfacing and repair.

LBS Asphalt is designed as a labour intensive alternative to traditional machine laid asphalt that maximises labour input whilst still complying with the technical specifications for asphalt design.
