Gilsonite is used as an additive in recycled asphalt and asphalt binder to build durable roads. making high performance road surface only would be possible by Gilsonite because only special properties of Gilsonite will make this possibility.

GILSONITE FOR ASPHALT HOT MIX
Gilosnite as asphalt binder modifier and because its special properties will help to the Roads asphalts to have better performance against the high temperature in countries that have warm weathers and against deformation too.
when Gilsonite using in old asphalt modifying of roads will increase the life of old asphalt. BY using Gilsonite in roads asphalts the asphalt layer would be stronger and 20% thinner.
Gilsonite as an asphalt modifier can directly add at the hot mix plant with no additional equipment and it will give excellent bonding properties to Asphalt and will make it waterproof too and will Reduced temperature sensitivity of asphalt.
GILSONITE AS PAVEMENT SEALERS
Gilsonite because of its properties will help solvent of emulsion pavement sealers dry quicker, look better and last longer and will help the pavement sealers stay black longer and unique molecular properties of Gilsonite as well as its strong adhesion will make the sealer to be waterproof.
Making pavement with more life time will help the environment too and rejuvenating the used asphalt pavement of roads with Gilsonite will significantly save energy and will also ultimately reduce environmental damage and the use of natural resources.
As a result, we can briefly say that the use of Gilsonite for asphalt pavement sealer has properties such as
- Superior appearance and weathering properties
- Perfect bonding properties
- pavement sealer stay black longer
- Asphalt will have water resistance properties
HOW GILSONITE INCREASING CEMENTING SLURRY BENEFITS
Gilsonite according to its special chemical and physical properties will increase the benefits of Slurry, for example, Maintains compressive strength, unlike coal or fly ash, Increases flexibility, Reduces cracking, Heals micro-fissures, Reduces permeability, Strengthens bond to the formation and the casing, Reduces environmental risk, Assures zonal isolation and may other items will change when big drilling companies are using Gilsonite.
GILSONITE WILL WILL REDUCE ASPHALT COSTS
By using Gilsonite in Asphalt production big asphalt company can reduce the costs about 13% . the studies are showing that by using Gilsonite about 5% till 6% in bitumen as raw material of Asphalt productions would be equal to 24% consumption of other substances.
Some companies even use up to 8% of Gilsonite in the production of road asphalt to create more resistance to temperature change and deformation.
The Modified asphalt that made with Gilsonite will have properties such as:
- Higher softening point and resistance for cracking.
- Better viscosity and elasticity that will reduce road cracking.
- Asphalt have lower lower static and dynamic indentation
- Excellent performance at very low temperatures
