Rosnano developed an environmentally friendly material that increases service life of roads
'Eladorm' is a new modifier which is suitable for asphalt mixes of all types. It is designed to solve the problem of longevity and safety of roads. For example, asphalt with the addition of 'Eladorm' is up to five times more resistant to formation of tracing ruts compared with asphalt based on unmodified bitumen. The Federal Road Agency (Rosavtodor) approved in August the use of the material in construction and reconstruction projects of federal level highways.
To manufacture the new coating old tires could be used which would reduce the damage to the environment, Vakhterov explained.
