Aggregate Industries launches ProLay System for tailored asphalts solutions
Leading construction and infrastructure player, Aggregate Industries has launched its new ProLay System™, a new generation of asphalts offering bespoke solutions tailored to the application, all under Aggregate Industries manufacture, supply and lay warranties.
The system will offer the latest industry-leading technology and data capture capabilities to drive project cost efficiencies and extend the life of pavements, with up to a 10 year warranty on approved applications.
Through a consultative approach and early involvement in a project’s design stage, Aggregate Industries’ Contracting Division is able to carry out site investigations to identify and deliver tailored whole-life solutions via its new ProLay System.
ProLay solutions are more than an asphalt offering; the new 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. The ProLay System comes complete with as-built digital data records and an end of warranty report (as applicable).
The ProLay System offers a new range of exclusive products that contain high grade bitumen, that can be mixed at low temperatures to reduce CO2. The range includes an innovative carbon efficient solution, ProLay Ultra 942, a specially designed asphalt that, in combination with rolling resistance technology, leads to customer fuel efficiency. ProLay Curve, for high stress applications.
ProLay Single, for thick lifts and self regulating. ProLay Silent, an environmentally friendly ultra-low noise solution. ProLay Grip, an alternative to high friction surfacing and ProLay Light, which contains Lytag – a low density aggregate with a dense asphalt mix, making it an ultra lightweight solution that’s suitable for applications where weight restrictions apply.
Guy Edwards, Chief Executive Officer at Aggregate Industries, 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 Contracting at Aggregate Industries, 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.”
