Coloured asphalt with no loss of performance.
Fircolor is a hot, coloured bitumen mix consisting of a synthetic binder, aggregate and pigments. During mixing, all the aggregate particles are coated with a homogeneous film of binder in the required shade.
As this is creative paving which also maintains the properties of bitumen mixes, its applications are very diverse. It is applied in squares, car parks, cycle lanes and country paths.

Fircolor – Arenisca
This system is similar to that of coloured mixtures, but no pigment is added to the synthetic binder. The binder has a honey-coloured resin base. Varying the tones of the aggregates used provides a paving similar to decomposed granite gravel.

The synthetic binder used in this mixture permits colouring by applying pigments during mixing. The coloured synthetic binder combines with the colour and size of the aggregate used in the mixture.
A wide range of combinations are available, permitting a wide variety in coloured paving, without affecting the mechanical properties of asphalt mixtures.
