Bring asphalt back to life, beautify it for decorative purposes, or add color to sections of asphalt to designate its use – a common and popular way to denote specific highway lanes, bike paths, walkways, pedestrian crossings, or types of athletic courts. Regardless of your use case, ChromaScape dispersions, liquid colorants and dry colorants can enhance the look and style of your black and colored asphalt.
The liquid and dry colorant options added to asphalt sealcoats and hotmix applications are high-contrast, vivid and naturally-occurring hues that range from rich reds to mossy greens and everything in between. Colorants can be customized, mixed and matched or made to order – blacks are always available, too.
Adding color to asphalt is eco-friendly; no harmful chemicals are used in the process, and colorants and carbon black dispersions meet all federal and state EPA guidelines. Compared to alternatives, asphalt itself requires less energy to produce; repairs are relatively easy and economical, keeping roads open and reducing emissions caused by traffic congestion. The topcoat material that wears down can be reclaimed and recycled time and again, making it truly sustainable.
Adding color to asphalt is often done for decorative purposes, but perhaps its most critical applications are safety-related. Colored asphalt is used by municipal crews to denote school zones, bus loading zones, handicap parking spots in parking lots and shopping centers, no stopping areas, fire lanes, bike paths – all applications that require high contrast and visibility to be both safe and effective for daily use.
The colorants and carbon black dispersions used in our asphalt sealcoating and hotmix applications don’t merely beautify or darken the final product. They also help prevent surface damage due to the deteriorating effects of UV light exposure by improving the fade resistance of the material.
