New Honeywell Additives For Asphalt Decrease Paving Energy Costs And Pollutant Emissions

MORRIS TOWNSHIP, N.J., March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today that it has introduced a line of additives for asphalt aimed at helping the paving industry decrease energy usage, reduce emissions and save money while helping meet demanding road specifications.

The new Honeywell Titan™ additives for asphalt have been proven in real-life paving trials (subject to weather and paving practices) to reduce the fuel required to mix asphalt by 13 percent and harmful emissions generated by road paving by as much as 82 percent, while helping to minimize rutting. Depending on the asphalt's composition, using Honeywell Titan can also reduce the amount of additive required by nearly 30 percent.

"Asphalt manufacturers and pavers around the world are looking for cost-effective ways to make better roads, and Honeywell Titan additives can help them meet those challenges," said Phil Wojcik, global business leader for Honeywell Specialty Additives. "Honeywell Titan additives for asphalt are built on more than 50 years of technology experience in additives and other advanced materials."

Using Honeywell Titan additives can reduce energy needed during the manufacturing and paving processes. By adding small quantities of Honeywell Titan additives, asphalt flows as much as 60 to 80 percent more easily compared with asphalt modified with traditional technologies. Improved asphalt fluidity allows for temperature reduction during both the manufacturing and paving processes, so less energy is needed and costs are reduced for both asphalt manufacturers and road pavers. In addition, asphalt formulated with Honeywell Titan doesn't require high shear mix equipment, making it easy to handle and use.

Honeywell Titan additives also help meet demanding modified asphalt and road specifications, and can help minimize rutting when compared with other products. Decreased rutting could help roads last longer and decrease the amount of maintenance required.
