How BIORESTOR works

At a fraction of the cost of asphalt replacement BIORESTOR treatments can be applied every three to five years to indefinitely extend surface life.

  • BIORESTOR is sprayed onto the road surface. On contact it seals and penetrates asphalt. Depending upon the surface type no sand blinding is needed.
  • It cures in as little as 30 minutes minimising the usual traffic disruption when there is a closure of roads, car parks, industrial yards or runways.
  • BIORESTOR is almost opaque so road markings show through and are not compromised, and in addition it improves the road markings wear and lifespan.
  • BIORESTOR adds agricultural oils and polymers to the top 20 mm of the asphalt surface. Penetration, viscosity, stability, and flexibility, are significantly improved restoring asphalt to a full performance condition.
  • BIORESTOR prevents ravelling and cracking, and the oxidising effects of rainwater and the sun’s ultraviolet rays and traffic wear.
  • BIORESTOR seals asphalt surfaces, preventing moisture from penetrating into the pavement and creating potholes. It also reduces construction joint failure.
  • BIORESTOR delivers maximum benefit and cost savings when applied as soon as possible after road laying. It is very necessary as oxidation begins the moment the asphalt is laid. Research shows 40-60% of oxidation occurs in the first two years.
  • The longer that treatment with BIORESTOR is delayed the greater the chance of road deterioration beyond a point of effective preservation.
  • BIORESTOR treated surfaces maintained safe friction values.
  • BIORESTOR postpones or even eliminates the need for chip seal, which can cause annoying vehicle paint damage, cracked windscreens and road noise, especially frustrating in urban areas.
