ULTILOW

The ultimate fast, sustainable low temperature asphalt

A range of Low Temperature Asphalts manufactured and supplied to comply with TRL Report 666. ULTILOW asphalts embrace proven technology to ensure that the material supplied performs as well as conventional hot asphalts, but with the added benefits of improved workability and allowing earlier opening times to traffic.

Tarmac Ultilow technology is available throughout the UK in a wide range of asphalts. Find your nearest plant on our map or contact you local Tarmac regional office.

Benefits

  1. Ultimate speed

    Earlier reopening of carriageways. ULTILOW is supplied at temperatures typically 40°C lower than a hot equivalent, therefore reaches appropriate trafficking temperatures quicker than hot asphalt. This feature is particularly relevant when thick construction layers are necessary.
  2. Ultimate convenience

    Faster construction times keep busy roads moving, minimising disruption to road users.
  3. Ultimate productivity

    Where time restrictions are relevant, larger sections can be laid and still opened to traffic as required, thereby reducing the overall contract programme duration.
  4. Ultimate availability

    ULTILOW is not seasonal and can be supplied and laid all year round.
  5. Ultimate sustainability

    ULTILOW asphalts can deliver carbon footprint savings of up to 25% compared to hot equivalents.
  6. Ultimate safety

    Lower temperatures mean less risk of burns and reduced fumes and steam on site which can impact on visibility at times.
  7. Ultimate support

    At Tarmac, technical excellence comes as standard. To ensure our customers get the best possible results, expert support is never more than a phone call away.
