TOTAL is the fourth largest oil company in the world, operating in more than 130 countries worldwide and employing 111,000 people.
As the European leader in bitumen production and by implementing a full range of highly technical products such as STYRELF and KROMATIS, TOTAL remains more than ever a key player in the international bitumen business.
The bitumen business is divided into two main activities: road and industry. With 11 products themselves divided into several classes, TOTAL provides each client with specifically adapted solutions:
STYRELF is a cross-linked elastomeric polymer-modified bitumen initially developed for use in road surfacings. The STYRELF success story has endured for 25 years with over 6 million metric tons sold. Some of the numerous benefits offered by STYRELF include:
EVATECH is a plastomeric polymer modified bitumen offering some of the above benefits.
Polymer-modified bitumen products are predominantly used in surfacing coarse products such as stone mastic asphalt (SMA) and thin surfacings. STYRELF and EVATECH characteristics contribute to the structure of the asphalt to create quiet even road surfacing with a smooth ride quality; specialist application include:
The KROMATIS 'clear binder' enables asphalts to be produced with a range of high quality coloured surfacings. Benefits include:
EMULSIS MSS is used in 'micro surfacing' road maintenance which protects the road and increases skid-resistance through its elastomeric residual binder.
EMULSIS MG is used in recycling waste from demolition sites and utilities works. Processed at ambient temperatures, it is used for base materials in low category roads, footways and car parks.
EMULSIS NTC and NBC are used in road construction and surfacing overlays to bond layer interfaces within the road structure. These materials provide a waterproofing layer and improve the in-depth performance of the road.
LANTEX and NOVALASTIC are TOTAL Bitumen's biggest volume emulsion materials. They are used for surface dressing, to add a layer of bitumen and chipping:
MODULOTAL is a high modulus range for use in road construction layers. It contributes to the lifespan of roads by using thinner layers than traditional construction materials. This in turn reduces use of finite materials.
AZALT complies with BS EN 12591. These materials are mixed with specially graded aggregate at temperatures between 140°C and 170°C. STELOX is designed for numerous applications including roofing felt and carpet tile. COVREX is a range of very hard industrial bitumens used to make mastic asphalts. It includes:
