• Ever increasing traffic.

These are all factors that create

• New aircraft landing gear

punishing conditions and

configurations. • Higher axle loads and higher tire pressures. • Increased “stacking” and heavy weight standing load. • Occasional fuel leaks and spills.

significantly increase the stress that pavements must endure. Sound familiar? If you’re dealing with any combination of these factors. You know firsthand how they persistently ravage and erode your high traffic, heavy-duty asphalt surfaces – and your budget.

StellarFlex FR is a safe, worker-friendly, long-term durable material that incorporates specific polymers into the bituminous mix to provide excellent fuel resistant properties. As these polymers vastly strengthen and improve the properties of the asphalt mix, just one application of Stellar Flex FR is sufficient for the long haul. Since introduced in 1996, this technology has been withstanding extreme trials of wear and tear, adding to your long-term cost savings and eliminating the need for hazardous coal tar applications.

Asphalt mixes incorporating StellarFlex FR are characterized by: • High resistance to permanent deformation • High resistance to fatigue cracking • High resistance to thermal cracking • High flexibility (excellent elastic recovery properties) • High stability • Excellent workability • High resistance to fuel damage

Using StellarFlex FR results in long-term savings as it’s the most costeffective way to deal with the punishing conditions that heavy-duty asphalt pavements endure.

Now, you have another option.


“FR” = Fuel Resistance Standard

StellarFlex FR

StellarFlex FR is uniquely formulated to be resistant to diesel and jet fuel, which makes it ideally suited for pavement applications in airports, high-traffic heavy-truck roadways, fueling stations, truck stops, and fuel storage tank areas. No other asphalt binder can deliver the fuel resistance shield that you get with StellarFlex FR.

Application

The properties of StellarFlex FR make its application ideal for the construction and maintenance of pavements exposed to extreme stress – the types encountered when heavy, slow-moving traffic combined with exposure to diesel and jet fuel, make typical pavements of any kind high maintenance and high cost. These types of stress are encountered at airport aprons, taxiways, ends of runways, fuel filling areas, truck parking areas and high standing volume truck roadways. StellarFlex FR needs only to be used in the surface layer of the pavement (minimum 1.5” thickness) to provide superior protection against the failure modes encountered in these applications. And StellarFlex FR meets the requirements of the new Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) P-601 Fuel Resistant Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) Pavement specification.

Production

Asphalt mixes using the StellarFlex FR binder can be produced at any hot mix plant without the need for modifications or changes in operating procedures. Therefore, StellarFlex FR provides the most cost effective means to handle these punishing conditions without the need for additional capital or operating costs in its application.
