Our ColdBit product is a recycled base course that can be used a variety of ways. It is a flexible product that makes placement of the product much easier.

The benefits include: -

  • Can be installed in all weather conditions and is instantly trafficable
  • Can be overlaid with hot/cold material after few hours
  • Suitable for footpaths, planned and reactive pothole repairs

Unlike hot mix base course materials, ColdBit does not become unusable when cold, therefore all the material is utilised, with no waste generated.

Proven Performance

ColdBit is easier and quicker to lay than hot mix materials and can be laid either by paver or by hand.

The bitumen will not stick to tools, or any surface used for storage.

ColdBit can be returned to the depot if not used on site and then used at a later date.

Since there is no heat involved in laying the product, the risk of burns and fume inhalation is eliminated.

Performance Statistics

ColdBit is a recycled product which complies with the requirements of Environment Agenda 21.

Our product does not have any of the heat retention problems commonly associated with hot mixed materials, therefore small economical quantities can be taken to site.

Using recycled asphalt preserves the natural environment by conserving energy and reducing transportation. Hot plant emissions are avoided altogether as are the need to quarry and landfill.

It is ideal for depot storage provided the material is kept covered. This prevents atsmospheric deterioration, allowing the material to last for several weeks.

ColdBit Performance Stats
A flexible repair solution for flexible situations.

In a recent case study, a section of canal path in Rotherham was repaired using 20mm Coldbit.

The typical rate of spread of ColdBit is 10m2/T when laid 50mm thick. This gives rate of spread advantage of around 15% against most limestone alternatives.

Unlike hot mix base course materials, ColdBit does not become unusable when cold, therefore all the material is utilised.
