Rosphalt

Rosphalt ® credited with saving the state of Wisconsin hundreds of thousands of dollars

A recent article on PublicWorks.com credited Chase Corporation’s Rosphalt ® with saving the state of Wisconsin several thousands of hours in repair time and hundreds of thousands of dollars in costs for the I-94 and I-43 bridge deck projects. These heavily traveled decks in downtown Milwaukee were completed in less than 48 hours and have enjoyed longer life and improved performance, according to Butch Benish of Construction Resources Management Company.

Rosphalt is a unique, concentrated thermoplastic additive which creates a waterproofing and wearing surface which is resistant to both rutting and shoving. It uses standard paving equipment with a single step operation making the installation quick and easy.

Rosphalt is a high performance, “dry mix” added directly to the asphalt plant. It has been proven to last 3 ½ times longer than standard Hot Melt Asphalt (HMA) designs (by the National Center for Asphalt Technology).

Chase recently introduced a lower temperature version designated as Rosphalt 50-LT which we began shipping for the 2010 paving season.

Rosphalt products are well suited to high traffic and heavy truck traffic conditions as well as providing enhanced performance characteristics for a variety of applications. The company has manufactured Rosphalt for nearly 40 years, serving the construction industry in North America and the world.
