In addition, it is more elastic and according to the temperature in Indonesia. Based on the results of research and lab tests, Polymer Asphalt has 3 times better resistance than ordinary asphalt, can reduce cracking at low temperatures, make asphalt more stable at high temperatures, more resistant to abrasion, better able to withstand heavy loads and increase durability. asphalt pavement.
