    An Innovative technology

    Biostrasse is the innovative answer to the growing need for materials that guarantee high performance, safety and comfort for users, while fully respecting the environment. It is a technology for the realisation of carriageable and non-carriageable paved surfaces, capable of supporting heavy loads, that does not fall within the traditional category of compacting and stabilising materials, which require periodical intervention for maintenance.

Biostrasse is capable of sustaining heavy loads; since it has no plastic materials, it is not subject to sinking or swelling. It is particularly resistant to atmospheric agents, chlorides and anti-freeze treatments. It can also be laid in areas with rigid temperatures (starting from + 5°) and in addition to making the pavement permeable, the presence of microscopic air bubbles in the screed guarantees significant reduction of noise due to rolling wheels.

  • Heavy loads resistance
  • Low wear
  • Doesn't contain plastic materials
  • Grass and roots resistant
  • Chlorides resistant
  • Salt spray resistant
  • Acids resistant
  • Non flammable
  • Reduces tire rolling noise
  • Non thermal

Economic

Economic

The total absence of substances derived from fossil carbon free Biostrasse from international speculation on these raw materials. Additionally, no reinforcement or dilation joints are required. It requires limited banking and has an extremely low index of wear and tear, thereby requiring less intervention for maintenance. The single layer installation and the use of traditional machinery contribute to the significant reduction in costs and realisation time.

  • Applied cold
  • Requires no dilation joints
  • Requires no curbing
  • Requires no reinforcement
  • Single layer screed (rapid spreading)
  • High resistance to wear and tear
  • Simple maintenance
  • Can be processed with traditional machinery
  • Reduces the road superstructure
  • Structural fibres and micro-fibres can be
    added to increase flexibility
  • Reduction of the network for drainage of rainwater
  • High friction coefficient values

Safe

Safe

Biostrasse pavements are coloured throughout the thickness with natural pigments. The use of light shades of colour improves nighttime visibility, improving the safety of users and reducing illumination costs. Permeability and drainage of paving realised with Biostrasse eliminate the effect of aquaplaning and the pulverisation of water caused by moving vehicles. The porosity of Biostrasse paving increases the traction and adherence of tyres.

  • Optimal adherence
  • Light shades of colour for improved visibility
  • Permeable/draining
  • Eliminates aquaplaning
  • Eliminates the pulverisation of rainwater
  • Reduces reflection of headlights in the event of rain
