Designing Pavements That Do More: Getting the Most from Elvaloy® RET

Pavement design projects best suited to using DuPont™ Elvaloy® RET typically involve broader temperature swings, heavier wheel loads, or more critical links in the transportation infrastructure.  Wherever longer-lasting pavement, or greater smoothness and traction safety is needed (such as at intersections).

Using Elvaloy® RET results in a binder with better-engineered resilience, less stripping, less cracking, and often higher total value from extended service life and reduced or postponed need to disprupt traffic or create business hardships to fix premature pavement failures.

Smoother, Longer-Lasting Airport Runways

In Mexico, Russia and the Czech Republic, runways, taxiways and related pavements have been built using Elvaloy® RET. » Landing projects
Expressways in Growing Economies
Key highways around the world are handling commercial and automobile traffic better, longer, thanks to improved binder performance.  » Bypassing bottlenecks
Reducing the Strain on Intersections
With Elvaloy® RET, asphalt paving stays smoother and safer at intersections, where the forces that cause rutting are often greatest. » Resisting ruts
Resisting Damage from Fuels and Heavy Loadings
Elvaloy® RET asphalt modifier creates a better binder at the molecular level, which helps make pavements more resistant to fuels and deformation.  » Chemically, physically improved
asphalt paving additive projects
Case Studies from Around the World

Projects from around the world illustrate where and why better paved surfaces are being made with Elvaloy® RET.
