Prague bypass helps move cars and cargo across Europe
In Prague, Czech Republic, a 23-km section of a highway bypass including a 2.3-km, 150-ft-high scaffolding bridge, was paved using Mofalt E®, a polymer-modified bitumen (PMB) made with Elvaloy® RET. The bypass helps move major cargo and cars, connecting to pan-European corridors through from Germany, Czech Republic, Austria and Hungary. Local temperatures range from -20°C to +30°C.
"Great performance of DuPont materials in asphalt mixes and the willingness of DuPont to cooperate on other innovative projects gives us assurance that we can use this material on prestigious and strategic constructions, and provides us with peace-of-mind that our reputation is not at stake."
