During the Exhibition for French Mayors and Local Authorities held at the Paris Parc des Expositions from November 20 to 22, 2012, the Group will present its most innovative road and urban development products, processes and equipment in the field of responsible development.  

Three flagship products will be highlighted:

- Colbifibre®, a reinforced crack-resistant structure combining a fiber-filled surface dressing and a fiber-filled micro surfacing. This technique provides an impervious layer and reinforces skid resistance, while ensuring driver comfort and noise reduction. Colbifibre® was one of six award winning products at the Sétra 2012 Road Innovation contest;

- Ecomac®, asphalt concrete produced by heating cold mix with special dedicated equipment. The process does not give off dust or fumes, and drastically cuts VOC and greenhouse gas emissions since its manufacturing temperature is close to 80°C;

- Optigrip®, the latest generation of heavy duty skid resistant surfacing. The mix has been specially designed for accident prone areas for new construction projects or as part of maintenance programs.

In the field of road safety and signaling, Aximum will present Axipark®, its parking management system, Sesame®, an access management unit, as well as a number of other products designed to make roads safer. 

Present for the first time ever at the Exhibition for French Mayors and Local Authorities, the Colas Group's waterproofing specialist Smac will present its line of mastic asphalt flooring called Néophalte Décor®. Wear-resistant and impervious, this visually-appealing product exists in a wide range of colors that can be used both indoors and outdoors.
