EUROMAC: Inter-agency technical collaboration

After its successful launch in the Centre-Ouest region in 2014, the Ultra Thin Emulsion-Based Asphalt Mix, moved out of its home territory this year to be implemented throughout France and extends Colas Group’s family of bitumen emulsion mixes.

The dense-grade 0/6 formulation of EUROMAC, with hot precoating of the sand and cold mixing of the emulsion, makes it possible to obtain a coating with a depth of 1.5 cm.

Laid down in quantities of approximately 30 kg/m² with a conventional paver on a traditional tack coat, this technique is an economical alternative to microsurfacing, while offering a little more reprofiling and a reduction in rolling noise.
