UK: Cemex UK has announced the launch of Viabase, an engineered asphalt concrete. The company says that the product is especially suited to use in residential housing estate roads, where it will be exposed to construction traffic before being surfaced after houses are built. The launch supports the UK government’s drive to increase house building to 300,000units/yr.

Europe regional asphalt, paving and building products director Carl Platt said, “With Viabase, we are pleased to offer a way to ensure the longevity of housing development roads, which standard materials struggle to provide if the surface course is not placed soon after. Viabase provides a highly durable, low maintenance surface which will meet the challenges presented by heavy duty vehicles and prevent long-term problems in the overall pavement construction.”

The company will produce Viabase at all its UK asphalt plants, where it will be available for delivery to customers or collection.
