Rhinophalt is a unique, innovative and sustainable method of making bituminous bound surfaces, like asphalt, macadam and surface dressing, last longer. Likened to a ‘wood preservative’ for asphalt, Rhinophalt is a cold spay, rapid cure surface treatment which penetrates into the bituminous material and protects the surface against the damaging effects of frost, water ingress, weathering and oxidization. Additionally, following the chemical re-engineering of the existing binder, Rhinophalt seals in the oils and resins which are essential to retain the flexibility of the treated surface. Rich in Gilsonite, a naturally occurring 99% pure mineral asphalt, Rhinophalt effectively delays the deterioration of a treated pavement by around 5 years.

In order to retain the most value out of the asset, Rhinophalt is best applied to roads that are in good condition. Notwithstanding this, Rhinophalt can be used effectively to retard the deterioration of bituminous bound surfaces in any condition as part of individual asset management strategies.

Rhinophalt is completely sustainable, we recommend that the Rhinophalt treatment is repeated every 4 to 5 years. Regular reapplication will continue to delay the deterioration of the asphalt or macadam asset.
Rhinophalt can be used anywhere where there is a bituminous bound surface, this includes roads and highways, airfields, car parks and pedestrian infrastructure.
Rhinophalt has been certified HAPAS (Highway Authorities Product Approval Scheme), which is a United Kingdom recognized approval scheme for innovative products and systems used in highway works. Besides, the quality of Rhinophalt has been tested rigorously by international independent parties. Rhinophalt has been using in many countries and areas such as Europe, America, China, India, and Singapore. In Vietnam, the Ministry of Transport has issued the temporary guideline about construction technology and acceptance of Rhinophalt application for asphalt concrete pavement preservation.
Rhinophalt ensures that the asset that you own, or are responsible for, lasts much longer and with the growing divide between maintenance costs and available budgets, these benefits can only increase with time.
Rhinophalt is very competitively priced. Cost comparisons against conventional resurfacing show in excess of 50% savings in all applications and in some cases as much as 80% savings have been recognized. Given the ever increasing cost of new asphalt and macadam materials, these savings are only going to become bigger in the future.
Worldwide, Rhinophalt has been installed on over 1.5 billion square meters of road, airfield and pedestrian infrastructure and holds a proven track record of sustainable maintenance. In the UK alone there are 26 year old asphalt surfaces which remain in excellent condition following Rhinophalt application, and there are sites in the USA which are now 40 years old and still going strong.
The area to be treated needs to be clean and dry with a minimum surface temperature of 5°C. Cat’s-eyes and ironwork should be masked and any affected road markings can be replaced once the Rhinophalt treatment has cured.

The impregnated Rhinophalt treatment becomes an integral part of the surface material and, consequently, there is nothing to fail, much like creosote in wood. Additionally, comprising of natural mineral asphalt, there is nothing within the Rhinophalt material that could cause any realistic form of damage to the treated pavement.
• Rhinophalt can be used very effectively on surface dressing as it prevents deterioration through oxidisation of the bitumen binder. Additionally, the Rhinophalt treatment can help to prevent the bitumen rich dressing from ‘bleeding’ in hot weather due to the excellent heat resistant properties of the Gilsonite
Rhinophalt materials can be applied with a hand lance for small areas, or sites with restricted access
Rhinophalt needs to be applied to a dry surface with a road temperature between 5 and 60°C
The curing time of Rhinophalt will be determined by ambient temperatures, experience has shown this period to be between 1.5 to 2.5 hours.
Independent environmental studies have been undertaken in comparing the use of Rhinophalt to conventional road maintenance. Historic records have demonstrated that with the pro-active use of 2 Rhinophalt treatments it is likely to double the functional life of an asphalt or macadam surface. To this regard, the use of Rhinophalt will deliver a staggering 94% reduction in Co2 emissions when compared with a traditional re-surfacing alternative.
