Asfix Alfa is an environmentally friendly adhesion agent used in mineral-asphalt mixtures, effectively improving the adhesion of asphalt to aggregate.As the first adhesion agent for mineral-asphalt mixtures in Poland, Asfix Alfa received a National Technical Assessment (NTA) No. IBDiM-KOT-2021/0697 edition 3 required for construction products. Our product also has a National Certificate of Conformity for Factory Production Control No. 202-UWB-616. Asfix Alfa is a fully safe and non-toxic agent for workers and the environment. It does not cause corrosion or other damage to equipment or machinery used in the process of combining mineral and asphalt mixtures with Asfix Alfa.

The agent comes in the form of an oily liquid that almost immediately mixes and blends with asphalt. The mixture with Asfix Alpha shows high resistance to water.
An important active ingredient of Asfix Alpha is natural oleins, thanks to which our agent does not emit an irritating, harmful odor making Asfix Alpha friendly to workers and, consequently, to the environment and to us, ordinary road users.
Thanks to the unique formula of Asfix Alpha, the mixture with its addition does not adhere to cargo boxes during transport, and thus there is no need to spray them with additional preparations. The mineral-asphalt mixture with the addition of our adhesion agent becomes a substance with an even, homogeneous and compact structure. The use of Asfix Alpha guarantees no exudation of binder from the mixture during the rolling process.
The addition of our adhesion agent markedly increases the workability of the mineral-asphalt mixture (MMA). When laid and built into the pavement, the MMA does not stick to the paving equipment.
Asfix Alfa has properties that refresh aged asphalt. The addition of our agent to the production of mineral-asphalt mixtures using asphalt granules guarantees good fusion of the old binder with the new one. The strong bonding of the old binder with the new one significantly improves the ITSR index, i.e. the water and frost resistance index.
Our agent regenerates asphalt, restoring its aged film, the so-called oil phase. Deprived of the Asfix Alpha additive, asphalt loses this desirable characteristic in processes associated with thermal and mechanical processing.
WMA is a technology that involves, among other things, lowering the production temperature. It is an economical and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional technology. The use of Asfix Alfa in WMA technology contributes to shortening the bond time between asphalt and aggregate. Asfix Alfa improves the workability of the mixtures. It makes it possible to achieve adequate compaction of mineral and asphalt mixtures at much lower temperatures than in traditional technologies.
We remain at your disposal during the entire production and installation process. We provide both technical and material advice.
Asfix Alfa agent is a universal adhesion additive for all types of mineral-asphalt mixtures, both in traditional technology (hot) and in alternative technologies, such as WMA, (so-called warm technology). Asfix Alfa is used in mixtures produced with ordinary and modified road asphalts. It is a product developed based on many years of experience in the design of mineral and asphalt mixtures.
The agent has been successfully used on the market for several years as an additive to asphalt in mineral-asphalt mixtures, such as: asphalt concrete (AC), SMA mixtures, porous asphalt (PA). It is also used as a component of mineral-asphalt mixtures using recycled asphalt granules (asphalt waste) from asphalt pavements. Such use of the adhesion agent refreshes the recycled asphalt. The use of Asfix Alfa shows a significant improvement in the adhesion of asphalt to aggregate with varying degrees of dust. Asfix Alfa is very effective as an asphalt fluxing agent ( FLUX).
Adding Asfix Alpha to asphalt generates significantly better water resistance. Comprehensive testing and analysis positively evaluated all the thermostability results obtained, confirmed by the National Technical Assessment(NTA) received.
Asfix Alfa has the consistency of a liquid, light yellow in color. The primary active ingredients in Asfix Alfa are natural oleins. It mixes easily with asphalt, its flash point is > 210°C, while its viscosity at 30°C assumes a value of about <0.09 Pas.
Flash point | > 210 °C
Density at 15°C | 0.87 to 0.97 g/cm3
Acid number | <1 mg/g KOH
Total base number | < 2.5 mg/g KOH
Melting point | -6 °C
Asfix Alfa adhesion agent has the aforementioned National Technical Assessment issued by the Road and Bridge Research Institute. The Safety Data Sheet of the agent is also available for those interested.
Order Asfix Alpha conveniently through the form on our website or by phone.
With your first order, you can get a BONUS in the form of a complete type test for the selected mineral and asphalt mixture.
We deliver Asfix Alpha to the factory in-house. Delivery is already included in the product price.
The liquid agent is easily dispensed and immediately mixes with the asphalt without heating.
By using Asfix Alpha, it is possible to reduce the temperature of MMA production and reduce the odor that is a nuisance to workers. The benefits of using our agent are direct: reducing production costs (saving energy for heating) and protecting human and environmental health.
When transporting the produced mixture with Asfix Alfa, there is no need to spray the vehicle’s cargo boxes with any additional chemical. The mixture with Asfix Alfa does not stick to the surface of the crates due to its properties.
Mixes with Asfix Alpha are characterized by ease of paving and lack of offensive odor both at the mix production stage and the paving process.
The mineral and asphalt mixture created with Asfix Alpha is resistant to water and other atmospheric agents, which ensures that the pavement will last for years.
We appreciate long-term cooperation, and provide attractive pricing solutions for returning customers.
Since we have been using AsfixAlfa, this product has become our number one choice - including for our future projects. Thank you for the successful cooperation with the highest quality standards and substantive support at every step. I highly recommend it!Andrzej Nowakowski
