The material features and benefits include
- Up to 92% recycled products
- Supplied and installed cold
- Safer to install
- Can be stored in a location without the problems of reduction in temperature
- Can be held on stock for up to one month
- A single layer can replace multiple layers of base and binder
Foamix can be applied directly onto the subgrade layer (ie: Type 1) generating additional time/cost efficiencies. Manufactured Foamix can be immediately placed and compacted on site or it can be stockpiled for later use, extending working times ensuring continued supply.

Why choose Foamix
Reduced Carbon Footprint
Foamix asphalt requires less energy to manufacture than conventional asphalt, giving a lower carbon footprint. Foamix average saving over Hot Mix Asphalt across constituent parts >30% approx. Typically delivers c.45% carbon reduction to our client.
Manufactured cold, Foamix asphalt significantly reduces nuisance fuming, odour and steam on site; material burn risks are eliminated, visibility is improved and operatives benefit from improved working conditions overall.
Foamix layers are not prone to cracking as a result of ageing; it brings greater bonding properties due to the RAP % used.
Foamix is currently compliant with Specification for Highways Works Clause 948 Ex Situ Cold Recycled Bound Materials and BS 9228:2021.
Laid cold, Foamix can be trafficked immediately enabling earlier reopening of carriageways to the travelling public, resulting in less traffic disruption and reduced build cost, making the most of taxpayers money..
