Sealcoating, Roofing and More

Although perhaps 90 percent of bitumen is used in road construction and repair, bitumen and similar binders play a role in a diverse range of non-paving applications.

These applications include:

  • Roofing
  • Adhesives
  • Caulks
  • Binders
  • Waterproof coatings
  • Corrosion protective coatings
  • Dust control
  • Sealcoating for parking areas, driveways and footpaths


These applications may involve the use of asphalt cutbacks and hot or emulsified bitumen as well. These non-paving areas may also pose many of the same challenges of adhesion, emulsion reactivity and stability that you see with other asphalt applications.

In addition to our standard range of emulsifiers and adhesion promoters used in the paving applications, Nouryon offers special products for these non-paving applications, including emulsifiers, dispersants, thickeners, and water-soluble adhesion promoters for clay containing and filled emulsions.
