THERMOTEC UII construction method
Urea resin-type solar heat-blocking pavement
OverviewThe Thermotec UII construction method is solar heat-blocking pavement that inhibits the rise in temperature of the paving surface in the daytime by reflecting the near-infrared rays that make up approximately half of the solar radiation energy amount. This construction method, which serves as a heat island countermeasure, is applicable to porous asphalt paving. Applying a two-part hardening urea-type resin to the road surface helps keep the road surface temperature from rising. This material produces less odor than conventional MMA-type resin materials and is more environmentally friendly.
- On sunny summer days, this method can be expected to lower road surface temperatures by around 11°C.
- The method uses a urea-type resin, which has a high resistance to wear from the impact of tire chains used in winter.
- Odor is lower than the two-part hardening MMA-type resin generally used in solar heat-blocking pavement materials, improving peace of mind during construction in urban areas.
