NatraTex, BituChem’s leading material, has been used to create footpaths, roads and driveways in many residential areas, including a recent development in Cholsey, Oxfordshire.
The new housing estate, launching this winter, is an exclusive development of two, three and four bedroom houses built by Linden Homes at Meadow View just one mile from Cholsey village. To complement the beautiful surroundings, BituChem’s NatraTex Cotswold was specified for the roads and pedestrian footpaths.
NatraTex 10mm Cotswold was applied to create attractive and hard-wearing new roads and pathways around the estate. The material works with the colours of the newly built houses and also provides a smooth durable surface for residents.
NatraTex Cotswold is hard-wearing and versatile and offers the same durable, high-performance qualities as traditional asphalt technology. The material has been designed to withstand the everyday use from pedestrians and light vehicles and is created using a specialist clear synthetic binder and naturally-occurring, coloured aggregates to offer a fully compact finish.
Once applied, NatraTex is virtually maintenance-free and maintains its colour for a long-lasting finish. The smooth surface is also much safer than other alternatives as it is resistant to cracks and potholes preventing any trip hazards.
NatraTex is also available in a variety of colours and finishes, including gravel and red, under the NatraTex Colour range. NatraTex is not a resin bound or bonded product, it is an asphalt surface course with similar characteristics to conventional macadam and installed at the same depth and same sub layers (base and binder course). NatraTex Cotswold is manufactured and supplied to surfacing contractors.
This results in a cost-effective and multipurpose surfacing material which is perfect for highways, footpaths, cycleways, playgrounds or domestic use.
NatraTex can be used for new construction, overlays or regeneration projects and is very environmentally friendly. It is fast and easy to install, making it a particularly popular choice for housing developments and projects with limited timescales.
BituChem has developed a NatraTex heavy duty option for areas that form a part of a main road or see increased vehicle activity and also NatraTex ColdLay, a quick repair product for use in small areas such as bollard replacements or small utility reinstatements.
