    Less is more

    As budgets come under increasing pressure, SteelFlow is welcomed by councils and local authorities that strive to meet the challenge of maintaining safe and serviceable roads within the constraints of tighter budgets.

    Goes the extra mile

    With the durability, strength and skid-resistance associated with SteelPhalt products made from steel slag aggregate, SteelFlow also uses modified bitumen which gives the material greater flexibility and elasticity. SteelFlow is more economical than standard asphalt of 30mm or 40mm since it only needs to be laid at a depth of 15mm, resulting in faster installation times, reduced labor and greater surfacing areas for the same volume of product.

    Proven performance

    SteelFlow shows excellent skid resistance figures above the investigation level in SteelPhalt’s grip testing program, especially through the summer months.

    Like many of SteelPhalt’s other products, SteelFlow contains a high percentage of recycled materials at 95%.This gives SteelFlow added appeal to suppliers who wish to meet sustainability criteria

    Performance statistics

    In a recent case study, our client was looking to cover a section of highway spanning 785 meters. The plan was to use a traditional 14mm dense surface course laid at a depth of 40mm.

    We recommended that they consider using SteelFlow as an alternative solution to be laid at 15mm thick.

    By using the SteelFlow material, 59% less asphalt would be required to surface the job saving 46% on material costs

    Product Usage

    SteelFlow is easy to transport and fast and simple to lay, significantly reducing downtime for any project.

    Typical applications include single carriageways, approaches to major and minor junctions (dual and single carriageways), bends (on all types of roads) including motorway link roads and other hazards that require combined braking and cornering.

    Note: PSV values highlighted in yellow are values where SteelFlow material can be applied.

    SteelFlow lays thinner and goes much further than traditional asphalt.

    SteelFlow is a durable, thin and sustainable surfacing used in England’s northeast.

    SteelFlow is a highly durable road surfacing product that is laid very thin and has strong sustainability credentials.

    Roads refurbished with SteelFlow do not require modification of curb levels or street furniture. Local authorities find that they get more value for their money, especially in terms of square meters covered.

    SteelFlow laboratory tests.

    SteelFlow shows excellent skid resistance figures above the investigation level when evaluated with SteelPhalt’s grip testing program.

    Specimens have been subjected to a total of 100,000 wheel passes as required by the BBA, equivalent to traffic wear during 5 to 10 years in service life. In each case, SteelFlow met the requirements for the above applications, proving its credentials as a durable and effective road surfacing product.
