Building Safer Roads Extreme Climates Peru
- January 11, 2018 -
The road that goes from Limacpunco to Huaya, Peru, was paved using Elvaloy® RET. The road is part of the Transoceanica project, crossing Peru and helping indigenous families move goods to market. It also serves tourism and helps bring better medical care into the region. Elvaloy® RET was selected for higher-altitude sections (above 3500 m), facing aggresive weather changes from low temperatures to high temperatures year-round. Binder cold-temperature performance, storage stability, and easy handling helped convince the contractor, Odebrecht, to choose RET modifier technology.
