Mastic asphalt is one of the oldest building materials and is used for all manner of different purposes in the construction industry. Its origins date right back to ancient times. Today, eco-friendly mastic asphalt flooring is considered modern yet timeless.
Used on roads and footpaths in tunnel and bridge construction, mastic asphalt is a tried-and-tested surface thanks to its resistance to frost and de-icing salt. By contrast, bitumen is a natural construction material which has long since ceased to be used in tarmac alone but has found its way into prestigious commercial properties and residential buildings in the form of BituTerrazzo®.
