21 Mar rss print

Puma Bitumen is excited to announce a further development in its relationship with innovation and technology partner, Eiffage Infrastructures.

Having formally committed to a strategic technical alliance last year our two companies have executed an agreement for the first specific product launch into the Australian market.

During a visit to Eiffage’s laboratories in Lyon France, Tim Gander, National Bitumen Manager for Puma Bitumen in Australia and Hervé Dumont, Technical Manager – Road Department at Eiffage formalised an agreement allowing Puma Bitumen to introduce the Eiffage proprietary GB5® product into the Australian market.

The award-winning and patented GB5® is a specialty asphalt mixture that provides superior performance to alternatives with a thinner course. The product utilises an aggregate optimisation method to maximise aggregate contact and minimise interstitial space between aggregate particles, combined with the use of special bituminous binders.

Our two companies will work together over the coming months with one of our major contracting customers to deliver the first trial of GB5® in Australia, with a target of first construction occurring before the end of 2018.

This will re-establish Puma as the technology leader in the Australian Market and deliver on one of our key strategic pillars in positioning Puma Bitumen as the premium supplier in Australia.
