Lucocell® – cellulose additives for SMA – Stone Mastic Asphalt. Due to their 3D structure, cellulose fibres maintain a comparatively high viscosity of bitumen, thus preventing its seepage and formation of asphalt mix segregation at high temperatures during storage, transport and SMA placing. At the same time they enable creation of a thicker bitumen layer around each rock particle, thus preventing oxidation, moisture penetration and lifting or cracking of the aggregate.

Lucocell® made of cellulose fibre is very safe and easy in handling. We strongly recommend to pay attention to the below mentioned aspects of use. The advantage of micro granules is the quicker distribution in the mineral mass during dry mixing. Microgranules release Lucocell® fibres easily and safely for increased efficiency and improved production quality. Lucocell® is ideal for use in automated batching.
