BASF SMART PAVING SOLUTIONS


With ever-increasing populations, cities and governments face extreme pressures to ensure that infrastructure is suitably adapted and sustainable. BASF’s latest innovative technology, Elastopave®, is a polymer composite which is mixed with gravel or stones. The high proportion of stones of various sizes creates more interconnected voids that allow water to percolate more effectively, meaning greater water permeability compared to a sealed surface.


Elastopave® is not only suitable for walkways and driveways, but also for many applications where crushed stones or gravel need firm bonding, such as park surfaces, sidewalks, indoor stone carpeting and outdoor furniture. It is quick and easy to install and requires only readily available equipment. Public spaces paved with Elastopave® can absorb an estimated 4000 litres of water per hour per square metre.


BASF, together with Technical Finishes, has successfully completed a 500m² project at a local primary school, where Elastopave® was installed to transform the playground area of the school. One of the aims of the project was to inspire future leaders, showing them how chemistry benefits the community and how products like Elastopave® provide sustainable paving solutions.
