Abatech Provides High-Altitude Advice
In 2018 Abatech reached for the sky - providing paving advice with roads crossing the Andes in Chile. The road pavement was at 16,500 feet - the highest road we have ever worked on. This projected included the use of compaction aids in the asphalt binder (bitumen) to assist with achieving density at these high altitudes.
Abatech was formed in 1997 to provide independent consulting services and advanced technology to the asphalt, bitumen and aggregate industries. Abatech operates from locations in the USA, UK and Portugal providing services to a wide range of clients representing government, contractors, consultants, universities and various other institutions.
