A highly compactable, very strong and durable asphalt, for use in very heavily loaded areas such as city centre road junctions, bus lanes and stations, ports and heavy industrial yards. Supreme is based on EME2 design principles but uses a polymer modified hard grade binder for enhanced performance.


  • Highly compactable.
  • Very high rut resistance.
  • Polymer-modified binder with softening point above 90°C.
  • Dense impermeable asphalt allowing early trafficking.


  • Bus stations, bus stops and bus lanes.
  • Lorry parks and transport depots.
  • Airfield hardstandings.
  • Channelized roads.
