Foamix® and Foamix Ecotm

Foamix logo with the sub text "Low Carbon Recycled Asphalt"

Foamix is a sustainable asphalt solution, distinguished by its utilisation of foamed asphalt in pavement construction. This innovative product is characterised by a high content of recycled asphalt, contributing to a significantly reduced carbon footprint during manufacturing. Foamix is designed to incorporate up to 92% recycled materials, ensuring a high level of environmental responsibility in its production and application.

Foamix Eco Logo with the sub text "Carbon Neutral Asphalt"

Foamix Eco represents an evolution within the Foamix cold-lay asphalt solution, achieving carbon neutrality through the integration of carbon negative aggregates and biogenic binders. Using mobile plant on-site recycling, Foamix Eco reduces the associated vehicle movements and therefore the associated carbon footprint. Providing a truly sustainable approach to pavement solutions. This development is a testament to extensive research and collaboration across the supply chain, marking a significant step towards achieving net zero ambitions in infrastructure construction.

Sustainability Benefits

Both solutions are helping drive a sustainable, circular future. Foamix incorporates up to 92% recycled materials. Foamix Eco has an unique product mix, delivering a carbon neutral solution.

Safety & Efficiency

Foamix’s cold manufacturing process eliminates fumes and burn risks, improving on-site safety and operational efficiency. Utilising mobile plant capabilities and on-site recycling, vehicle movements are dramatically reduced together with the associated carbon emissions.

Managing risk

Foamix and Foamix Eco encapsulates hazardous tar-bound planings from site, making them safe to re-use, avoiding specialist disposal charges.



Choosing Foamix asphalt offers a practical and sustainable solution for modern construction needs, aligning with the growing emphasis on environmental responsibility and efficiency in the UK's infrastructure projects. Foamix stands out for its compliance with key industry standards, such as the Specification for Highways Works Clause 948 for Ex Situ Cold Recycled Bound Materials and BS 9228:2021, ensuring quality and reliability in every application. Its unique composition, which incorporates a high percentage of recycled asphalt pavement (RAP), contributes to its longevity, reducing the likelihood of cracking due to ageing and offering superior bonding properties.

The cold manufacturing process of Foamix not only enhances safety by significantly reducing fumes, odour, and steam on-site but also eliminates material burn risks, improving visibility and overall working conditions for operatives. This process also allows for the asphalt to be trafficked immediately after laying, minimising public disruption and optimising construction schedules for a more efficient build process that maximises the value of taxpayers' money.

Foamix's environmental benefits are equally compelling, requiring less energy to produce than traditional hot mix asphalt, which results in a lower carbon footprint. On average, Foamix offers a carbon saving of over 45% compared to conventional asphalt. The introduction of Foamix Eco takes these benefits further by employing a unique production mix and onsite recycling techniques to deliver a carbon-neutral outcome across the initial stages of the building life cycle, thereby significantly reducing the total carbon footprint of infrastructure projects.

This thoughtful combination of quality, longevity, safety, minimal public disruption, and significant carbon reduction makes Foamix an intelligent choice for those looking to meet the demands of modern infrastructure development while upholding commitments to sustainability and environmental stewardship.
