Finding solutions for your region
With extensive in-house product research and development facilities, Hitex International Group continuously adapts and improves its extensive range of materials and equipment to meet the demands of highway and transport networks around the world.
We have over 10 years’ experience of meeting the demands of international clients and are proud to have established a reputation for providing products that offer the highest level of durability and performance.
Hitex International Group exports material for use in a wide range of climates from arid and semi-arid, to tropical and sub-arctic. The development of our export range requires skill, experience and an in-depth understanding of the way our materials and associated components behave in diverse climate conditions and terrains.
Tailoring our formulations
Prior to a suitable formulation being developed for use, our technical specialists consult with clients to determine the precise environmental conditions where the material is to be laid. Following additional research into climate and conditions, we begin our development work, adjusting formulations to ensure the product achieves the required performance levels.
When exporting to sub-arctic regions such as northern Scandinavia, Canada and Iceland, our formulations are given added flexibility to withstand cracking in minus temperatures and resist exposure to studded tyres, road gritting and snow ploughing.
For the Middle East, Asia and Australasia, we have developed a range of UV-stable formulations that retain strength and flexibility without becoming ‘tacky’ in conditions of extreme heat and low rainfall.
Hitex International Group has also developed formulations for regions that experience both extremes of hot and cold such as very warm conditions in coastal areas with cold and freezing conditions in mountainous areas. This requires a crucial balance between a material which will soften in hot weather, and one which becomes brittle in low temperatures. Adapting material in this way requires extensive skill and experience.
Other considerations include how our material will work with pre-existing road structures, and within the different legislation and regulations of each country. To find the best solution every time, we work closely with clients to get meet element of product development without compromising on performance.
