BUILDING BETTER ROADS:
HIGHLY MODIFIED ASPHALT (HiMA)TECHNOLOGY REDUCES OVERALL COST, LESSENS ROAD DAMAGE OVER TIME
First HiMA Trial Completed in St. Petersburg, Russia

HOUSTON, Oct. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kraton Performance Polymers, Inc. (NYSE: KRA), a leading global innovator and producer of styrenic block copolymers (SBCs), today announced the successful completion of the first road trial of highly modified asphalt (HiMA) technology in St. Petersburg, Russia, which will open to traffic in mid-2015.

HiMA is an innovative SBS (styrene-butadiene-styrene) polymer technology developed specifically for asphalt paving. The SBS polymer loading is more than twice that of ordinary modified asphalt, yet the mixes are readily workable, easy to lay in the field, extremely durable and weather resistant. Due to the typical inclement winter weather in St. Petersburg, many vehicles are outfitted with studded tires, which can quickly degrade asphalt pavements. The high polymer loading of HiMA technology makes the asphalt more like an asphalt-modified rubber, as opposed to a rubber-modified asphalt, increasing its resistance to road fatigue and deformation and extending its service lifetime.
