Liven up landscapes with Bituchem's Colourtex Surface

Hard landscaping specialists, The Bituchem Group has created a colourful and decorative surfacing material to brighten up any project or landscaping scheme.

The company has designed its Colourtex material using fully bound natural aggregates in a range of vivid colours to give the same durable qualities as standard tarmac with a long-lasting vibrant finish.

Available in red, green, blue and buff, Colourtex offers architects and specifiers the opportunity to be creative with their projects whilst still offering an extremely durable and long lasting finish. Designed to withstand pressure the material can be used for many domestic and commercial applications without losing its colour or quality and still maintains a high level of grip for pedestrians.
The decorative material is extremely versatile and can be used to liven up any landscape or area, including domestic or commercial driveways, pedestrian footpaths or school playgrounds. It can also be used to highlight designated areas within multi-use games areas, cycle paths or can enhance safety routes when contrasted against standard black or buff surfaces. This allows the application to be easily completed without needing to apply expensive markers to these areas and will reduce the overall time and cost of the project.

The colourful aggregates are bound using a clear resin binder which prevents aggregates from coming loose and over time deteriorating into large cracks or potholes, making it a particularly safe material for applications in playgrounds and games areas or other areas used by young children.

Bituchem has seen many successful applications of its Colourtex material, including the Duke of York Barracks in London which applied the material in pillar box red to its statement driveway. The material was also supplied in green and buff to the Forest of Dean School to offer a bright and colourful outdoor and sports areas for its students.

The Colourtex material is supplied hot and can be fully applied in just one application at any time throughout the year. This quick and simple application has made the material a very popular specification to enhance any project that requires a decorative or multi-functional hard landscaping surface.
