Bituclair® is a petroleum-based synthetic binder that may be used to produce coloured paving materials. A wide range of colours and shades are available, making Bituclair-based paving materials an invaluable contributor to comfort, safety and urban development.


The range of colours available for Bituclair® based paving materials can provide clear marking of areas for different uses such as bus lanes, pedestrian crossings, bike paths and, as such, reduce conflicts.

Environmentally Sound

Bituclair® based paving materials may be produced in light colour tones to reduce surface heat absorption or to decrease lighting requirements in urban areas and tunnels. The use of Bituclair® based products can contribute to gaining LEED certification points.


Bituclair® based coloured surfaces enhance the aesthetic appeal of urban areas and revitalize surrounding neighbourhood. Whether for an historic, traditional or modern look, the results will be a more charming and attractive living environment.


Bituclair® is manufactured with aggregates that comply with standards NF XP P 18-545 and NF EN 13043.

The color of the aggregates plays a preponderant role in the natural shading of the mix once the binder film has been eliminated. It is profitable for all to take advantage of this by selecting and/or mixing the aggregates to obtain additional color variations.


Honey-colored when applied in thin films, the synthetic binder Bituclair® is made with a base that does not contain asphaltene, molecules that are responsible for the black color of conventional bitumen binders. This is why it is so easy to color Bituclair®.
