Bitumen applications

multi-functional filler TECHNOCEL®


Cellulose fibres are used in various bituminous applications.

Applications range from medium-viscous spray- and paintable masses to roof coverings, bituminous grouting masses, expansion tapes to sound-dampening sheets. TECHNOCEL® fibres act as a multi-functional filler that improves the processing properties and increases thermal stability of the final bitumen mix and furthermore act as a crack inhibitor.

The end product is stabilised using the thickening effect of TECHNOCEL® fibres. Manufacturers around the world have been able to successfully replace the health-hazardous asbestos by using TECHNOCEL® cellulose fibres.

Technical characteristics of TECHNOCEL®:

  • structural viscosity by formation of a fibre network
  • reinforcing 3D fibre network in the final mix
  • chemically inert and 100% biodegradable
  • no REACH and SVHC declaration required
