Downer Tonerseal

TOP 3 Benefits: Health & Ecotoxicity Durability Reduced waste generation

Downer Tonerseal is a high performance spray seal binder which has pioneered the use of waste items that would typically be sent to landfill. It is a blend of bitumen, recycled tyre rubber and toner from recycled printer cartridges. Tonerseal is developed through collaboration between Downer EDI and Close the Loop (CtL), an Australian resource recovery and recycling company. Downer Tonerseal performs better that the current best practice for recycled spray seals which use between 15% to 18% crumb rubber. The innovative spray seal binder exceeds 20% recycled content and also complies with Austroads S45R grade spray seal binder. Downer is also currently trialling the construction of road using soft plastics from approximately 200000 plastic bags and packaging, and glass from approximately 63000 glass bottles equivalent diverted from landfills.
