Il Sole 24 Ore publishes an article on the supermodifier Gipave

Il Sole 24 Ore dedicated an article to the experimentation of the graphene-based supermodifier Gipave carried out in collaboration with the Metropolitan City of Milan.

The project for the creation of the graphene additive Gipave, financed by a tender from the Lombardy Region (POR FESR 2014-2020/innovation and competitiveness), was developed with the collaboration of G.Eco (A2A Group), the University of Studies by Milan Bicocca and Directa Plus. The product was tested for the first time in September 2018 on one kilometer of the Strada Provinciale Ardeatina in Rome.

In September 2019, a second trial of the technology involved a section of the SP35 Milan-Meda and involved the resurfacing of the three layers of the pavement (base, binder and wear). The objective is to confirm also in Milan the results already obtained in the laboratory and on the road which demonstrate an increase in the life of pavements by 250%, with a consequent reduction in the costs of ordinary and extraordinary maintenance.

In October a second trial section will take place on a stretch of the SP40 Lacchiarella.
