OLEXOBIT® MAX is a polymer modified binder (PMB) that is designed for use in sprayed sealing applications to minimise the risk of reflection cracking on existing cracked surfaces where the cracks are active, or where the potential for cracking exists. OLEXOBIT® MAX is also suitable for use in severe high stress seal applications and as a holding treatment on high traffic roads.
OLEXOBIT® MAX is recommended for application in SAM seals under the following conditions:
For further advice on the appropriate application of OLEXOBIT® MAX, please contact Puma Bitumen. *Where large cracks are present and crack movement is > 0.5mm, a PMB alone will not provide a long-term solution and should be used in conjunction with a geotextile.
OLEXOBIT® MAX is manufactured to comply with Austroads AG:PT/T190 S15E grade.

The storage of bituminous binders for prolonged periods at elevated temperatures should be avoided as quality may be adversely affected. As a general rule, bituminous binders should be stored at the lowest temperature that enables practical use.
To ensure hot bitumen is used in a safe and efficient manner the following safety precautions must be followed:
For a full description of hazards associated with the use of bituminous binders, please refer to the appropriate material safety data sheet (MSDS) available on the Puma Bitumen website.
