ULTICOLOUR is an increasingly popular choice for education and leisure environments. Our coloured asphalts are suitable for a wide range of applications from playgrounds and multi use games areas to footpaths and parking areas.

ULTICOLOUR asphalts use a clear polymer modified binder and colour matched aggregates to produce brighter coloured asphalts. It also incorporates high quality colour matched aggregates to produce deeper colours that resist surface wear.

  • Coastal Promenade, Morecambe Bay

    As part of a project to upgrade the sea wall at Morecambe Bay, a new surface was required for the promenade. ULTICOLOUR suited the clean, modern design of the new sea wall. When combined with ULTIMAT SAMI Tarmac’s innovative stress absorbing membrane interlayer, it provided a durable crack resisting paving solution.

    An all weather multi use games area was required as part of a £25 million project to build a new three storey, 1000 pupil school in Dumbarton in the west of Scotland. This games area would be used throughout the year for sports like football and hockey, so it needed to avoid standing water after rainfall.

ULTICOLOUR is available in a range of colours that complement modern architectural designs and add to the visual appeal for clients and students.
ULTICOLOUR can be laid quickly over large areas using standard paving equipment, just like a conventional asphalt. This means that work can be completed within a short timeframe and sites reopened on schedule.
The smooth, even, monolithic surface of ULTICOLOUR avoids the trip hazard and remedial maintenance that can be experienced from movement in block paving. As a result, ULTICOLOUR offers the ideal choice for both coloured playground surfaces and coloured sports surfaces.
ULTICOLOUR is only available for installation by accredited contractors who have full access to our expert training, advice and technical support. This ensures that the client receives an excellent finish every time.
