ULTICOLOUR coloured asphalt is available in natural and buff colours that offer an alternative to conventional surfaces, complementing hard and soft landscape designs. Natural and buff coloured asphalts offer a similar appearance to traditional loose gravel, ideal for surfacing historic sites or traditional architecture, with a far lower maintenance requirement. Bright colours including red, green and blue make popular choices for playgrounds, school and nursery environments and sports surfaces. Light and mid grey colours offer an alternative to black asphalt that suits modern architectural designs.

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.


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.
