The Slovenian Asphalt Pavement Association (ZAS) has joined the initiative given by the Spanish Association of Manufacturers of Asphalt Mixture and by European asphalt mixture manufacturers to launch an International Road Maintenance Day in 2018.
The initiative is to celebrate the International Road Maintenance Day on the first Thursday of April every year.
The slogan of IRMD 2018:
»Maintaining roads is protecting the environment«
An increase in the asphalting activities dictates the need for an efficient, top-quality production as well as the execution of works.
In March, we successfully organised the traditional regional training of the asphalt operational staff, which is to be followed by other activities.
ZAS will devote the International Road Maintenance Day to further enhancement of ZAS members' training. Therefore we would like to invite you to join us on Thursday, 5 April 2018, in Gornja Radgona in Slovenia where, as part of the MEGRA fair, a discussion will be held on the topic of high-quality asphalt layers instalment, with emphasis on the constancy of temperature and evenness of the surface.
The training is intended for the Slovenian Infrastructure Agency (DRSI), Motorway Company in the Republic of Slovenia (DARS), and representatives of companies who are members of ZAS. Furthermore, experts from asphalt companies who have the ambition to provide the best quality asphalt services are also invited.

Practical part (MEGRA fair facility plateau)
12.30 - 14.00:
• A demonstration of laying asphalt by the use of modern technologies
A constant temperature of the asphalt mixture is essential when laying asphalt. The road scan enables contactless measuring of the asphalt temperature.
The 3D steering system of the asphalt finisher allows additional levelling/digitalisation of the asphalt mixture laying process by using laser.
The Big MultiPlex Ski was developed following the requirements for greater accuracy in the laying of asphalt mixture.
