Unique solutions to improve the performance of your asphalt testing process.
LASTRADA has asphalt modules specific to the needs of hot mix asphalt producers, asphalt testing laboratories, and asphalt binder producers. Industry-leading modules like asphalt mix design and emerging balanced mix design, along with the standard LASTRADA module set, allow users to create workflows to match their distinct needs. Companies can maintain the consistency of their brand and build on existing processes by using LASTRADA’s customizable reports and automation.
LASTRADA’s core asphalt testing capabilities are available to every LASTRADA user. Asphalt producers, hot mix asphalt testing laboratories, and asphalt binder producers create create unique workflows and processes by combining other LASTRADA features with core asphalt capabilities.
LASTRADA’s proprietary data structure links together aggregate data, binder data, plant settings, and additives to their asphalt productions and mix designs. Producers use LASTRADA to develop mix designs in LASTRADA’s mix design module, transfer the design to a production facility where it is converted in LASTRADA’s declaration module, and saved with production details. Balanced mix design development and management is accomplished through combining mixture performance data with binder test data and aggregate test data.
Engineering laboratories testing asphalt can fold asphalt tests and asphalt performance tests into their laboratory workflow, streamlining their laboratory management process. LASTRADA logs samples, documents and communicates work orders from customers, organizes and schedules work, creates reports for customers, and bills for completed tests. LASTRADA Partners has a library of test reports that can used as is, or modified to meet any company’s individual needs.
Asphalt binder suppliers benefit from LASTRADA’s proprietary data structure by linking together the development of a binder formulation and its production along with asphalt performance test results. Suppliers can use LASTRADA to develop the formulations in LASTRADA’s formulation module, send the formulation to a production facility where it is converted in LASTRADA’s recipe management module into production instructions. The quality control testers have the option to note which recipe was used for the asphalt binder being tested allowing producers to evaluate or compare the performance of any recipe, formulation, and production facility.
