TruLo® Lo Odor Asphalt

The sweet smell of innovation

trulo-lo-odor.jpg TruLo® Lo Odor asphalt takes much of the annoying odor out of every hot asphalt job. Our patented technology is specifically formulated to neutralize asphalt odor without impacting asphalt performance. The result: 50% odor reduction compared to Trumbull® standard asphalt. What's more, testing shows TruLo® Lo Odor asphalt is significantly more effective at reducing odor-causing compounds than leading competitive low-odor asphalts and additives.
That's key since odor sometimes leads to costly night and weekend scheduling. With TruLo® Lo Odor asphalt, you can avoid the problem. TruLo® Lo Odor asphalt can be used at even the most odor-sensitive sites, such as schools, restaurants and hospitals. And because TruLo® Lo Odor follows the same kettle processing as standard asphalt, there is no messy, dangerous mixing of additives - so it works effectively to control odor both on the roof and at the kettle.
