Beginning in 1991 the asphalt binder systems developed and utilized by Lockheed Ecostar Corporation, now and independent line of business from Lockheed Martin Corporation, have undergone over eleven years of continuous, repetitive laboratory and field evaluations within the end productís field of use. The above tests and results have been proven using a properly manufactured BituteneTM seal coat product:  CarbonsealTM.
