Slow setting and low viscosity emulsified asphalt based on road bitumen, water, resins and special emulsifiers.

General description 

Slow setting and low viscosity emulsified asphalt based on road bitumen, water, resins and special emulsifiers.

SHOSEAL is designed to coat, protect, and/or rejuvenate the existing pavement.

The addition of asphalt will also improve the waterproofing of the surface and reduce its aging susceptibility by lowering permeability to water and air. To achieve this, the SHOSEAL material (emulsion) must fill the voids in the surface of the pavement. Therefore, during its application it must have sufficiently low viscosity so as to not break before it penetrates the surface voids of the pavement and so creating slippery surface. 

The rate at which the emulsion breaks is dependent on several factors with weather conditions (e.g., wind, rain, temperature, etc.) being dominant factors.

 

Advantage:

  • Money and time saving is achieved, as no use of heating is required during any state of application.
  • Less consumption in application.
  • Does not affect the old pavement.

 

Application method:

Properly calibrated distributor trucks shall be used to apply the emulsion.

Spray nozzles with 4 to 5 mm openings are recommended. The emulsion may be heated to 50°C maximum, although, generally the emulsion is sprayed at ambient temperature. The emulsion is sprayed at a rate that is dependant on the surface conditions.

In case of road mark removing, better results occur by sand blasting old marks

 

Storage:

From 10 °C to 60 °C . In case of long period storage, advised to be thermo-insulated tanks and having stirring or re-circulation system. In case of using drums, drums should be rolled on the ground to ensure mixing.

 

Precaution:

Typical application rates for diluted emulsion (1: 1) range from 0.15 to 1.0 lt/sqm depending on the surface conditions. For tight surface the rate must be inside 0.15 to 0,5 lt/sqm, for open surface the rate should be 0.4 to 1.0 lt/sqm.

 

Specification: 

According to ASTM D-977

 

Packing:
