Low viscosity asphalt emulsion composed of bitumen asphalt, water and special emulsifiers. SHOPRIME is used instead of cutback asphalt MC’s or hot road asphalt.

General Description:

Low viscosity asphalt emulsion composed of bitumen asphalt, water and special emulsifiers. SHOPRIME is used instead of cutback asphalt MC’s or hot road asphalt. 

 

Advantages:

  • Money and time saving is achieved, as no use of heating is required.
  • Less consumption in application than cutbacks.
  • Does not affect the base bitumen properties.
  • They can be used with cold as well as heated aggregates, and with aggregate that is dry or damp.

 

Uses:

  • Base pre-coating primer 
  • Waterproofing for substructure 
  • Pre-mixture of aggregates for surface treatments.

 

Application method:

  • The applied surface must be clean from oils or waste materials.
  • SHOPRIME is sprayed to the desirable surface with the appropriate apparatus. 
  • Application is not recommended in case of rainy weather.
  • Applied temperature is 20º-70ºC.
  • For best result aggregates to by lightly water sprayed prior to spraying of  Shoprime.

 

Consumption:

It depends on the sub layer properties and the nature of the aggregate materials consumption varies between 0.7 – 1.2 kg/m2.

 

Storage:

From 10 ºC to 60 ºC. In case of long period storage, advised to be thermo-insulated tanks and having  gentle stirring or recirculation.

In case of packaging the emulsion in drums, maximum storage period is one year in covered place.

 

Precautions:

Avoid skin and eye contact. In case of contact, use plenty of water and seek medical advice. Use the appropriate means of self-protection. The emulsion is not toxic. It must not be disposed to surface and still water.

 

Specifications:

 According to ASTM D-977
