Low viscosity emulsified asphalt based on road bitumen, water, resins and special emulsifiers. Bituminous emulsion SHOTACK instead of RC’s cutback asphalt or hot road asphalt.

General description:

Low viscosity emulsified asphalt based on road bitumen, water, resins and special emulsifiers. Bituminous emulsion SHOTACK instead of RC’s cutback asphalt or hot road asphalt.

 

Advantages:

  • High tacking effect leading to improved of mechanical properties of the road.
  • Money and time saving is achieved, as no/gentle use of heating is required during any state of application.
  • Less consumption in application than cutbacks.
  • Does not affect the base bitumen properties.

 

Uses:

  • Tack coats between asphalt pavement layers. 
  • Slurry – Fog Seals.

 

Application method:

  • The applied surface must be clean without oils or any waste materials. 
  • Spray to the desirable surface with the appropriate equipment.
  • Spraying temperate between 20o C -70oC.
  • Avoid excessive heating. 

 

Consumption:

Consumption depends on the sub-layer and its use: tack coats 0.4 – 0.6 kg/m2 (old sur¬faces), 0.2 – 0.4 kg/m2 (new surfaces). 

 

Storage:

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

In case of packaging the emulsion in drums the 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. Appropriate means of self-protection must be used. Non toxic. It must not be dis¬posed to surface and still water.

 

Specifications:

According to ASTM D-977
