What is an Emulsion
Asphalt Emulsion Defined What is an asphalt emulsion? Asphalt emulsion is a combination of three basic
ingredients: asphalt, water, and a small amount of an emulsifying agent. These components are introduced into a colloid mill that shears the asphalt into very small droplets. The emulsifier, a surface-active agent, keeps the asphalt droplets in a stable suspension. The result is an asphalt-based product with a consistency ranging from that of milk to that of heavy cream, which can be used in
cold processes for road construction and maintenance.
Why use Asphalt Emulsion
Asphalt emulsion does not require a petroleum solvent to make it liquid, and in most cases, asphalt emulsions can be used without additional heat. Both of these factors contribute to energy savings. Additionally, asphalt emulsions offer great flexibility in their application since they offer the end-user a great variety of characteristics not found in other paving and maintenance materials. Asphalt emulsions are environmentally friendly. There are little or no hydrocarbon emissions created with their use.
Let’s talk secure foundations. Let’s talk adhesion. eTac is a premium bond coat that is storage stable, offers reduced tracking, and provides excellent compatibility between layers, resulting in a strong, long lasting bond. Read More »

Are asphalt emulsions new?
Asphalt emulsions were first prepared in the early part of
the 20th century, and today, they are used internationally.
The use of asphalt emulsions is growing, and 10-20%
of all asphalt is used in the form of asphalt emulsions.
