EP60 Emulsion Tack Coat

Bitumen Emulsion Bond Coats.

Pavements are stressed/distorted each time a heavy vehicle passes over the structure. It is essential that pavement layers are bonded together, so that a solid, monolithic structure is formed, resulting in improved pavement life. Bonded structures show 3.8 times the lifespan of un-bonded structures.

Conventional bond coats based on bitumen cutback or emulsion generally have extended drying times of between 24 and 48 hours and must be protected from site traffic if pick up of the bond coat onto wheels is to be avoided. This slows down paving operations and restricts construction traffic.

EP have developed fast setting Bitumen Emulsion Bond Coats to improve the efficiency of asphalt operations, whilst at the same time offering high strength, thermo-adhesive bonding of asphalt layers.

Advantages
Extra Performance bonding of Polymer Modified and thin surfacing layers.
Advantages
Extra Performance bonding of highly stressed pavement layers.
Advantages
EP bond coats produce high strength adhesive layers.
Advantages
EP bond coats, based on hard grade bitumen, can be trafficked usually within 1 hour, with no pick up of the bond coat.
Advantages
Controlled setting times.
Advantages
Safe in use.
Standards
Polymer Modifed Emulsions to EN 13808
Cationic Emulsified Asphalt to AASHTO M208
