EP69 Emulsion for Surface Dressing

Polymer Modified Bitumen Emulsion
for use in Surface Dressing applications.

EP69 – Polymer Modified Bitumen Emulsion for use in Surface Dressing applications.

Surface dressing is primarily used to maintain existing asphalt roads. In Europe for example, over 500 million m2 of road surfacing is maintained annually, using this method.

The surface dressing industry has evolved and become more technically sophisticated. Originally the liquid bitumen waterproofing layer consisted of hot bitumen mixed with a petroleum solvent (bitumen cutback) but these products were both dangerous in use and had to be renewed every 5 years or less. The use of cutbacks is now prohibited in many countries.

EP69 represents the latest technology developments in Polymer Modified Emulsions.
