Want to Know about Bitumen Emulsion?
Emulsified Bitumen usually consists of bitumen droplets suspended in water. This dispersion under normal circumstances would not take place, since everyone knows that oil and water don’t mix, but if an emulsifying agent is added to the water the asphalt will remain dispersed. Most emulsion are used for surface treatments.
The product is made by keeping the emulsion at intense degrees, yet during application it is dispersed to ambient degrees. For road construction, bitumen product is usually applied with mineral combination. This combination between the two substances permits bitumen as a binder and the mineral aggregate giving strength to the road.
At ambient degrees, as asphalt is a very adhesive material it becomes a perverse task. To deal with this and make it favourable for working condition, bitumen is mixed with petroleum solvents or emulsifying agent and water for improving its application. This blending combination ‘bitumen emulsion’ helps in road building, reconstruction and maintenance as the combination is strong and stays for long. Sanjivani Industries is the bitumen emulsion manufacturer in India and these are the grades supplied.
