Swastik Bitumen Emulsion For Roads
Bitumen in different forms is used as a Binder in Road Construction at Ambient Temperature. Bitumen is made workable by emulsifying to form Bitumen Emulsion. Engineers all over the Country have acknowledged the necessity of emulsified Bitumen for Road Repairs/Constructions because of its reliability, economy and ease of application.
Surface Dressing and Stabilizing Coat in Road Work
As Per IS-8887
Considering various benefits associated with Bitumen Emulsions over conventional Bitumen to keep pace with the technology innovations in the Field of Road binders, our most advanced Research & Development Center at Nandesari, Baroda has developed world class formulations for Cationic Bitumen Emulsions after extensive research work.
SWASTIK Cationic Bitumen Emulsion complies with BIS Specifications IS: 8887- 1995 as well as International Specifications. Performance evaluation of test sections laid on national highways has established the efficacy of this all weather eco-friendly road binde
Bitumen Emulsions are classified in three Grades i.e. Rapid Setting, Medium Setting, & Slow Setting.
Rapid Setting (RS)
An Emulsion characterized by Rapid deposition of binder on contact with road surfaces and aggregates followed by early resistance to rain.
It is generally used for surface dressing, penetration Macadam, Tack Coat, fog seal and for quick road repair
Medium Setting (Ms)
An Emulsion in which the rate of deposition of binder is sufficiently delayed to permit mixing with certain clean coarse aggregates before breaking to form a continuous adhesive film without stripping.
It is generally used for Tack Coat, Fog Seal, Prime Coat, Slurry Seal, open graded and dense graded premix, Dust binding and for in place Soil Stabilization.
Slow Setting (Ss)
An Emulsion in which the rate of deposition of binder is sufficiently delayed to permit mixing with certain fine aggregates before breaking to form a continuous adhesive film without stripping.
It is generally used for Tack Coat, Fog Seal, Prime Coat, Slurry Seal, Open and Dense graded premises, Dust binding and for in place Soil Stabilization.
Selection Of Grade Of Bitumen Emulstion
Selection of Emulsion Grade to be used in Road Construction depends upon
