Emulsions will be implemented at low temperature and will stick to aggregates.
An important goal will be to use the emulsion as substitutes for hot-mix asphalt forenvironmental impacts:
- On site production: Save energy during transport, storage, manufacturing and application stages
- On-site recycling: Small quantities of aggregates and binding agent, ambiant temperature, maintenance saving – approximately 70 %. (no need to heat the aggregates, preserving natural resources, generates less dust on the site, etc…)
- Increase fi nite life span
- Improvement of working conditions and health
Ultimately, this technology has been proving as “effective and green” alternatives and offers potential cost savings of 25% compared with a hot-mix asphalt application.
