Slow Set Low Viscosity product with hard penetration residue. Typically spray applied for tack coat and fog seals in Canada. This product can be used “pure” or diluted to the desired rate.
Slow Set Low Viscosity product with a penetration typically between 100 and 250. SS-1 is one of the most common products used for Tack coat, and Fog applications. SS-1 is commonly diluted with water at the plant or on-site by the contractor to the desired ratio 50% being the most common.
Medium Set Low Viscosity. MS-1 is used in both tack coat and fog seal applications and is not required to pass the cement mixing test.
Rapid Set Low Viscosity. RS-1 is typically used in tack coat, fog seal and spray patch applications.
Cationic Slow Set Low Viscosity. Typically used in tack coat applications however it has also been used in Cold in Place Recycling applications. When used as a mixing product the addition of Portland Cement is not uncommon.
Cationic Slow Set Low Viscosity Hard Penetration. CSS-1H is typically used in tack coat, fog seal, cold in place recycling and some RAP cold mixes.
Cationic QuickSet Low Viscosity Hard Penetration Polymer modified. CQS-1HP is widely used for Microsurfacing applications across Canada and the USA. The emulsion is custom tailored to each stone that it is mixed with to ensure the desired mixing and cure properties are met.
Cationic Rapid Set Low Viscosity.
Cationic Rapid Set High Viscosity. CRS-2 is widely used for both Chip Seals and Spray patching. Manitoba and Saskatchewan have limited use of this product however it is commonly used in Alberta.
Cationic Rapid Set High Viscosity Polymer Modified. CRS-2P is widely used in Alberta for Chip Seals.
High Float 150, 150 indicates the minimum penetration of the residue. HF-150 is a very common product in Canada for Seal coating , Cold in place recycling and other mixing grade applications.
High Float 250. HF-250 is a similar product to HF-150 a softer penetration being the most notable difference between the products.
High Float 350. HF-350 currently has limited usage in Western Canada. Notable differences from HF-250 are the increased Residual Asphalt percentage (65%) and larger penetration range (250-750 dmm).
High Float – 150 Polymer Modified. HF-150P is widely used for Sealcoating and various Mixing Applications throughout Western Canada.
High Float 500 Mixing Grade. This product is only specified in certain regions and is generally used for Cold Mix Applications.
High Float 500 Mixing Grade High Residue. HF-500M-HR is widely used in Manitoba and some neighbouring provinces for Cold Mix production residue is generally greater than 89%.
Medium and Slow cure cutbacks popularity is dwindling in recent years due to environmental concerns in some regions. Products such as MC-30 and SC-250 are still being used for Prime Coat and Cold-Mix production in some regions.
