SUBSTITUTION OF EMULSIONS FOR CUTBACKS

Due largely to their lower viscosity at ambient temperatures as compared to asphalt cements, emulsions and cutbacks are almost essential for many uses such as prime and tack coats, cold mixes and for seal coats and surface treatments in other than warm weather. There are times when a choice of either may be open. Recommendations are made on storing and handling emulsions, and a table shows types of cutbacks and emulsions suggested for particular construction and maintenance operations. Emulsion is an ideal material to rubberize since latex is also an emulsion; both must carry the same charge.
