(MULBERRY, FLORIDA) —Road Science, a division of ArrMaz, is announcing their most recent product launch of ArrTekk 860. This emulsifier is extraordinarily dynamic, easily making both cationic and anionic slow-setting emulsions for applications such as tack coat, fog seal, slurry seal, central plant recycling and mixing-grade CIR and FDR recycling. Yielding smaller emulsion particle size characteristics, enhanced stability and greater durability, ArrTekk 860 is a superior solution for quicker traffic return to roadways and improved short and long-term product performance.
Ivann Harnish, Emulsifier Products Business Manager at Road Science, states, “ArrTekk 860 is much more versatile than competing products. It offers smaller particle size, so tack and other emulsions manufactured with ArrTekk 860 remain stable longer, even if they are over-pumped or stored for a lengthy amount of time.”
The new ArrTekk 860 is compatible with most types of asphalt and polymer modifiers, and offers emulsions that easily mix, coat and adhere to damp and/or dusty aggregates, granular materials and recycled asphalt pavement (RAP). The constructability aspects of this emulsifier solution allow for easy pick up, lay-down and compaction of RAP with CIR machinery equipment.
“ArrTekk 860 works incredibly well in recycling applications,” Harnish adds. “It creates emulsions that effortlessly coat RAP and granular materials and won’t break prematurely. Once the emulsion does break and begins curing, the roadway develops strength faster than alternative products. That means quicker return of traffic and less ravel. In short, ArrTekk 860 makes recycling construction easy.”
Following the recent launch of ArrMuls® 1315, ArrTekk 860 is another of Road Science’s recent innovative solutions to help meet the needs of the asphalt industry. The experts at Road Science and ArrMaz are dedicated to providing advanced solutions that offer significant performance value, backed by responsive and dependable support.
Road Science is not done offering new advancements for their customer partners in the pavement industry. Look for additional product launches in the near future.
