(MULBERRY, FLORIDA) Road Science, a division of ArrMaz, introduces ArrTekk 1295 as the latest addition to its line of asphalt emulsifiers. The new formula creates cationic emulsions for micro-surfacing, a preventative maintenance application that provides an aesthetically pleasing, skid-resistant surface to restore pavement profile and seal the underlying pavement. This protects the pavement from further deterioration and extends the life cycle of your road.
“You want your roads to last and micro-surfacing is what protects them against wear and tear,” states Ivann Harnish, Emulsifier Products Business Manager. “ArrTekk 1295 provides micro-surfacing that’s even more durable than other available options and much easier to apply in extremely hot and cool conditions. This allows you to get your roads back in use, much faster.”
Going beyond meeting typical specifications – including the International Slurry Surfacing Association’s (ISSA) A143: Recommended Performance Guideline For Micro-Surfacing – the unique ArrTekk 1295 chemistry offers significant performance advantages:
(1.) The strong adhesion properties result in less early construction and long-term raveling or aggregate loss. Comparative testing versus two market-leading chemistries show ArrTekk 1295 consistently averages 30 to 70 percent less aggregate loss in 6-day Wet-Track Abrasion (WTAT) testing, the industry’s primary test for predicting micro-surfacing life cycle duration and long term durability. Field testing in Kansas and Florida confirmed these results.
(2.) Additionally, the chemistry allows for 20 to 150 percent more mixing time with hot pavement and hot aggregate, allowing for paving in hot conditions without struggle. Easy control of chemical break allows for fast traffic return times when paving in cooler conditions and at night.
ArrTekk 1295 is compatible with all asphalt types, including paraffin-rich and SBS-modified, as well as polymer modifiers like SBR and natural latexes. It can be formulated to perform with both reactive and unreactive aggregates of various types, including granite, diabase, basalt, chert, limestone and sandstone.
As their latest product, ArrTekk 1295 is one more way Road Science is providing the paving industry with high-performance solutions to improve the quality of roads for people worldwide. Road Science will continue to focus on its research and development efforts, and advance its products to exceed industry expectations.
(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.
(MULBERRY, FLORIDA) Road Science, a division of ArrMaz, is pleased to announce the launch of ArrMuls 1315 to the asphalt market. ArrMuls 1315 is an anionic slow-setting emulsifier that allows customers to produce emulsions with outstanding stability and pave roads faster and more efficiently.
ArrMuls 1315 is designed for multiple end-use applications, including tack coat, fog seal, pavement sealer, mixing-grade and industrial coatings. It’s best-in-class in producing dilute and non-dilute emulsions that remain stable during extended storage and after repeated pumping cycles.
“ArrMuls 1315 is new technology for customers who need an emulsifier chemistry that yields emulsions that not only remain stable during extended storage, but break and dry faster than the leading product,” states Ivann Harnish, Emulsifier Products Business Manager.
The new ArrMuls 1315 offers efficiency by being 70% active, requiring significantly lower dosage requirements and reducing freight expenses. The formula is also non-lignin based, which protects against biological growth that can result in emulsion foul odor issues. This new anionic emulsifier is compatible with most asphalt types, dry and wet compounding additives and most types of aggregate and granular materials.
Road Science is committed to innovative solution development that provides the global paving industry valuable performance advantages backed by responsive and dependable customer support. In fulfillment of this commitment, Road Science continues to make strides that serve the need for innovation in the markets they serve.
Road Science isn’t stopping with ArrMuls 1315. The company has additional new product announcements in the near future. Details for the next launch in their line of asphalt emulsifiers will be coming soon.
