  • COOLTAR-CE (Medium Setting)
  • COOLTAR-CE (Slow Setting-1 & Slow Setting-2)

Packing
  • In BULK and 200 Kg MS Drums.

Advantages
  • Can be used in damp-environment on wet aggregates.
  • Any Road repair work can be carried out in minimum time.
  • Provides better tack and workable conditions.
  • Compatible with all types of common Indian aggregates.
  • Can be used in any season except in excessively cold environment or during rainfall.
  • Economical as compared to bitumen with no air-pollution (No heating required).
  • Long storage stability in clean airtight container/Tank.
  • Choice of viscosity for different application.
  • Compatible with a range of Cationic Latex to produce Modified Bitumen Emulsion for use in latest resurfacing technologies.
  • Cold application of Bitumen Emulsions make them the most handy and efficient tool in road construction & maintenance. “COOLTRA-CE” is produced using 100% Indian raw-materials including special world-class emulsifiers and Bitumen.

Applications

Cationic Bitumen Emulsions are versatile products with their uses up-to 10% of total Bitumen used worldwide. In India they are recommended for a number of applications by Indian Road Congress (IRC) and Ministry of Shipping Road Transport & Highways (MSRT&H). The important areas of “COOLTAR-CE” application includes:


  • Tack Coat, Prime Coat, Seal Coat, Surface Dressing, Crack Sealing, Cold Mix Bituminous Surfacing.
  • When modified with a compatible rubber latex (e.g.: CATLAX) the Cationic Bitumen Emulsions are used in latest Pavement preservation technologies like Micro surfacing.

Method of Use

Stir the bulk stored COOLTAR-CE before use. If stored in barrels, roll the Emulsion barrels at-least 6-7 times to provide effective mixing of ingredients.Draw the required quantity and immediately reseal the storage airtight for subsequent use.For Prime Coat, clean the surface to remove dust and unbound material, moist the surface avoiding any standing water and spray COOLTAR-CE in correct quantity. Allow to cure overnight. A Slow setting Grade provides the deepest penetration of primed surface, although depth varies with the porosity of the primed layer, ambient temperature, degree of moisture, viscosity of Bitumen Emulsion, chemical nature of aggregates and quantity of Bitumen Emulsion used per Square Meter.For Tack Coat clean the surface to remove dust and debris, if the surface is hungry or excessively hot, apply a fine spray of water avoiding standing water or water run-off. Spray COOLTAR-CE in correct quantity and allow to cure.For repair work, clean the surface to remove dust and debris, apply a tack coat with a suitable grade of COOLTAR-CE and allow to cure. Mix correct quantity of emulsion with aggregates to get uniform coating, fill in the required place, Compress as required and allow curing.For Special applications / Road Constructions, use as directed by Engineer in charge.


Uses
  • Tack Coat
  • Prime Coat
  • Surface Dressing (Chip Seal)
  • Slurry Surfacing
  • Penetration Macadam
  • Fog Seal
  • Cold In-place Recycling
  • Soil Stabilization
  • Cement Curing

As per Indian Standard (IS-8887:2004), five grades of Cationic Bitumen Emulsions are available:


TYpes and Grades

Rapid Setting (RS-1) Provides rapid deposition - mainly used for Tack Coat.
Rapid Setting (RS-2) Provides rapid deposition mainly used for Tack Coat and Surface Dressing.
Medium Setting (MS) A versatile grade, Provides Comparatively slower deposition, used for Repair work/surface dressing, Plant or road mixes with coarse aggregates and Penetration macadam.
Slow Setting-1 (SS-1) Consumes long time to form bituminous film with best penetration on a porous medium, used for Prime coat, Crack sealing and Fog Seal.
Slow Setting-2 (SS-2) Low in solvents, provides slow deposition of bituminous film, used for plant or road mixes like MSS, SDBC, Slurry Seal and for Prime coat applications.
The International Standard (ASTM D 2397-05) materials in four grades with sub-grades are available (which differ prominently in their chemical and setting profiles) as:
  • Rapid Setting Sub-grade : CRS-1 & CRS-2
  • Medium Setting Sub-grade : CMS-2 & CMS-2h
  • Slow Setting Sub-grade : CSS-1 & CSS-1h
  • Quick Setting Sub-grade : CQS-1h
