Asphalt Emulsion Applications
Asphalt Emulsion

ASPHALT. . . as an emulsifier
Emulsified asphalt containing Volclay AEG, Asphalt Emulsion Grade, is used for many purposes. These include not only roadway construction, but even more importantly, adhesives to apply tiles to floors and sound proofing insulation to the inside of automobile bodies. Such emulsions are made by gelling sodium bentonite with water, then adding chemicals to thicken and prevent its re-swelling once it has dried. This thick mass is then pumped into asphalt, and the entire product is emulsified by high speed agitation.
