AkzoNobel at PPRS 2015

AkzoNobel to Showcase Global Asphalt Application Technology at PPRS

AkzoNobel (Stand No. 19) will showcase its comprehensive range of emulsifiers, adhesion promoters and warm mix additives for asphalt applications at the Pavement Preservation and Recycling Summit in Paris, Feb 22-25.
"We offer a unique combination of proven high quality products for all types of asphalt applications," said Sundaram Logaraj, global market manager, Asphalt Applications, AkzoNobel Surface Chemistry. "In addition, we have a highly skilled technical and development team and fully equipped research laboratories in Sweden and the United States to address customers’ needs by creating market-driven products and solutions. We also have fully equipped technical service laboratories with well-trained staff in various countries to provide timely, customized technical support based on local specifications and materials. Our sales teams and distributor network ensure global coverage at a local level."
"What’s more, while we have manufacturing locations in all parts of the world, we stock locally to deliver products on time."
Logaraj highlighted key AkzoNobel products for various asphalt applications.
  • For anionic slow set applications, the patented Redicote® E-7000 is a versatile emulsifier that gives a very good quality emulsion that is easy to handle and can function both as anionic and cationic emulsifier in many applications.
  • For cationic quick set applications, AkzoNobel offers a complete range of Redicote emulsifiers for slurry and microsurfacing. Redicote C-320 a patented emulsifier used with phosphoric acid provides quick traffic systems in cool weather conditions even with low acid bitumens.
  • For cationic rapid set applications, viscosity-building Redicote emulsifiers save bitumen costs. These proven products work with all types of bitumen.
  • For various hot mix and warm mix applications, AkzoNobel offers Wetfix® and Kling® Beta adhesion promoters and Rediset® warm mix additives with built-in active adhesion properties.
In addition, AkzoNobel will deliver a presentation on measuring the surface tackiness of modified asphalt binders and emulsion residues with a dynamic shear rheometer (DSR). The DSR test method was developed in conjunction with a customer’s research team and can be used in the formulation of low-tracking tack coats.
"The development of the DSR test method is representative of the research, laboratories and technical support we provide for our customers worldwide," said Christine Gorsuch, research chemist, AkzoNobel Surface Chemistry.
