Polymer Modified Asphalt Emulsion

SBR LATEX POLYMERS FOR MODIFICATION OF ASPHALT EMULSIONS

SBR latex polymers are ideally suited for use as polymer modifiers for asphalt emulsion since they are also water-based emulsions. These polymer emulsions are available in anionic or cationic compatible forms with variations of each type available for improvements in properties such as elastic recovery, torsional recovery, toughness and tenacity, and softening point.  The liquid (water-based) form of SBR latex polymers permits customizing of the product for specific applications.

The ULTRAPAVE® SBR Latex Polymer family contains two types of emulsions each with variations of latex polymers. Cationic latex polymers modify cationic emulsions, while anionic latex polymers can modify asphalt cements and anionic emulsions.

ULTRAPAVE® is easily co-milled into the emulsion as it is manufactured. Choose ULTRAPAVE® 70 Series for anionic emulsions or one of our ULTRAPAVE® cationic latexes for cationic emulsions.

A COST-EFFECTIVE WAY TO PROLONG PAVEMENT LIFE

Blend ULTRAPAVE® Latex Polymers with asphalt paving materials for longer-lasting highways and lower maintenance costs. Only small amounts of ULTRAPAVE® are required making the improvements extremely cost effective.
