Our main products are:

  • SS 60 - Anionic Stable Grade Bitumen Emulsion (Stable 60)
  • CSS 60 - Cationic Stablemix Bitumen Emulsion (Catmix 60)

SS 60 Stable Grade is a low viscosity anionic slow set bitumen emulsion.

SS 60 is used mainly as a cold applied binder for the manufacture of slow set slurry mixtures which can be batch mixed and applied by hand or with a continuous mix and lay machine. SS 60 can also be used as an enrichment spray on aged seals or as a tack coat for asphalt overlays.

This product relies on the evaporation of the water component to cure and takes approximately 2 hours to set.

CSS 60 Stable Grade is a low viscosity cationic slow set bitumen emulsion.

CSS 60 is used mainly as a cold applied binder for the manufacture of slow set slurry mixtures which can be batch mixed and applied by hand or with a continuous mix and lay machine. CSS 60 can also be used for mixing with natural gravels or crushed aggregates for stabilisation of bases. CSS 60 can also be used as an enrichment spray on aged seals or as a tack coat for asphalt overlays.

This product relies on the evaporation of the water component to cure and takes approximately 1 hour to set.
