Breaking of Bitumen Emulsions Made Simple

Breaking emulsion aggregate

Understanding and controlling the breaking of emulsions is key to master cold pavement techniques ?

The breaking of an emulsion is the coalescence of binder droplets on the surface of the aggregates. The triggering, the kinetic nd the mecanisms of the breaking reaction need to be controlled to master the breaking behavior of emulsions and adapt them to the targeted paving applications.

The breaking behavior of emulsions depends on many parameters including the type of emulsifier, the formula of the emulsion, the nature of the aggregates, the climate conditions and many other parameters.

At VIALAB, we are experts in bitumen emulsion. Our knowledge allows us to teach and help our suppliers formulate their emulsions. Come on board and become a master in bitumen emulsions through our Training courses ?
