Emulsifiers for the manufacture of acid bitumen emulsions, adhesion promoter for anionic emulsions and for bitumen solutions.

Suggested Applications: --

Manufacture of Acid Bitumen Emulsions. (after neuttralization with hydrochloric acid or acetic acid) is highly suitable for the manufacture of Rapid Setting -acid bitumen emulsions that adhere well to all types of stone even in wet conditions. In this application acts as an emulsifier and an adhession promoter.

The amount required is about 0.2 % to 0.5 %, relative to the bitumen. Typical formulation for a 60% cationic bitumen emulsion.

Qualities required for 100 Kg emulsion:

0.3 Kg Fatty Amine TD is dissolved in stirred vessel with heating in a mixture of 37.51 water and 0.2 Kg concentrated hydrochloric acid. The pH of the solution is then checked and if necessary adjusted to 4-6 by the addition of hydrochloric acid or a small quantity of Fatty Amine- TD. The mixture is next heated to about 80-90 C and the bitumen, similarly heated and fluxed, is added. It should be noted in this connection that only high performance mixer(homogenizers) are suitable for the manufacture of cationic emulsion.

Packing: --

170 Kgs nett material packed in new M. S. Barrel.

Skin Tolerance:-

Like other free fatty amines, can cause irritation of the skin and muscous membranes, Gloves and protective goggles must therefore be worn when the product is handled. Areas of skin splashed with free amine must be rinsed with about 3% acetic acid and then washed with soap and water. Clothing contaminated with amine must bere moved. If the eyes are splashed.
