Spramul SS-1h, CSS-1h

Spramul SS-1h are slow-setting, anionic type of asphalt emulsions manufactured according to specifications of ASTM D977 – “Standard Specifications for Anionic Emulsified Asphalt.”

It is a dispersion of small droplets of penetration grade asphalt cement in water with the aid of an emulsifier. The size of the droplets is normally in the order of 1-20 microns, with some particles as big as 100 microns. Since these droplets are negatively charged, breaking (coalescence) is purely by evaporation of water.

R1115 Bag
Shell Bitumen R-Grades are re-blown or oxidised bitumens which are produced by passing air through soft bitumen under controlled temperature conditions. This process alters the characteristics of the bitumen to give more ‘rubbery’ properties than for penetration and hard grades. Grades are specified by their mid-softening point and mid-penetration value, prefaced by the letter R.

MC 70

Shell Cutback MC-70 is a medium curing (MC) cutback asphalt consisting of penetration grade asphalt cement and diluent or ‘cutter’ of medium volatility. The diluent temporarily reduces the viscosity of the asphalt cement for ease of handling and application. After application the diluent evaporates, leaving the asphalt cement to perform its function.

Shell Cutback MC-70 conforms to the specifications of ASTM D2027 (Medium-Curing Asphalt) or AASHTO M82.
