Anionic Emulsions

Anionic Emulsions

There are three major classifications of emulsion grades: rapid-setting, medium-setting, and slow-setting. The terms “rapid,” “medium,” and “slow” relate to the amount of time it takes for the emulsion to cure and the amount of mixing that can be performed before the emulsion breaks. Emulsions that allow for the longest mixing times generally take the longest to cure, while emulsions that allow for very little mixing time are those that set and cure most rapidly.

Chemical surface-active agents, serving as emulsifiers, are classified by the electrochemical charge that is attained when they dissociate in a water solution. In the case of anionic emulsions, the chemical charge is negative. The chemical type and quantity of surface-active agents used in the manufacturing process governs the process in which the resulting asphalt emulsion can be used.
