What Is Asphalt Emulsion?
Asphalt emulsion is a type of liquid cement that is combined with water and an emulsifying agent. The emulsion agent keeps the asphalt molecules together, which greatly improves the asphalt’s binding properties. Emulsions are an environmentally safe, energy-efficient, and cost-effective way to do asphalt repair. Asphalt additives promote pavement flexibility, improve binding properties, and can travel easily without separating.

How is asphalt emulsion applied?
Asphalt emulsion sealers are most commonly applied by spraying the mixture onto the surface directly with either a handheld sprayer or a distributor truck. It is important to note that the application of your asphalt emulsion can depend on its intended purpose, so the application process may vary.
What are the different types of asphalt emulsion?
There are various types of asphalt emulsions, and they differ based on the viscosity as well as the speed at which they break, which refers to how quickly water evaporates from the mixture during drying. Some notable asphalt emulsion sealers include:
- Rapid setting
- Medium setting
- Slow setting
What are the benefits of using asphalt emulsion sealers?
There are several key benefits to utilizing asphalt emulsion sealers for your project, with some including:
- Protection from outside moisture, oxidation, and UV rays
- Resistance to harsh chemicals and oil
- An aesthetic, smooth surface that is easy to clean
- Enhanced skid resistance for increased traction
- A cost-effective solution compared to other sealants
How long does it take for asphalt emulsion to cure?
The speed at which asphalt emulsion sealer cures or “breaks” can vary depending on the type of asphalt emulsion you are using, as well as the external environmental conditions. With that in mind, it can take around 24 hours for asphalt emulsions to dry in hot, dry weather, and anywhere from 2 to 7 days to dry in cool, damp conditions.
Are there environmental benefits to using asphalt emulsion sealers?
Yes, asphalt emulsion can be considered environmentally friendly because it requires lower energy consumption to produce compared to traditional hot-mix asphalt. The material’s lower application temperatures can also contribute to reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
