Introduction

By using selected emulsifying agents with a suitable emulsion grade penetration bitumen it has been specifically designed for use as a hot applied surface dressing binder.

Where to use?

Premium 80 is suitable for use on higher stressed, heavier trafficked sites as a premium grade surface dressing binder as specified in the Design Guide for Road Surface Dressing, Road Note 39.

Preparation

Please refer to the Road Surface Treatment Association’s (RSTA)/ADEPT Code of Practice for Surface Dressing Part 5 – Surface Preparation.

Application

Premium 80 should be applied at a temperature of 85°C through a bulk binder distributor which has been tested for compliance with BS 1707 (hot binder distributors for surface dressing).

The surface dressing works should be in accordance with the recommendations contained in Design Guide for Road Surface Dressing, Road Note 39 and the RSTA’s Codes of Practice for Surface Dressing.

Due to high residual binder viscosity, optimum results are obtained with Premium 80 during the warmer months of May to August.

Coverage

Refer to the Design Guide for Road Surface Dressing, Road Note 39 or contact your local Colas depot or representative for further guidance.
