Bitumen emulsions

There are numerous advantages of bitumen emulsions for sustainably preserving roads: economical, durable coatings, fast installation, in situ recycling, low emmisions and reducing CO2 emissions.

More than 8 million tons of bitumen emulsions are used each year to build or maintain roads around the world.

Advantages

The emulsion technique is “universal”, justifying its use under very varied environments: it can be used everywhere, whatever the economic conditions, under all type of climate and virtually any type of traffic. It adapts well to a wide variety of materials.

Uses

Bitumen emulsions are both used for pavement maintenance and in their construction.

Techniques

There are two main families of bitumen emulsions: spraying emulsions and coating emulsions

Key Figures

IBEF collects, through its network, information related to the use of bitumen emulsions globally.
