PRI LOGO

Asphalt Emulsions: Anionic, Cationic, Polymer Modified, Mineral Colloid and Others
PRI provides independent third party all inclusive testing, evaluation and product certifications for asphalt emulsions worldwide.

PRI provides evaluations and assessments, product development and/or improvements of base asphalts, emulsifiers and additives (for possible use in making asphalt emulsions) using both lab and/or pilot emulsion mills.

PRI can couple the evaluation of an asphalt emulsion with the evaluation and characterization of products made with the emulsion; for example Micro Surfacing, Slurry Seals, Rejuvinators-Sealers, Tack Coats, Primers, Water and Damp Proofing, Corrosion Resistant, Protective Coatings Full Depth Reclamation, Cold in Place Recycling pavement systems, and Cold Patch Materials.

PRI routinely provides evaluations and certifications for emerging emulsion based products such as the recent Trackless Tack Coats.
