Cutback Asphalts and Products
PRI provides a complete suite of evaluations for asphalt cutbacks for use in the paving, roofing and industrial markets.

In the paving market the cutback evaluations focus on uses such as: primers and tack coats, dust control and chip seals.

In the roofing market the prime focus is on roof repair and maintenance: coating, cements and aluminums pigmented products.

The industrial applications span water and damp proofing, corrosion resistant metal coatings and emerging technologies for sustainable buildings to provide air infiltration barriers.

A listing of the services we provide for asphalt cutbcacks is below. Other testing protocols are available; inquire if the specific test or property is not listed.
