IS :14982/2001 & MORT&H REF.MANUAL

Description:

TIKI ANTISTRIPPING AGENT is a specially formulated compound for improvement of adhesion between Bitumen & Aggregates so as to avoid stripping of Bitumen on aggregates. It strengthens the bond between Bitumen & Aggregates which will not be dislodged by water.

Recommended Uses:

TIKI ANTISTRIPPING AGENT is to be added in Bitumen before mixing with aggregates. It works even in the presence of water. ANTISTRIPPING AGENT is in liquid form and hence can be added directly to the Bitumen. It maintains its properties up to a temperature of 163°C. On the whole,the use of ANTISTRIPPING AGENT can be considered economical since it extends the life of ROADS/ PAVEMENTS.
