About Our Asphalt Emulsion Products
Callanan Industries maintains a number of asphalt distributor tank trucks which are specially designed in accordance with Section 407-3.01 for the application of Asphalt Emulsion or Tack Coat. Omitting Tack Coat can result in delamination, fatigue cracking, potholes, rutting and other stresses which reduce pavement life and may lead to total pavement failure.

What is Asphalt Emulsion?
An asphalt emulsion is liquid asphalt cement emulsified in water. It is composed of asphalt, water and an emulsifying agent. A thin layer of Asphalt Emulsion or Tack Coat is applied to promote adhesion between an existing pavement layer and a new layer of hot-mix.
Adequate bonding between the existing road surface and the new overlay is critical in order to assure that the completed pavement results in a system capable of withstanding traffic and environmental loads.
In New York State, tack coat material, and its application, must conform to the requirements of Section 407 of the New York State Department of Transportation Standard Specifications.
