GENERAL INFORMATION Hi-Fix Cationic Bitumen Emulsion RS1

Hi Fix® emulsion RS 1 is a product manufactured out of bitumen dispersed into the water in form of fine globules(micro size) by means of an emulsifying agent. The later acts to decrease interfacial stress between the bitumen and water thus preventing their breakage during normal condition of storage. This type of emulsion carry positive charges and is very much suitable for negatively charged aggregates exclusively and abundantly available in our country. These positively charged emulsion after getting in touch with the negatively charged aggregates deposes bitumen particles on the aggregates while water gets evaporated. This emulsion with low viscosity and fast setting time is an ideal product for spray application. Hi Hi Fix® RS 1 is manufactured strictly as per IS: 8887:2004 and ASTMD : 2397 and quantity consciousness is maintained at all levels of manufacture.

  • It is applied cold thus saving energy in place of firewood or fuel oils.
  • No health hazards because of absolute pollution free, thus environmental friendly.
  • Easy and uniform spray.
  • High adhesive properties.
  • Except heavy downpour, construction in wet weather possible.

Precautions to be taken to Ensure Best Results :


  • Roll emulsion drum to and fro 5-6 times before use
  • Use emulsion at temperatures above 5 degree C.
  • PH controlled water may be added to the emulsion @1:1. If required, for better control on spraying and penetration. entire quantity of thus diluted emulsion must be used immediately for prime coat operation only.


  • Emulsion should be stored in open container/tank
  • Do not mix different type of emulsion together.
  • Do not fill loose earth in potholes before spraying emulsion
  • Do not spray emulsion on a dusty surface.
