Asphalt EM-50-TT Trackless Tack Coat is specifically formulated for trackless tack coat applications where fast cure, non-tracking attributes and rapid dry times are necessities. The heat radiating from the new hot mix asphalt will re-liquefy the cured Clipper Ship EM-50-TT, forming a bond between the pre-existing substrate and the new hot mix courses. All recommended guidelines of storage, handling and application must be followed carefully to ensure proper stability, product integrity, and peak performance.
