This is what better non-tracking asphalt tack coat looks like

Better is tack made of strain-tolerant, non-brittle paving-grade asphalt.
Better is keeping tack off tires and on the road where it belongs.
Better is non-tracking tack that dries quicker for 75% faster traffic return.

ArrMuls® Tack Technology
Chemistry for Non-Tracking Tack

ArrMuls Tack Technology is specially formulated to prevent tack coat from being tracked away with 75% faster traffic return, improved pavement layer bonding, and longer-lasting roads.

ArrMuls Tack Technology is an easy-to-implement chemistry kit that enables emulsion producers to make anionic non-tracking tack coat using paving-grade asphalt. The kit consists of only two interdependent components – ArrMuls Tack Part A and Tack Part B.

Asphalt tack coat made with ArrMuls chemistry can be formulated to meet typical specifications including AASHTO M-140 and ASTM D-977 for slow-setting (SS-1h) emulsion.

Improved Efficiency Icon

Improved Efficiency

  • Pave quicker with less wait time for tack to dry (tack dries within 15 minutes instead of the typical 60 minutes) for 75% faster traffic return
  • Unlike hard pen asphalt tack, uses readily available paving-grade asphalt
  • Easy to produce with longer storage shelf life in contractors’ trailers and tanks
Smarter Paving Icon

Smarter Paving

  • Increase pavement strength by keeping tack where it belongs
  • Paving-grade asphalt provides plenty of bond strength with strain tolerance, improving resistance to cracking and slippage versus hard pen asphalt tack
Money Savings Icon

Money Savings

  • Reduce contractor downtime waiting for tack to dry
  • Eliminate costs to replace traffic paint and remove tracked tack
  • Eradicate financial and safety liability of reduced friction roads caused by tracked tack, keeping drivers safe
