Tack buckets are the perfect solution for small paving jobs that do not require distributor trucks. Recent demand for these buckets over the last year has led Hammaker East and Russell Standard to develop a premium, water-based tack coat, tack bucket called Asphalt Binder: Asphalt Emulsion Tack Coat. Ideal for asphalt patching and paving, Asphalt Binder is specially formulated for buckets because of the anionic slow-set emulsion (SS-1H) that incorporates hard pen asphalt. This results in a stable binder material (as opposed to other materials such as the cationic material) with a shelf life of a year or more, unopened.
From a performance standpoint, Asphalt Binder will setup slowly allowing for maximum laydown time and is more resistant to tracking. Each bucket measures 4.75 U.S. gallons and is sold by the bucket, by the skid (36 buckets per skid), or by the truckload (22 skids per truckload). Orders are often filled and delivered within the week. To learn more or obtain a quote, contact your Hammaker East sales representative.
