In 1926 James King, the first asphalt salesman in New Jersey, along with Joseph Dosch, formed the Dosch-King Company, Inc. and entered the liquid tar and asphalt distribution field. The business grew rapidly; at the peak of the liquid business they sold over six million gallons per year.
Are Emulsions Manufactured?
Asphalt emulsions are manufactured in specialized plants. The first step is making the soap. In most cases this is done in a separate tank where the surfactant is activated by chemically reacting it in water. The ionic charge on the surfactant molecule can be positive or negative. Generally an acid is added to the surfactant to activate the cationics (positive charge) and a base to activate the anionics (negative charge). Depending upon the chemistry of the aggregate, the emulsion charge can aid the attraction and adhesion of the asphalt to the aggregate. There is also one class of emulsifiers that is nonionic and needs no activation; one end of the molecule is already soluble in water.
