Asphalt Extraction Solvent:
AeroTron™-AE

AeroTron™-AE is a modernized asphalt extraction chemistry for extractions that easily Trichloroethylene (TCE) and n-Propyl Bromide (nPB) in centrifuge extraction, shingle applications, or asphalt analyzers. AeroTron-AE is more environmentally friendly than TCE and nPB solvents typically used in asphalt extraction applications.

Use of AeroTron™-AE will have shorter drying times while decreasing hazardous waste, eliminating time-consuming reporting requirements.

And it is always in stock.

AeroTron™-AE next generation asphalt extraction solvent

Benefits over n-Propyl Bromide (nPB), Trichloroethylene (TCE) and Methylene Chloride (MC)

AeroTron™-AE Modernized Solvent Chemistry:

  • Has no flash point
  • Is easily distillable
  • Ships common carrier
  • Has a low ozone depleting and global warming potential (effectively zero)
  • Is not a Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP)
  • Is not regulated as a hazardous waste
  • You can use it the same way you have been using nPB & TCE

Asphalt Extraction:

AeroTron™-AE is fast becoming the preferred solvent of many construction, paving and asphalt/shingle testing companies across the country. It has been determined that AeroTron™-AE:

  • Can be substituted for nPB & TCE extraction solvents;
  • Uses less solvent per extraction;
  • Extractions have shorter drying times;
  • Decreases hazardous waste;
  • Eliminates time-consuming regulatory solvent reporting requirements;
  • Is compatible with Rotovap distillation systems;
  • Reduces annual solvent costs.

They have also determined that when using the same test methods, no significant statistical difference in performance is seen when using an nPB based solvent vs chlorinated solvents.
