Safely replace Trichloroethylene (TCE) and Methylene Chloride for asphalt extraction with EnTron™-AE. EnTron™-AE is an n-propyl bromide (nPB) based solvent which is safer to use and more environmentally friendly then the chlorinated solvents typically used in asphalt extraction applications. Use of EnTron™-AE will use less solvent per extraction, take less time, and have shorter drying times while decreasing hazardous waste, eliminating time-consuming reporting requirements, and reduce annual solvent costs.
Care must be taken when choosing an nPB based solvent for your asphalt extraction application. Differences in purity, moisture content, non-volatile residue, and stabilizers can affect the performance. Reliance Specialty Products specifically developed and formulated EnTron™-AE to exacting standards for asphalt extraction applications. EnTron™-AE is approved for use in accordance with the following ASTM and AASHTO specifications and test methods:
EnTron™-AE n-Propyl Bromide (nPB) Solvent:
NPB is the preferred solvent of many DOTs across the country. For instance, Reliance Specialty Products is pleased to announce that EnTron™-AE has been evaluated and approved to be the exclusive stabilized n-Propyl Bromide product that is used by the Minnesota DOT for their asphalt extraction solvent applications. The final report of the Minnesota DOT Selection of an Alternative Asphalt Extraction Solvent determined that:
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.
EnTron™-AE is available in 1, 5, and 55 gallon containers. EnTron™-AE is a stock item and can ship the same day as ordered. Contact us today for more information.
