TECHNIQUE OFFERING THE BEST QUALITY/PRICE RATIO
For more than 25 years, LES ENTREPRISES BOURGET has been using the surface treatment technique. The leader in Québec and equipped with the most advanced technology, our enterprise perfectly meets all of its customers’ requirements, whether from the municipal, industrial, commercial or other field.
Commonly known as economical paving, surface treatment is a road-surfacing method that uses crushed aggregates and asphalt emulsions. By providing a permanent solution that is much more cost-efficient and eco-friendly than asphalt, surface treatment is a very interesting alternative for surfacing rural roads, shoulders, as well as bicycle paths. With the proper preparation and adequate granular foundation, the life expectancy of surface treatment compares with that of conventional asphalt.
It can be applied in one, two or even three coats, depending of the load-bearing structures and traffic flow. In addition, in can be applied on gravel roads, existing surfacing materials, or aging asphalt pavement.
Asphalt emulsions are part of all roadworks and play an essential role in the quality and lifetime of a new pavement.
This is the reason why Entreprises Bourget created LES ÉMULSIONS BOURGET. With its highly efficient installations, cutting-edge techniques, high-production capacity, and ongoing investments in research and development, Les Émulsions Bourget offers a broad range of emulsions suited to various roadwork projects.
ISO certified, Les Émulsions Bourget holds an important place in the emulsion market and can serve customers all through the province of Quebec.
The great advantage of asphalt emulsion is that it can be used without heat. Upon contact with aggregates, the emulsion breaks, water evaporates, and there remains an instantly rigid binder
The asphalt emulsion type is chosen according to the roadwork to be done and it must comply with certain criteria as regards composition, viscosity, and rupture rate. To ensure compliance of the emulsions produced, a strict quality control is required, which includes several lab tests.
USES OF ASPHALT EMULSIONS (EXAMPLES) :
Tack coat · Soak-in coat · Surface treatment
Les Entreprises Bourget offers the Bourget Industrial Sealer for asphalt paving. This is a technique that consists in spreading a diluted cationic polymer-enriched asphalt emulsion especially formulated to act as a protective screen. We call this a preventive treatment because it reinforces and preserves the integrity of the pavement.
This binding agent, fabricated at our plant, entirely made in Quebec, is applied with standard spreading trucks, which allows a fast and efficient operation. Bourget Industrial Sealer is the adequate option for pavements with stripping problems as it cures the surface with a thin layer of asphalt, covering the surface aggregates. This is an interesting and EFFICIENT SEALING option.
