DISSCO CSS1h – Slow Setting Emulsified Asphalt



DISSCO CSS1h Tack Coat is a cationic slow setting emulsified asphalt designed to provide superior adhesion for asphalt patches to existing asphalt pavement, brick or concrete. DISSCO Tack Coat waterproofs the edges of the patch to prevent water intrusion through the joint, and helps prevent pushing and shoving of the patching material by rolling. DISSCO Tack Coat is environmentally friendly containing no solvents. No mixing or thinning necessary. No heating required.


Surface to be tacked must be clean and dry. Remove dirt and debris by hand or mechanical sweeping or with a high volume blower to remove dirt, loose rock and vegetation.


DISSCO CSS1h Tack Coat is supplied in a concentrate form and may be used directly from the container. Applicator may choose to thin with water prior to use up to a one to one ratio to ease application and or to decrease brake time. Apply with a brush, broom, roller or spray equipment. Thin overlays should have a 8" wide band around the perimeter of the patch and apply at a rate of .10 gal/sq. yd. in the center areas. On excavated or utility patch repairs all vertical surfaces of existing pavement should be coated. Do not apply when rain is imminent or when surface to be coated or ambient air temperature is below 32ºF (0ºC).


Cure time will vary depending on weather conditions. Product will appear brown in color after applied. Do not patch material until tack coat has turned black.


DISSCO Tack Coat may be stored outdoors when ambient air temperatures are above 40ºF (4ºC). DISSCO Tack Coat is water base and will freeze. KEEP FROM FREEZING. Clean tools with water immediately after use.


Rinse tools with water immediately after use. If tack coat has dried, clean with mineral spirits or a good citrus based degreaser.
