This invention relates to bituminous compositions and methods of producing the same. More particularly, the invention relates to the production of bituminous compositions formulated with performance-graded bitumen-containing solvent-free bitumen emulsions which exhibit controllable, temperature-dependent interfacial rheology. When employed in paving applications, these bituminous compositions develop adhesive strength and load-bearing strength properties at rates comparable to traditional hot mix paving compositions and at rates faster than traditional cold mix paving compositions.

The present description provides composite polymer compositions comprising a plastomeric material, an elastomeric material or a combination thereof, and an additive, for example, a dispersant or surface active agent (i.e., surfactant). The description also provides methods of manufacturing and using the same, e.g., to improve or modify the performance of adhesive materials, such as, for example, asphalt.

In one embodiment, an apparatus and a method of manufacturing a paperboard tray therewith is provided. In particular, a hub is configured to rotate about a shaft. On the hub, a plurality of first molds are formed in the hub. Conversely, a plurality of second molds are each disposed above each of the plurality of first molds respectively and rotate above the first molds. In this configuration, the plurality of second molds are configured to move in unison with the plurality of first molds as the hub and second molds rotate and to move orthogonally towards and then away from the first molds as the second molds rotate.

In one embodiment, an apparatus (100) and a method of manufacturing a paperboard tray (160) therewith is provided. In particular, a hub (120) is configured to rotate about a shaft (110). On the hub, a plurality of first molds (140) are formed in the hub. Conversely, a plurality of second molds (150) are each disposed above each of the plurality of first molds respectively and rotate above the first molds. In this configuration, the plurality of second molds are configured to move in unison with the plurality of first molds as the hub and second molds rotate and to move orthogonally towards and then away from the first molds as the second molds rotate.

The present invention relates to bituminous compositions suitable for use in paving applications containing water-in-oil bitumen dispersion of paving grade bitumen such as penetration-graded, viscosity-graded and/or penetration-graded varieties that is substantially free of volatile solvents and made by controlling temperature-dependent interfacial rheology through the use of selected surfactants. The invention paving compositions are suitable for use in the construction of load-bearing, high-traffic pavements at a temperature range lower than that required for conventional hot-mix bituminous paving compositions, yet with similar or superior compaction to densities property and at least equal cure rate.

A combination includes a lockable package (710) and an auxiliary clip (100). The package has an outer container (709) and a lockable receptacle (790). The package includes a two-part locking mechanism for locking the lockable receptacle within the outer container. The outer container has a first part (740) of the two-part locking mechanism whereas the lockable receptacle has a second part (795) of the two-part locking mechanism. The outer container also has a release mechanism (760) for deactivating the two-part locking mechanism for withdrawal of the lockable receptacle. The auxiliary clip has at least two legs (106, 102a) and is fittable onto the package in the region of the release mechanism for applying a force directed such that the release mechanism is activated.
