In this study, asphalt emulsion was manufactured by phase inversion emulsification method with nonionic surfactants(Span 80, Span 60, Tween 80, and Tween 60), anionic surfactant(SLS) and cationic surfactant(Imidazole) in different feeding ratio to make up for the week points of asphalt. Its stabilization was carefully investigated with respect to droplet size, viscosity, zeta potential, and water-proofing property. When the surfactants mixed with nonionic and anionic surfactant were used into the asphalt, a stabilization of the asphalt emulsion was good. As the amount of the mixed surfactant was increased, the droplet size of asphalt emulsion were decreased, while the viscosity and zeta potential were increased. When the surfactants mixed with nonionic and anionic surfactant were used into the asphalt, a stabilization of asphalt emulsion was good.
