Asphalt Durability - Pavement Interactive

In general, as an asphalt binder ages, its viscosity increases and it becomes more stiff and brittle. Age hardening is a result of a number of factors, the principal ones being (Vallerga, Monismith and Grahthem, 1957 [1] and Finn, 1967 [2] as referenced by Roberts et al., 1996 [3]): Oxidation: The reaction of oxygen with the asphalt binder.

Asphalt Road Bio-Based Rejuvenators: Functionality

Prominent asphalt chemist Dr. Gayle King refers to this as "diluting the maltene phase." 3 3 Such dilution damages the integrity of the asphalt binder, leading to accelerated pavement aging. NCAT further qualified their asphalt rejuvenator study with the following warning: For optimal restoration of the aged asphalt binder, consideration

Evaluation of the Effects of Deicers on Asphalt Binder's

Salt was first used in the United States to deice roads in 1941. Granular and solutions of deicers were the most used materials to weaken the bonding between snow and asphalt pavement from the beginning. However, these deicers have a detrimental impact on asphalt and concrete. Many pieces of research accomplished to find out the effect of deicers on concrete materials, and most of them
