Binder Content – Pavement Interactive

Asphalt binder content affects HMA mixture performance in the areas of stiffness, strength, durability, fatigue life, raveling, rutting and moisture damage. Therefore, it is important in HMA quality assurance, pavement forensic investigations and HMA research. The ignition test is the most common method used to determine HMA asphalt binder content.

» Asphalt Binder/Cement

An asphalt binder's physical properties directly describe how it will perform as a constituent in asphalt concrete (AC) pavement. Although asphalt binder penetration and viscosity grading is still commonly used worldwide, new binder tests and specifications were developed to more accurately characterize asphalt binders for use in AC pavements.

Asphalt Paving - Binder & Topcoat » Alpha Paving

The binder, which is sometimes called the base coat, is a load-bearing course consisting of aggregate and hot-mix asphalt. Because the binder must be strong, it typically contains aggregates that are approximately 0.75 inch in size. In addition to having the strength to bear the load, binder must have the ability to withstand seasonal ...

Asphalt – Pavement Interactive

Foamed asphalt. Foamed asphalt is formed by combining hot asphalt binder with small amounts of cold water. When the cold water comes in contact with the hot asphalt binder it turns to steam, which becomes trapped in tiny asphalt binder bubbles (World Highways, 2001 [3]). The result is a thin-film, high volume asphalt foam.

Importance of Asphalt Binder Properties on Rut Resistance ...

As the binder phase is responsible for the viscoelastic behavior of a mixture, it plays a dominant part in determining many of the aspects of pavement performance, such as resistance to permanent deformation. This phenomenon is more critical during the warm season of the earlier period of pavement life due to the asphalt binder lower stiffness.
