Specification Framework for Polymer Modified Binders
This specification framework outlines the requirements for PMBs and crumb rubber modified binders for use in both sprayed sealing and asphalt applications.
Performance of Asphalt and Spray Grade PMBs in Asphalt Mixes
The Australian polymer modified binder (PMB) specification (AGPT/T190) currently requires different binder grades to be used in sprayed sealing and asphalt applications. This study compared the performance of PMBs representing four AGPT/T190 grades…
Stress Ratio of Bituminous Binders using the Dynamic Shear Rheometer
This test method sets out the procedures for the measurement of the stress ratio of binder samples under specific conditions using the dynamic shear rheometer (DSR). A major failure mode of sprayed seals and asphalt pavements is fatigue cracking of…
Long-term Ageing Resistance of Bitumen using the Pressure Ageing Vessel (PAV) and the Dynamic Shear Rheometer (DSR)
This test method sets out the procedures for the ageing treatment of bitumen samples under specific conditions using the Pressure Ageing Vessel (PAV), and also the determination of the complex viscosity of treated samples under specific conditions…
Force Ratio of Polymer Modified Binders (ARRB Extensiometer)
This test method sets out the procedures for the determination of the force ratio and toughness of bitumen and PMBs under specific conditions of deformation using the ARRB extensiometer.
Design of Bituminous Binder Blends to a Specified Viscosity Value
This test method provides a guideline for the design of a blend of RAP binder, virgin binder, and/or rejuvenating agent to a target viscosity.
Extractions of Bituminous Binder from Asphalt
This method has been developed for extracting bituminous binders from bituminous mixtures i.e. asphalt field samples, loose plant mix or reclaimed asphalt pavement.
Characterisation of the Viscosity of Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) Binder Using the Dynamic Shear Rheometer (DSR)
This test method sets out the procedure for the determination of viscosity of binders recovered from RAP source materials, as well as of virgin binders and rejuvenators. The viscosity is determined under specific conditions of oscillation loading,…
Shear Properties of Polymer Modified Binders (ARRB ELASTOMETER)
This test method sets out the procedures for the determination of consistency, consistency 6%, stiffness and elastic recovery of polymer modified binders (ARRB elastometer), under specific conditions of deformation, using the elastometer developed…
Particle Size and Properties of Crumb Rubber
This method describes a procedure for determining the particle size, shape and contaminants of crumb rubber.
