Webinar: Development of a Sprayed Seal Binder Cracking Test
This webinar, presented on 8 August 2019, provides an overview of an Austroads project that developed a new sprayed seal binder cracking test and compared the performance of polymer modified binders (PMBs).
Webinar: Relationships Between Cutter Oil Properties and Sprayed Seal Performance
This webinar, presented on 11 July 2019, provides an overview of an Austroads project that compared the test properties of seven commercially available cutter oils with their sprayed seal performance.
Performance of Asphalt and Spray Grade PMBs in Sprayed Seals
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 sprayed seal performance of PMBs representing four AGPT/…
Relationships Between Cutter Oil Properties and Sprayed Seal Performance
This study investigated the relationship between cutter oil properties and sprayed seal performance so that this information could be used as a basis for updating Australian Standard 3568. AS 3568 specifies the properties of four different types of…
Webinar: Bituminous Binders and Selection and Design of Sprayed Seals: Guide to Pavement Technology Parts 4F and 4K
This webinar, presented on 31 October 2018, provides an overview of the key changes to the Guide to Pavement Technology Parts 4F and 4K, and the significant advances in the areas of binder specifications and sprayed seal design.
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 4K: Selection and Design of Sprayed Seals
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 4K: Selection and Design of Sprayed Seals is a guide to the procedures for the selection and design of sprayed seals. This is an update of previous Austroads procedures based on the philosophy of filling up voids in…
Webinar: Guidelines and Specifications for Microsurfacing
This webinar, presented on 14 June 2018, provides an overview of the updated Austroads microsurfacing guidelines and model specification. It covers: major changes to the microsurfacing guidelines and specifications related test methods materials and…
Guidelines and Specifications for Microsurfacing
Guidelines and Specification for Microsurfacing provides guidelines for the use of microsurfacing treatments in Australia. Microsurfacing is presently the only type of bituminous slurry surfacing applied in Australia. The document was produced by…
Validation of Revised Austroads Sprayed Seal Design Approaches: Site Inspection

This report details investigations that were conducted to verify the new Austroads sprayed seal design guidelines.

To verify the appropriateness of the proposed basic voids factor (Vf), and the initial sealing design approach (and also to validate…

Development of a Sprayed Seal Binder Cracking Test

This report describes research into development of a laboratory sprayed seal binder cracking test which can be used to measure the relative fatigue cracking resistance of thin binder films which have thicknesses comparable to the thicknesses of the…
