Guide to Pavement Technology Part 2: Pavement Structural Design
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 2: Pavement Structural Design provides advice for the structural design of sealed road pavements. The advice has been generally developed from the approaches followed by the Austroads member agencies. However, as it…
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…
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…
Viability of Using Recycled Plastics in Asphalt and Sprayed Sealing Applications
This report examines the viability of using recycled plastics in asphalt and sprayed seals by Australian and New Zealand road authorities. The report presents the findings of a literature review, including case studies of local and overseas road…
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 8: Pavement Construction
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 8: Pavement Construction provides advice on the general requirements for the management of quality assurance, construction planning, earthworks, subsurface drainage, unbound pavements, stabilised pavements, sprayed…
Accelerated Long-term Ageing Methods for Sprayed Sealing Binders: A Field Validation Study
This report presents the results of a field validation study conducted as part of the development of a new long term ageing test for polymer modified binders used in sprayed seals in Australia. Unaged samples of binders were collected during the…
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/…
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 4D: Stabilised Materials
The use of stabilisation technology for stabilising and recycling materials for pavement construction and maintenance is widely accepted as a cost-effective method of improving long‑term performance and reducing whole-of-life costs of modern,…
