    A Asphalt Institute report estimated that nearly , tons of re-refined engine oil bottoms (REOBs) go into asphalt mixtures in the United States every year. As standard practice, most asphalt binders today still meet the requirements of the performance grade (PG) specification, despite relatively small amounts of these additives. Asphalt Paving Materials. Vulcan is a leading producer of asphalt paving mixtures, consisting of construction aggregates, asphalt binder, additives and modifiers. Asphalt was first used in this country just after the Civil War. Today, it is the paving surface for approximately 94% of our paved roads and highways. Asphalt also remains a popular.

Federal Highway Administration.; Pennsylvania Transportation Institute.;] -- The objective of this study was to determine whether there have been significant changes in the properties of asphalt cement in recent years, especially since the oil embargo.

The PG grading system is based on climate, so the grade notation consists two portions: high and low pavement service temperature. The major concern for high temperature performance is rutting, which typically takes time to cumulate, therefore an average of 7 day maximum pavement temperature is used for describing the high temperature climate.

History of Asphalt Grading Systems 3 • Bowen of Barber Asphalt Co. invented penetration test in • Many modifications of No. 2 sewing needle (tip truncated) • Specified load, time, and temperature • ASTM Committee D-4 adopted penetration test () • Non-uniformity in application of penetration values by states Penetration GradingFile Size: KB.

Performance Grade Nomenclature. Superpave performance grading is reported using two numbers – the first being the average seven-day maximum pavement temperature (° C) and the second being the minimum pavement design temperature likely to be experienced (° C).Thus, a PG is intended for use where the average seven-day maximum pavement temperature is 58 ° C and the expected.

Jameson; Fingerprinting versus field performance of paving grade asphalts [microform]. In JanuaryCaltrans and the rest of California started to use the Superpave Performance Grade (PG) system for specifying neat asphalt binders.

For years, California had used the Aged Residue (AR) grading system for their asphalt binders. These AR grades are expected to be phased out rapidly. The first use of asphalt as a paving material in this country was in Newark, New Jersey, about 90 years ago.

Some six years later () additional work was done in Washington, D. After this beginning, its use as a paving material has increased steadily until today approximately 90 per cent of all paving is done with asphalt.

When it comes to asphalt, you have many choices as homeowners. There are three different grades available in asphalt. The grades available are I-2, also known as base; I-5, known as top ;and the I-4 or commercial top grades.

The difference in the tree grades are that the I-2 or base consists of ¾ inches [ ]. PERFORMANCE GRADE (PG) ASPHALT The SUPERPAVE liquid asphalt specification is based on performance rather than on empirical relationships between basic physical properties and observed performance.

Performance Graded (PG) asphalts are selected based on the climate and traffic in which the pavement will serve. Unlike all other. Description: The Asphalt Institute and PRI Asphalt Technologies have collaborated to develop this binder specification database.

Get the FACTS about asphalt pavement and how it benefits our future. 5 Types of Asphalt Pavement. January Asphalt is the most recycled, reused and versatile pavement material. It is used on 94% of the million paved roads in America. There are five different types of asphalt pavement that you might be driving over.

Softer asphalts that allow more penetration are suitable for paving in cold weather, where other asphalts may become too stiff and exhibit thermal cracking. The actual penetration grading is defined as the distance that the pin travels in millimeters multiplied by a factor of ten.

Typical values for U.S. road construction are between 60 and The paving product is recognized for its distinctive black coloring. In order to meet industry requirements, I-4 MABC is engineered in a way that guarantees uniformity in size, as well as a specific consistency and quality.

This is what ensures that the asphalt materials is accepted for use by local departments of. Successful asphalt paving projects don’t happen by accident. They are the result of careful planning and appropriate preparation.

From proper paver setup to achieving optimum mat temperature and conducting the rolling pattern at just the right time –. Niki Foster Last Modified Date: J Asphalt is most well known as a road covering more technically termed asphalt concrete, but there are a few different forms in which the substance may is a naturally occurring material present in crude oil and in natural deposits, notably around certain bodies of water and in oil sands.

a performance graded (PG) system. No longer are the tests empirical. The PG specification uses tests to measure physical properties that can be directly related to field performance by engineering principles. PG binders are tested under conditions that are similar. 4 Chart 1: Recommended Mixes for Normal HMA Applications (Proposed compaction levels based on NCHRP levels @ 4% Per Voids) Low Volume Design Level Recommended Aggregate Size Binder Type Compaction Level Compacted Thickness Surface mm PG 50 gyrations ” Base mm PG 50 gyrations 2” 19mm PG 50 gyrations 3”.

The Hubbard Field Stability Test (ASTM-D or AASHO Test ) - tests the resistance to plastic flow of fine aggregate mixtures. The Unconfined Compression Test (ASTM-DT) - measures the cohesion of paving binder and performance of the internal friction of the aggregate.

Other benefits include increased smoothness and higher contrast with pavement markings versus PCC pavements. Advancing Professional Construction and Program Management Worldwide Mix Properties Stability-Stability of a hot mix asphalt pavement is the ability to resist shoving and rutting under traffic.

The most common types of asphalt mixture are Class A, Class B, Class B Modified and Class G. Class A has the largest aggregate and the least amount of fines. It is intended for heavy road construction and is more porous after completion. Class G (or playground mix) is a mix that uses all fines.

[ ]. Well, the traditional superpave grade is on the order of PG ##-##, this means, for example. A grade of asphalt, say, PG is a mix where the 70 stands for the asphalt temp max over the next. The Symposium on Grading of Paving Asphalts by Viscosity at F Versus Penetration at 77 F was presented during the 69th Annual Meeting of the Society, in Atlantic City, N.

J., 26 June-1 July, The sympo­ sium was sponsored by Committee D-4 on Road and Paving Materials. The symposium chairman was B. Vallerga, Materials Research & De­. Types of Asphalt Pavement In addition to being smooth, durable, safe, and quiet, asphalt is the most versatile pavement material.

Pavement structures can be designed to handle any load, from passenger cars to heavy trucks. Section 6: Paving Operations Anchor: #i Introduction. Two types of paving operations are used for the construction of rigid pavement.

One is fixed-form paving, and the other is slip-form paving. Both methods have some common operations as further delineated here. In the results shown in Figure 3, Sample A showed a G*/sin δ value exceeding 1Kpa at 58ºC and so this product would qualify to become paving grade PG58 and PG Conclusion.

The grade of asphalts can be accurately quantified using a Bohlin CVO rheometer with an ADS immersion jacket, or with a Bohlin DSR rheometer. Measurement Conditions.FIELD PERFORMANCE OF RUBBER-MODIFIED ASPHALT PAVING MATERIALS.

Six types of paving systems containing ground tire rubber are evaluated. Asphalt-rubber seal coats and interlayers are the construction applications in which most ground rubber has been used, and, therefore, most of the results of this study relate to these two paving processes.
