REVIEW OF DATA ON BITUMINOUS COATINGS AND RELATION OF TEMPERATURE TO CURING METHODS

IN GENERAL, SATISFACTORY STRENGTH AND SURFACE TEXTURE WERE OBTAINED BY CURING WITH BITUMINOUS COATINGS; MEASURE- MENTS OF TEMPERATURE AND VOLUME CHANGES IN THE SLABS SHOWED THAT THESE COATINGS AS USED, CAUSED GREATER TOTAL TEMPERATURE CHANGES AND GREATER DAILY VARIATIONS IN VOLUME THAN OTHER CURING METHODS UNDER SIMILAR CONDITIONS. TRANSVERSE CRACKS WERE IN GENERAL MORE NUMEROUS IN PAVEMENTS CURED WITH BITUMINOUS COATINGS. THE USE OF LIGHT COLORED APPLICATIONS SUBSTANTIALLY DECREASED THE TOTAL DAILY TEMPERATURE CHANGES AND MADE IT POSSIBLE TO AVOID THE BAD EFFECTS DUE TO THE BLACK COLOR OF BITUMINOUS COATINGS USED AS CURING AGENTS.
