REPORT OF PROJECT COMMITTEE ON FILLERS AND CUSHION COURSES FOR BRICK AND BLOCK PAVEMENTS

LABORATORY AND FIELD TESTS ARE MADE ON ASPHALT EMULSIONS FOR FILLER AND MASTIC FOR CUSHION COURSES. ITS QUALITY AS FILLER IS MEASURED BY ITS LACK OF ADHESIVENESS IN THE JOINTS; AS MASTIC BY ITS RATE OF SETTING; AS SURFACE COVERING BY ITS ADHESIVENESS AND ABILITY TO HOLD SAND, CHIPS ETC., FOR SKID-PROOFING. TESTS OF BITUMINOUS JOINT FILLERS CONTAINING ADMIXTURES OF FINE MATERIAL INTENDED FOR STIFFENING THE MIXTURE SHOW THAT THE FOREIGN MATERIAL SETTLES IN WARM WEATHER. MATERIALS THAT HAVE BEEN FOUND SUITABLE FOR SURFACE APPLICATION TO PREVENT ADHESION OF THE FILLER ARE DESCRIBED. A NEW RUBBER AND ASPHALT SOLUTION AND A BITUMINIZED CEMENT GROUT THAT HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED FOR JOINT FILLERS ARE ALSO DISCUSSED. /AUTHOR/
