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

TESTS ARE REMADE ON 5-YEAR OLD SAMPLES OF FILLERS AND CUSHION COURSES FOR BRICK PAVEMENTS. NEW TESTS SHOW THAT FOR MASTIC CUSHIONS, A MINIMUM OF 6% OF BITUMEN BY VOLUME SHOULD BE MIXED WITH SUITABLE SAND, NOT 7%, AS DETERMINED BY ORIGINAL TESTS. IN THE CASE OF TARS, THE STATEMENT STILL STANDS THAT 7% IS NEEDED. FOR ASPHALT EMULSIONS, THE FIVE- YEAR TESTS SHOW THAT AT LEAST 12% OF EMULSION MUST BE MIXED WITH THE SAND. /AUTHOR/
