New flexible base stabilisation which can improve surfacing performance

An Australian developed 'Dry Powdered Polymer' (DPP) pavement binder has found wide acceptance within the road industry in recent years. DPP stabilised pavements offer a flexible pavement that does not generate micro or macro cracking therefore complimenting bituminous surfacing and asphaltic concrete overlays. Using standard pavement condition assessments, DPP stabilised pavements have shown to perform without pavement misshape, failure or maintenance expenditure in a variety of climatic conditions (-5 degrees Celcius to +45 degrees Celcius ambient). This paper documents much of the hundreds of kilometres of roadway constructed using DPPs and presents the benefits and guidelines for their use and application within pavement structures.
