This paper briefly summarizes the current status of sulphur-asphalt pavement technology with emphasis on sulphur-extended asphalts. The various processes that are currently available are discussed and compared, and the various field trials are described. Performance observations and engineering properties are also considered. Finally, the future use, applications, and problems of sulphur-asphalt are reviewed. Based on experience, the use of sulphur-asphalt mixtures can be expected to increase during the next few years. This is especially true of sulphur-extended asphalt mixtures, which have greater applicability and conserve asphalt and produce a corresponding reduction in cost. (Author)
