Effect of Liquid Anti-stripping Agents on Moisture Sensitivity of Crumb Rubber Modified Asphalt Binders and Mixtures

Influence of three liquid anti-stripping agents (ASAs) (named as M1, T9 and LOF-6500) with three dosages (0.25%, 0.50%, and 0.75%) on laboratory performance of crumb rubber modified asphalt (CRMA) mixture was investigated. The performance included aggregate–CRMA binder adhesion bond, water stability, high-temperature stability and low-temperature anti-cracking property, which were evaluated by surface free energy (SFE), freeze-thaw indirect tensile strength (ITS), Marshall stability and low-temperature ITS tests, respectively. The results manifest that the addition of ASAs can improve effectively the adhesion bond between aggregate and CRMA binder under dry or wet condition. Compared with three ASAs, the CRMA containing LOF-6500 has the highest wet adhesion energy. With regard to M1 and LOF-6500, the CRMA incorporating 0.75% dosage shows the highest dry and wet adhesion energy. Additionally, the water resistance and high-temperature stability of CRMA mixture are improved obviously by incorporating ASAs despite of the types and dosages. However, the ASAs can lower the low-temperature anti-cracking property of CRMA mixture in certain degree, and the influence of T9 is less than that of M1 or LOF-6500.
