QUALITY TESTS OF AN ASPHALT WITHOUT FILLER OF A SPECIAL TYPE FOR THE SEALING OF CONCRETE PAVEMENT JOINTS

ENSAYOS DE CALIDAD DE UN TIPO ESPECIAL DE ASFALTO NO FILLERIZADO, PARA EL SELLADO DE JUNTAS DO PAVIMENTOS DE HORMIGON

Experience shows that from the technical and the economical standpoint the development of optimum products to seal concrete pavement joints has not been satisfactorily solved. A great many contributions on the subject presented from 1948 to 1969 to the meetings of the Permanent Commission of Asphalt are a clear proof of this. It is not easy to find products, including asphalt mixtures, meeting fully the special standards required by seals for concrete pavement joints. A product without filler may be a better option for sealing, as it would solve the problems inherent to filler addition; a special asphalt type produced by ypf was tested in the laboratory for it use. Test results and conclusions are stated. /TRRL/
