POLYMER BITUMEN - LET US FIT OUR TEST TO TODAY'S TECHNIQUES

Since 1989, ESSO and VIAFRANCE companies have been conducting a joint research program on polymer modified bitumens. Conventional tests have been applied to these products, as well as more specific tests allowing a more detailed study of the behavior of these heterogeneous binders and of some of their complementary properties. This research program was constructed with a complete matrix of perfectly well controlled PMBs (chemical nature and content of bitumen and polymer, mixing conditions). This paper presents conclusions about these tests and some representative examples.
