POLYMER LITERATURE REVIEW. INTERIM REPORT

This report compiles a vast amount of research on polymer modified asphalt cements and mixtures. It covers a general discussion of polymer chemistry and terms typically used by polymer suppliers; asphalt cement chemistry; typical test methods historically used to evaluate modified asphalts; reported results; comparisons of polymer modified asphalt cements and mixtures; proposed binder specifications; and a summary of field trials reported in the literature. Based on this information, the report suggests several experimental designs for use in the completion of the laboratory and field trial phases of this project.
