The Transportation Association of Canada has sponsored the development of this User Guide to the Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) specification ("Asphalt Cements for Road Purposes" (CAN/CGSB-16-3-M90)) based on the best information currently available on: 1. Canadian climatic conditions; 2. sources and characteristics of asphalts used in Canada; 3. Canadian pavement performance data; 4. current provincial asphalt specifications and test procedures; 5. the likely impacts of the results of the Strategic Highway Research Program asphalt research results; and 6. use of premium and polymer modified asphalts. The User Guide is intended to be used as a supplement to the CGSB standard and contains step by step procedures with worked examples for the selection of asphalts for any paving project in Canada based on climatic conditions and anticipated traffic levels.
