FIRST WORLD CONGRESS ON SLURRY SEALS, MADRID 13-16 FEBRUARY, 1977

I CONGRESO MUNDIAL DE LECHADAS BITUMINOSAS (SLURRY SEALS). MADRID, 13-16 FEBRERO 1977

Twenty four papers were presented at this "First World Congress on Slurry Seals", prepared by experts and researchers from several countries and covering a wide range of subjects connected with the preparation and use of these slurries. Papers concerned the chemical aspects of the formulation of bituminous emulsions, the chemical interaction of their components, effects of the types and features of the aggregates used, kinds of emulsions used, additives, emulsifiers added, type and acidity of the bitumen incorporated in the composition, water constituting the aqueous phase, climate, etc. Other papers dealt with the optimum proportioning of the components, the addition of elastomers and the effect of the various factors to be taken into consideration in the preparation and laying of the mixture. Among the reports dealing with applications, the prominent ones were those related to renewal of pavements and the improvement of the skidding resistance with the consequent reduction in accident rates. Preparation and control tests of slurries were described together with the equipment used. Finally, several papers presented results of experiments on the behaviour of these slurries as surface dressings for urban and rural pavements. /TRRL/
