A SURFACE-DRESSING TRIAL WITH TAR CONTAINING BUTADIENE-ACRYLONITRILE RUBBER ON THE B5305 AT SEBERGHAM, CUMBRIA

With the aim of developing thermally stable polymer-modified tars for surface dressing and other applications a butadiene-acrylonitrile rubber (breon 1562 latex) was incorporated in a road tar of coke-oven origin. The large-scale preparation of the binder gave a material with better properties than those of binder prepared in the laboratory using similar materials. The material was satisfactorily applied and in the six months since application the surface dressing has given good performance. Details of the site, materials, method of application and sampling and inspection are given. /TRRL/
