A question of performance: do PMBs work?

In 2005 the Australian Asphalt Pavement Association (AAPA) established a project focusing on polymer modified binder performance in the field. The major aim of the project was to provide greater assurance to users that polymer modified binders (PMBs) are being delivered in a 'fit-for-purpose' state. An earlier initiative of the AAPA team was the development and publication of a code of practice for the manufacture, storage and handling of PMBs, a document aimed at promulgating best practice throughout the PMB supply chain. Another initiative of the project was to identify and quantify the perceptions of end users and operations personnel of the performance of PMBs in the field, both in their application and in service. This paper reports on the activities of the AAPA PMB field quality project and the development, conduct and outcomes of a survey of user perceptions conducted by ARRB Group on behalf of AAPA.
