USES OF DOPES AND ELASTOMERS IN BITUMINOUS MIXTURES

THIS ARTICLE STUDIES THE INFLUENCE OF DOPES ON THE ADHESIVENESS OF BITUMEN TO AGGREGATES. THE MOST COMMON DOPES ON THE MARKET ARE LISTED AND METHODS OF APPLICATION OF HOT-COATED BITUMINOUS MIXTURES CONTAINING DOPES ARE OUTLINED. THE EFFECT OF THE ADDITION OF ELASTOMERS ON THE RHEOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF BITUMINOUS BINDERS IS DISCUSSED. BECAUSE OF THE HETEROGENEOUS NATURE OF BITUMEN, IT IS RECOMMENDED TO CONDUCT AN EXTENSIVE STUDY OF THE APPLICATIONS OF DOPES. ELASTOMERS SHOULD BE ADDED ONLY IN VERY SPECIFIC CASES. /LCPC-RRL/
