BIG BIRDS ROOST ON RUBBERIZED PAVEMENTS

A TAR-LATEX MIX IS BEING TESTED TO DETERMINE ITS SUITABILITY IN AIRCRAFT PARKING AREAS AT JOHN F. KENNEDY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. PREVIOUS APPLICATIONS IN OTHER AREAS TOOK CARE OF THE FUEL DRIP AND WEAR PROBLEMS TO SUCH A DEGREE THAT THE MIX WAS RECOMMENDED FOR USE IN THE NEW APRON SECTIONS WHERE IT WILL BE PUT TO TEST BY THE WEIGHT AND MOVEMENT OF NEW GENERATION JETS. IN CONSTRUCTING THE APRON, THE AREA WAS FINE GRADED. THEN 6 IN. OF STONE SCREENING WERE PUT DOWN FOLLOWED BY 6 IN. THICK STONE BLEND PLANT MIX (10 IN.), 2 1/2 IN. OF BINDER, AND A TOP-OFF 1 OF 1/2 IN. RUBBERIZED MIX FOR A TOTAL OF 26 IN. OF MATERIAL. THE RUBBER SEEMS TO HAVE FACILITATED COMPACTION SINCE THE DESIRED DENSITY WAS ACHIEVED WITH THREE PASSES OF A ROLLER. THE SUPPLIER BLENDED THE RT-12 AND PLIOPAVE L -630, A CONCENTRATED LATEX COMPOUND AVAILABLE FOR BITUMINOUS USE FROM THE CHEMICAL DIVISION OF THE GOODYEAR TIRE AND RUBBER COMPANY.
