THE EFFECT OF FLUX-OIL AND TRINIDAD LAKE ASPHALT CONTENT ON THE PHOTO-OXIDATION OF ASPHALTIC CEMENTS

THE RESULTS ARE GIVEN OF AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE EFFECT OF FLUX-OIL AND/ OR TRINIDAD LAKE ASPHALT CONTENT ON THE PHOTO-OXIDATION OF ASPHALTIC CEMENTS. THE INVESTIGATION SHOWED THAT: (1) A BITUMEN, "CUT-BACK" TO A PARTICULAR VISCOSITY WITH FLUX-OIL, DEVELOPED THE SAME SURFACE TEXTURE AND PRODUCED THE SAME AMOUNT OF WATER-SOLUBLE MATERIAL AS A STRAIGHT-RUN BITUMEN OF THE SAME VISCOSITY. (2) SURFACE TEXTURE DEVELOPED BY BLENDS OF TRINIDAD LAKE ASPHALT AND PETROLEUM BITUMEN IS INFLUENCED BY THE PERCENTAGE OF TRINIDAD LAKE ASPHALT IN THE BLEND AND THE SOURCES OF THE CRUDE OIL FROM WHICH THE BITUMEN WAS PRODUCED. /RRL/A/
