Asphalt binders

Published: | Category: Asphalt , Specifications | Audience: Road traffic engineers & consultants

This specification sets out the performance characteristics to be met by the binders used for asphalt manufacture.  It supersedes  M01-A: 2016  ‘ ‘Performance specification for asphalt binders’.

This specification is blind to the binder composition and so encompasses straight bitumen and polymer modified binders.  The grade of binder is selected based on site climate conditions, heavy vehicle traffic volumes and speeds and relates to the performance in asphalt in terms of rutting and fatigue resistance.
