"Rheology of asphalt modified with NFU. Its use in dense asphalt mixtures, anti-reflective cracks and anti-skid"

The use of NFU in asphalt, not only allows reducing CO2 emissions, analyzed by the methodology of the life cycle of a product, but also generates improvements in asphalt until it is possible to formulate stable modified asphalt with the addition of NFU powder. .

This work shows the evolution of this technology, developed over 20 years in several Latin American countries, incorporating recycled rubber into asphalt by wet means.

Special emphasis is placed on the rheological evaluation with the PG and MSCR protocols of the dispersions, to then show the improvements produced in the resistance to rutting, reflex cracking and the macro and micro texture of hot asphalt mixtures.

Conference General Scope

RAR2022 will focus on any and all rubberized asphalt materials containing scrap tire rubber, from a low percentage such as 5 percent to higher percentages above even 24 percent. Since there have been so many recent significant changes in the testing, specifying and application of scrap tire rubber in asphalt this Conferences focus is literally on all types of asphalt binders or asphalt hot mixes containing any percentage of scrap tire rubber, as well as both wet and dry applications. In addition both generic and proprietary rubberized asphalt products can be reported. Case studies, environmental effects and benefits, cost effectiveness of many paving construction materials and techniques will be presented.
