Binder Selection for Winter Seals Based on Bitumen Bond Strength

Kim Jenkins

Kim Jenkins talks us through the key factors, including various test results that help practitioners to make informed decisions. The presentation touches on bitumen specifications and performance grading, BBS tests including adhesion/cohesion factors, hot applied binders versus emulsions, the influence of precoat, manufacturing temperature and more. Well informed decisions can be made when selecting materials for surface seals if BBS properties are known, Jenkins concludes.
