Moisture Sensitivity In Asphalt Mixes : Causes, Cures and Case Studies

Moisture Sensitivity In Asphalt Mixes : Causes, Cures and Case Studies


How do you predict and, critically, prevent asphalt pavement failure due to moisture sensitivity? Our specialist presenters will provide solutions in the form of test methodologies, case studies and technologies to help you avoid potentially costly damage. Moisture susceptibility is a primary cause of distress in asphalt surfaced pavements. Asphalt  mixes are susceptible to moisture if the internal bitumen-to-aggregate bond weakens in the presence of water. This weakening can result in stripping.

Join our workshop to understand and avoid long-term moisture stripping.

This webinar has been registered for CPD accreditation. CPD Certificate Number will be available on the day.
