Improving Asphalt Binder Properties for Cold Regions Using Plastic Modifiers

  • Project Description: The goal of this project is to modify asphalt binders with plastics.
  • Funding Agency: DOD
  • Funding: $873,291
  • Abstract: The compatibility of various types of plastics with asphalt binders along with their impact on the properties of asphalt binders and mixtures will be evaluated. The focus of most laboratory testing will be placed on cracking resistance.
