Comparisons of Rubberized Asphalt Binders: Asphalt-Rubber and Terminal Blend



The paper provides a comparison between two different rubberized asphalt binders; namely asphalt rubber and terminal blend. It discusses the two processes used to incorporate recycled tire rubber in hot mix asphalt and seal coats. The paper delves into the performance history, field test section, accelerated pavement testing, laboratory performance tests, binder properties, film thickness, application rates and specification
requirements of the two binder types. It concludes that asphalt rubber and terminal blend binders are distinct from each other and possess completely different characteristics. Each of these binders has its own properties and unique applications.
