Tribological Testing of Bituminous Mastics

Bitumen is commonly used in asphalt as a binder between aggregates, thereby reducing friction and wear

Laying asphalt pavements is an energy-intensive process. In addition, the high temperatures encountered have the negative effect of producing undesirable fumes, and also cause thermal ageing of asphalt. One way to partially deal with this issue would be to reduce the processing (mixing and compaction) temperature of the asphalt.
