Abstract

In this study, it is shown how recycled rubber and waste plastics can modify the softening point and penetration of asphalt traditionally used for highways. It is shown that the modified asphalt can meet the performance index requirements when the components are present with a certain proportion or relative ratio (1:3.5). The dispersion process of the masterbatch in base asphalt can effectively be implemented, with good results and a smaller mixing time. The proposed approach may be regarded as a good strategy to achieve energy savings and protection of the environment.
