Rheological characteristics of new binders and their combination with binder from reclaimed asphalt

- The result concerns the rheological characteristics of binders and their combination with the binder from the reclaimed asphalt. Comparisons are also performed with the rheological properties of the binders recovered from the experimental trials. The result is an important input for the future European specifications for the binders.

- The output of Paramix concerning the characteristics of the combined binder (new binder + old binder from RA) is of high interest for the road authorities and contractors, in Belgium and abroad.

- A lot of research in needed in this field in order to predict the performance of roads with use of reclaimed asphalt.
