2020-04-02 · Warm-mix asphalt concrete (commonly abbreviated as WMA) This is produced by adding either zeolites, waxes, asphalt emulsions, or sometimes even water to the asphalt binder prior to mixing.This allows significantly lower mixing and laying temperatures and results in lower consumption of fossil fuels, thus releasing less carbon dioxide, aerosols and vapors.
Design asphalt mix without aramid fiber and do not alter the final mix design for the addition of aramid fiber at the plant. The dosage rate may vary per project depending on the specification and needed performance enhancement, but in general a minimum of 3.6 oz. coated weight per ton of asphalt mix (of which 1.8 oz. is pure aramid) and not more than 9.0 oz. coated weight (4.5 oz. pure aramid) per ton of asphalt mix.
The polymer-modified asphalt helps to reduce draindown and improve the high-temperature performance of the mix (resistance to scuffing). Fibers are another way to reduce draindown. In draindown, which sometimes occurs during construction, liquid asphalt cement migrates to the bottom of the load of asphalt pavement material. Modern construction ...

Proper mix design is very important to achieve the desired sealcoating performance. The very basic fact in the mix design is that sealer is always used at 100 base. The quantities and the percentages of other ingredients are always expressed at sealer being at the 100 base. For example: 1.
A modern hot mix asphalt facility provides high production, good quality mixes (including recycled asphalt pavement if desired) while meeting stringent air quality standards. 3.
