LONDON, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Asphalt additives are substances added to asphalt to modify characteristic properties of asphalt binder. Primary reason for adding additives to asphalt is to increase the functional temperature range of asphalt. Viscosity of asphalt decreases at high temperature and increases drastically at low temperature. This hinders the usage of asphalt in roads, pavements, airfields, and parking lots made of asphalt. Usage of additives helps overcome this shortcoming. Additives are also used to enhance the binding property of asphalt by strengthening the asphalt aggregate bond. Furthermore, additives improve the film thickness of asphalt, thus preventing cracking, raveling, and deformation. This, in turn, reduces maintenance cost of asphalt-constructed structures. There are different types of asphalt additives. However, varieties that are primarily used include asphalt rubber, polymers, and chemical modifiers. Fibers and fillers are also used as additives in asphalt.
