Reutilization of spent tyre scrap rubber for modification of asphalt

Polimery 1998, No 5, 280

DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.1998.280


Of the several practical methods of utilization of rubber scrap, the modification of asphalt with crumb rubber deserves special attention especially that several problems concerning rubber-modified asphalt still remain unresolved. The state of art is reviewed, covering reuse of rubber scrap in road construction (preparation of a rubber modifier, dry and wet methods of asphalt modification, properties of rubber-modified asphalts). Recycled rubber can serve as a substitute for the more expensive polymers used to modify asphalts. Rubber-modified asphalts endow the road surface with better service properties. Legal regulations and state-stimulated economic incentives are now required.
