Production of Bitumen Modified with Low-Molecular Organic Compounds from Petroleum Residues. 5. Use of Maleic Anhydride for Foaming Bitumens
The possibility of using maleic anhydride as a foaming agent to produce foamed bitumen was investigated. The optimal content of maleic anhydride was determined according to the indicators of the growth of the binder volume and the half-life of the foam. With use of maleic anhydride as a foaming agent, foamed bitumen was obtained, and later was used to obtain two samples of stone mastic asphalt, which differed in mixing and compaction temperatures of stone mastic asphalt mix.
