This article presents the review of surface dressing wear courses, being the version of preservation and sealing of road structures' top layers. In the article, there is studied the adhesion of aggregates (from various granite quarries of Ukraine) with a bitumen binder, namely bitumen emulsion, for application in surface dressing for road pavements. In the article, there are used both the Ukrainian and European testing methods for the determination of adhesion in the bitumen-aggregate system.
In this article the study is done for the adhesion of aggregates coming from various granite quarries of Ukraine with bituminous binder, namely with bitumen emulsion – for application in surface dressing technology for road pavements treatment. In the article there are used the Ukrainian and European testing methods for determination of adhesion in the “bitumen – aggregate” system. According to the Ukrainian method, there was determined the adhesion of residual binder with the chips surface after boiling in the distilled water and in the solution of glycerin and distilled water.
This article is devoted to development and production (on a lab emulsion plant) of six compositions of slow-setting bitumen emulsions for a slurry-surfacing mix. An aggregate composition for Type 1 (0–5 mm) and Type 3 (0–15 mm) slurry-surfacing mixes was determined and selected.
Slow-breaking monophase cationic bitumen emulsions have been produced on the basis of bitumen modified with phenol-cresol-formaldehyde resin (PhCR-F). Bitumen emulsions were used as a binder for thin-layer coatings with slurry surfacing mixes (SSM). Physical and technical parameters of modified and unmodified emulsions were determined and analyzed. The optimal compositions of SSM were selected according to the breaking criterion. The values of SSM wet track abrasion were determined.
The road slow-setting monophase cationic bitumen emulsions have been prepared from bitumen modified by coumarone-indene resin with epoxy groups. Еmulsions were obtained using a colloid mill at the standard temperatures (413–423 K). The physico-technical parameters of modified monophase emulsions have been established and the comparative analysis with the basе sample has been made.
The article presents the results of selecting the optimal composition of Slurry Seal for thin-layer protective pavement of Slurry Seal type for criterion of the mixture breakup.
Three commercial road emulsions on the basis of petroleum bitumens differing by their production method (oxidated, distillation and modified bitumens) and Redicote E-11 emulsifier were obtained. The obtained emulsions were used for the production of Slurry Seal and thin-layer road coatings on its basis. The coatings based on modified oxidated bitumen have more advantages compared with those based on oxidated bitumen. The expensive distillation bitumen may be exchanged for modified oxidative one to use it in a Slurry Seal technology.
