Use of recycling agents in asphalt mixtures with high recycled materials contents in the United States: A literature review Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • © 2019 Elsevier Ltd Recycling agents, or rejuvenators, are products with chemical and physical characteristics designed to restore the rheological properties of aged asphalt binders to improve the performance of recycled asphalt mixtures with large quantities of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) and recycled asphalt shingles (RAS) that promote economic and environmental benefits. This paper summarizes current knowledge related to the use of recycling agents in the asphalt pavement industry, including properties of recycled and rejuvenated asphalt mixtures. This information is further used to identify current and future challenges that could prevent utilization of recycling agents and production of rejuvenated asphalt mixtures with adequate performance.
