Graniterock: Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement

Another valuable asset of Graniterock’s Recycle Division is a portable screening plant that can be set up to produce reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) and other aggregate products. RAP is old pavement that is reclaimed and processed for use again.

USE OF MARBLE DUST AS FILLERS IN ASPHALT PAVEMENT

2017-11-2  (a)The addition of marble and granite dusts to asphalt concrete can produce properties comparable to the conventional asphalt concrete mixes with stone dust as filler. (b)These fillers can be used up to 7 % in asphalt concrete mixes. But it is suggested to use them in the range of 4 to 5.5

Effect of aggregate properties on asphalt pavement

Aggregate characteristics within pavement significantly affect pavement surface texture,which is an important factor for pavement surface friction. However, road surfaces are constantly exposed to traffic and severe weather that cause aggregate degradation and polishing, accelerating the pavement surface friction deterioration [2],[3] .

Graniterock: Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement

Hot mix asphalt (HMA) is one of the most recycled products in North America. Industry and Government estimates range as high as 100 million tons of HMA are recycled annually. According to a recent report issued by the Federal Highway Administration and the EPA, 80 percent of the asphalt pavement that is removed each year during roadway repair and replacement projects is reused as part of new

A Study on Improving the Adhesiveness between

Granite, due to the poor adhesiveness with asphalt, cannot be widely used as aggregate in asphalt pavement. In this study, nanoscaled calcium carbonate (CaCO3), was selected as modifier to modify asphalt. The adhesion of aggregate and asphalt was evaluated by Boiling test method and the Marshall Test and Immersion Marshall Test were conducted on asphalt concrete (AC-16) according to the

Graniterock: Technical Reports

The action of traffic on the pavement rapidly accelerates the raveling process, as it develops a “pumping action” that drives free water through the pavement and provides the physical forces necessary to remove the aggregates as the aggregate/asphalt bonds are weakened. Placement in wet weather greatly increases the raveling potential of a mix.
