3rd CRISPS Webinar: Epoxy Modified Bitumen – Performance from Laboratory Test, Trials and Applications to Date
December 14, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
The International Road Federation, in collaboration with the University of Birmingham (UoB), the University of Auckland (UoA) and the Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), is pleased to present the 3rd CRISPS Webinar on “Epoxy Modified Bitumen – Performance from Laboratory Test, Trials and Applications to Date.”
This research investigates the feasibility of using Modified Epoxy bitumen in Porous Asphalt (MEAC) and Chip Seals (MECS) which addresses climate-related issues with conventional bitumen in asphalt and chip seal. This technology can be used to build unbound granular pavements (locally built with as much or as little labour as desired) with MECS and MEAC, which would produce a long-life pavement with little need for maintenance. It would also need low investment in machinery. Initial research outcomes suggested these surfaces have the potential to last more than 40 years.
Join us on 14 December 2021 from 8:00 to 9:00 am CET to hear more about the early findings from the “Climate-resilient sustainable road pavement surfacing (CRISPS)” project.
Speaking for You:
