Effectiveness of Seal Rejuvenators for Bituminous Pavement Surfaces
This study investigated the effects of applying three different types of rejuvenators on a highly aged parking lot pavement, which had shown some severe raveling. Cores were taken from the pavement before and after the treatments to examine the effects of these treatments. Tests were performed to determine the viscosity of the recovered asphalt binders from different layers of the pavement before and after the treatment. Right before coring, the surface texture and skid resistance were measured to assess whether the treatment had adversely affected the frictional properties of the pavement.
