    Abstract

    In this study, the effect of antistrip additives on asphalt binders was evaluated by both laboratory tests and a proposed chemical model of asphalt binder based on the surface free energy characteristics. Two performance graded asphalt binders, namely, PG 64-22 and PG 70-28 and two amine-based liquid antistrip additives, namely, AD-Here HP Plus and Redicote E-6 were evaluated at different percentages (0.25 %, 0.75 %, and 1.5 %). It was found that 1.5 %AD-Here HP Plus and 1.5 % Redicote E-6 increased the total SFE of PG 64-22 by 67 % and 208 %, respectively. Also, the acid components of PG 64-22 and PG 70-28 are 2.9 dyne/cm and 2.5 dyne/cm, respectively, whereas, the corresponding base components are 0.4 dyne/cm for both. With the addition of 1.5 %. Redicote E-6 in PG 64-22, the acid component of the binder reduced by 92 % and the base component of the binder increased by 1141 %.
