Conventional Anti-stripping Agents

The Premature failure of Bituminous Pavements due to action of water is the most common problem and single biggest factor causing early pavement distress. The most important reason contributing to this condition is improper adhesion between bitumen and commonly used aggregates, salt contamination of water/soil and water drainage problems. Majority of aggregate show high stripping value (as high as 70%) and most of them fail miserably in bitumen adhesion properties. These conditions prevail across continents, thus all around the world, anti-stripping agents are recommended and used to extend pavement life.
