State of the Practice: Design and Construction of Asphalt Paving Materials with Crumb Rubber Modifier Methods
Primary Topic: Materials-Asphalt
Description: This document is a comprehensive overview of the terminology, processes, products, and applications of crumb rubber modifier (CRM) technology. This technology includes any use of scrap tire rubber in asphalt paving materials. In general, CRM technology can be divided into two categories-the wet process and the dry process. When CRM is incorporated into an asphalt paving material, it will modify the properties of the binder (asphalt rubber) and/or act as a rubber aggregate (rubber modified hot mix asphalt). The five concepts for using CRM discussed in the report are McDonald, PlusRide, generic dry, chunk rubber asphalt concrete, and continuous blending asphalt rubber.
