AbstractAdhesion and cohesion are important aspects of performance of rubberized asphalts used for roofing and waterproofing. The conventional toughness-tenacity test performed with either the hemispherical or screw-type pull-head gives results that represent a combination of adhesive and cohesive forces. In many cases adhesion is lost, thus affecting peak load values. A new, tapering grooved head designed to improve the adhesion aspect has been tested with four commercial samples of rubberized asphalt. The results are compared with those for other heads. Most tests were conducted at several speeds of loading to study the effect on toughness and tenacity values. In a second series of tests, the effect of adhesion was eliminated and only cohesion determined. Finally, straight pull-off adhesion tests and ductility tests were conducted on all samples. The results suggest that the present accepted test methods and numerical requirements for the related physical properties in standards for hot-applied rubberized asphalts should be reassessed.
