AbstractThe effect of mineral stabilizers on the performance and durability of asphalt is a well established phenomenon. If such stabilizers are not added, asphalt exposed to solar radiation combined with other weathering factors, such as temperature and moisture, experiences photo-oxidation, hardening, and surface cracking (alligatoring). Until recently, mineral stabilizers were added on an empirical basis, but there is now available a fair amount of knowledge based on research carried out in laboratories in industry and government. This paper is a further valuable contribution to understanding the process of ageing and stabilization of bituminous materials.
