Abstract

Fuel resistance is an important characteristic of asphalt binders, especially when used in airport fields and filling stations. However, the relevant standards are presently lacking and the scientific literature on the development of suited formulations is sparse. In this paper, a simple procedure to assess the fuel resistance of asphalts (considered in a dynamic sense) is proposed. A number of polymer modified asphalts (PMAs), prepared from two bases and 4 or 6 wt% of several polymers, have been analyzed with this procedure and the relationships between fuel resistance and morphology of the PMAs, the chemical structure of the polymers and the composition of the asphalt bases have been investigated.
