THE USE OF PERFORMANCE GRADED ASPHALT CEMENT IN

The recent introduction of SHRP performance graded asphalt cement (PGAC) specifications did not examine the issue of recycling. The Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) developed a recycling strategy where a particular PGAC would be used, depending on the location and the percentage of RAP being used. This is an interim stage until further research and field verification can be done. In ...
