Tests were carried out as per ASTM, MoDOT, and SUPERPAVE specifications, and results were compared to MoDOT’s specifications for 11 million Equivalent Single Axel Loads (EASL). Tests were performed do determine the design percent binder (P b ), at the standard 4.0% air voids (V a ), using your ½” minus material. Specimens were prepared at 5.5%, 6.0%, 6.5%, 7.0%, and 7.5% binder by weight of hot-mix, and results were analyzed at 4% air voids. According to the analysis, the percent binder should be set to 5.4%. With this the case: VMA Passes MoDOT 403 VFA Passes MoDOT 403 If we can be of further service, please call us at 1-800-277-4258 (1-800-ASPHALT). We look forward to hearing from you again.
