Asphalt Resources
How do we communicate asphalt's value to maintain our competitive edge? How do we promote our strengths while staying positive? NAPA's Drivability campaigns spoke to road owners about the benefits asphalt pavements offer drivers. Now, the Performance for a Lifetime campaign emphasizes the performance attributes pavement owners care about most - Value, Innovation, Flexibility and Sustainability.
Whether you're new to the Industry or want to brush up on your skills, SCAPA Academy is a great learning resource!
The U.S Federal Highway Administration has released a report in September of 2018 titled, “Proposed Performance-Prediction Equations and Threshold Triggers for Thin-Overlay Treatments Using the Long-Term Pavement Performance Database,” which discusses the developments in the guidelines and performance-prediction equations used to select the most appropriate time to apply a thin-overlay treatment based on the condition of the existing pavement. The purpose of applying thin-overlays is to correct surface defects, improve ride quality, improve safety characteristics and extend pavement life without increasing the structural capacity of the pavement. The application of a thin-overlay is expected to extend the life of a pavement by 8–10 years, although this range may vary depending on traffic, environmental conditions, quality of the materials and workmanship (Elwardany el at.,2018).
