Binder Testing

The binder testing section of the laboratory has state-of-the-art equipment for asphalt binder testing and characterization. The main equipment includes Superpave Rotational Viscometer, Bending Beam Rheometer (BBR), Dynamic Shear Rheometer (DSR), Rolling Thin Film Oven (RTFO), and Pressure Aging Vessel (PAV). The Arizona State Univeristy Pavements and Materials program provides graduates with a comprehensive view of pavement technology. By housing both the asphalt binder and asphalt mixture laboratories in the same area, all students are exposed to the most critical national and international issues facing the asphalt paving technology community.
