Study of disperse polymer systems for producing high-quality polymeric-bituminous materials

Distribution of components of disperse polymer systems used for producing bituminous materials was determined in terms of polymer quantity and particle size in o-xylene solution by conductometric dispersion analysis method using a Coulter counter. Polymer concentrations at which the dispersity, surface tension, and dynamic viscosity of the disperse system are optimum for blending the polymer with the bitumen and producing the polymeric-bituminous materials with assigned service properties are determined.
