Asphalt Performance Testing
Performance testing services are a crucial part of the asphalt QC/QA process, ensuring the produced mix and finished pavement meets the standards for durability and performance. It includes a variety of tests to evaluate different characteristics predicting how the mixture will behave under specific conditions. Performance testing is useful in the product development stage of asphalt additives and modifiers, so the suppliers can provide the best product to the contractors to solve the issue at hand. This information also helps the mix producers understand how different variables can create the most economic and sustainable mixture.
