This review explores the type of polymers used in asphalt, why they are used, where they are used in terms of applications and the benefits they offer to industry and the road user. In particular, the reader will understand how polymers can be used to enhance the functionality of asphalt, that is to overcome deterioration mechanisms by enhancing asphalt stiffness or flexibility, or by making it more resistant to deformation (rutting) caused by traffic. This review is aimed at anyone who has an interest in polymers and their highway applications. Around 400 references with abstracts from recent global literature accompany this review, sourced from the Rapra Polymer Library database, to facilitate further reading. A subject index and a company index are included.
