Adhesion Characteristics Study On Waste Plastics Modified Bitumen
Numerous tests have been described most of which fall into six basic types. Theyare static immersion test, dynamic immersion, chemical immersion test, immersionmechanical test, immersion trafficking test and vialit test. The sixth test different in principle, that is an attempt is made to coat stone with binder in the presence of water. Inthis case the degree of coating is used as the index of adhesivity.
1.2VIALIT AS AN ADHESION TEST
Apparatus and materials required :1.Steel plate of size 200mm x 200mm.2.100 chips of aggregate passing 19mm IS sieve and retained on 12.5mm IS sieve.3.Steel ball weighing 500gms.4.Rubber roller weighing 25kg.5.Bitumen 60/706.Plastics.7.Thermometer Procedure :1.Weigh 100g of bitumen binder and heated up to pouring temperature of 75°C to100 °C.2.The bitumen sample is spreaded on 200mm x 200mm size of steel plate and thenkept in water bath for cooling.3.The binder is covered with 100 chips of aggregates passing 19mm IS sieveand retained on 12.5mm IS sieve and rolled six times perpendicularly and threetimes parallely with a rubber cylinder weighing 25kg.4.The gravel plate is maintained at room temperature and it is placed in water bathfor 20minutes.5.The plate is then inverted on to a tripod and a steel ball weighing 500g is droppedfrom a height of 50cm.6.The number of chips which fall are not coated at all with binder, the number of chips which fall and are partially coated with binder and the number of chipswhich adhere are collected and recorded.3
