In a jointly executed program, Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and Kraton Polymers have developed a new generation of SBS modified asphalt binders that allow construction of thinner and more durable pavements. To validate findings from these studies, Kraton committed to a field trial in 2009 at the National Center for Asphalt Technology (NCAT) in Auburn, Ala. A highly modified asphalt base course at reduced thickness is compared to a standard base course under heavy truck loading.
