Abstract

The binding of cellulose fibres to bitumen compared to polyester, mineral and glass fibres is presented. The surface characteristics of fibres were analysed using scanning electron micrographs and BET techniques. The results of elongation tests, softness, hardening and elasticity of the fibre-bitumen composites are shown. The influence of fibres in asphalt paving materials and mixtures used on roads is evaluated.
