Asphalt Testing Equipment: Market Outlook
Asphalt testing equipment is used for the testing of the type of mixtures that can be carried out to suit a particular engineering requirement. Asphalt is also known as bitumen and is used mostly in road construction and roofing applications.
The asphalt testing equipment is used to design a suitable mix for producing the right mixture with low maintenance costs. The 5% of asphalt is mixed with other constituents such as sand and gravel which make up 95% and is tested with the asphalt testing equipment to constitute a mixture that can be used for specific purposes.
Reuse of the asphalt from pavements driving the market of asphalt testing equipment
The asphalt pavements that are that get damaged are returned to a facility for processing new pavement mixtures. These mixtures that are returned are constituted into a new mixture with the help of asphalt testing equipment and reused as new roadbeds or pavements.
According to surveys conducted by the U.S. Federal Highway Administration and the National Asphalt Pavement Association, each year more than 99% of the asphalt removed from roads for different reasons is reused. This reuse of the asphalt from the pavements has led to the demand for asphalt testing equipment.
