An Alternative Asphalt Binder, Sulfur-Extended Asphalt (SEA)
Sulfur-extended asphalt has been used in dense-graded mixtures with sulfur/asphalt binder mass ratios from 20/80 to 40/60, and at times even up to 50/50 (3). The emulsified portion of sulfur performs as an asphalt extender while any excess sulfur performs as a mix filler or stabilizer.

Rock Binders: Sulfur Extended Asphalt Modifier
Rock Binders has developed a pellet form of additive for paving mix, Sulfur Extended Asphalt Modifier (SEAM). Solid at ambient temperature but meltable in your hot plant, SEAM combines sulfur and plasticizers to provide 10% to 35% cost savings over other Polymer Modified Asphalt.
Field Evaluation of Sulfur-Extended Asphalt Pavements
Field Evaluation of Sulfur-Extended Asphalt Pavements TOMMY L. BEATIY, KURT DUNN, EDWARD T. HARRIGAN, KEVEN STUART, AND HAROLD WEBER Twenty-six sulfur-extended asphalt (SEA) paving projects, constructed between 1975 and 1982 In 18 states, were surveyed to measure the incidence and severity of major, visible types of pavement distress.
Sulfur in Asphalt Paving Mixes - Advances in Chemistry (ACS ...
The addition of molten sulfur to hot-mix asphalt paving materials increases mix workability so that the mixes may be placed without roller densification. As the mix cools, the sulfur solidifies and imparts such a high degree of mechanical stability to the mix that high quality mixes may be produced ...
VM0030 Methodology for Pavement Application using Sulphur ...
1. The baseline scenario is the production and use of hot mix asphalt for paving, and where solid sulphur is not used for paving or as any part of the paving process. 2. Under the baseline scenario, sulphur used in the project to produce hot mix asphalt is a byproduct of other industrial processes and is not produced for use as an extender or

sulphur to asphaltic pavements can produce better, more economic pavements.” – FHWA-RD-78-160 • “…the presence of 20 to 40 percent by weight of sulfur in the paving binder had no deleterious effect on the overall performance of SEA pavement…” – Field Evaluation of Sulfur-Extended Asphalt Pavements, TRR 1115
Partial substitution of asphalt pavement with modified sulfur ...
Sulfur Extended Asphalt (SEA) was originally developed and promoted in the 1970s and 80s by the US Bureau of Mines and Federal Highways. However, significant problems with storing hot sulfur at the asphalt mix plant as well as pre-blending the sulfur with the bitumen were encountered.
