Abstract

The main aim of research is to study the impact of Bakelite on various properties of bitumen binder. It has a three dimensional structure and is polymer amorphous in nature. It provide strength, hardness and rigidity. This paper gives overview on the use Bakelite in roads. Previous studies show that Bakelite can improve some properties of modified bitumen mix. Bakelite mixed in bitumen in different percentages from 1% to 5% with an increment of .25%. From environment and economic point of view, use of Bakelite as an additive to bitumen mix give good result. The mixing of Bakelite with bitumen mix also increases the life of pavement. The use of Bakelite material in roads construction can increase the age of pavements for longer time.

Keywords: Bakelite, Formaldehyde, Rigidity
