Research of In Situ Polymerization and Core-Shell Structure Modified Emulsified Asphalt
Nowadays, there are dominantly two ways of producing modified emulsified asphalt ,one of which is to emulsify modified asphalt, the other to modify asphalt emulsion. But they have the same defect that modifier cannot be evenly mixed with asphalt emulsion, which has side effect on the performance of modified emulsified asphalt. The emulsified asphalt and modifier have different traits in structure and property. In order to make the modifier disperse in asphalt emulsion evenly to improve the performance of modified emulsified asphalt, a tentative idea is brought forward: we shall utilize in-situ polymerization and core-shell structure to enhance feature of emulsified asphalt. Core-shell structure is a method of synthesizing composite material, which can assist to achieve sound effect of the two kinds of materials. The point to emphasize is, in this paper, the introduction and feasibility of the method, its specialty against current mainly methods, the difficulties encountered in practice as well as its promising prospect and the anticipated target to achieve will all be illustrated.
