This course focuses on the bituminous binder of asphalt mixes and surfacing seals. The composition, testing, specifications (global and local), behaviour, performance and certification of binders, linked to PG specs, will be covered. The link between the bitumen and its behaviour in a seal or asphalt, will form an integral part of the course in. In particular the course will cover:

- International and SA trends in binder testing and specification (for unmodified and modified bitumen types), with a link to performance classification, and
- Binder applications and requirement differences for HMA and seals
