ACC Understanding the Performance Grade (PG) Asphalt Binder System: How to Specify the Correct Binder for Your Airfield Project Live Webinar

Product not yet rated

Includes a Live Event on 04/16/2020 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

This ACC webinar will provide an overview of the Performance Grade (PG) asphalt binder specification (ASTM D6373) used by the FAA to select the proper asphalt for use in airfield pavements. It will detail the development of the Performance Grade (PG) binder system and compare it with the shortcomings of the previous asphalt binder grading systems. The program will explain the effects of climate on asphalt pavement performance, and how the PG system selects the asphalt grade for any project location. The presenter will describe in detail the tests used to grade asphalts using the PG system and their relationships to field performance. The webinar will also explain asphalt "grade bumping" criteria - why it is necessary and how it applies to the current FAA specifications for designing airfield asphalt pavements. Participants will learn how selecting an incorrect asphalt binder for an airfield pavement can cause the pavement to rut or crack prematurely, which shortens the pavement life significantly. The webinar will outline why it is important to understand the basics of the PG asphalt binder system to be able to select the asphalt which will provide the highest level of pavement performance and the longest pavement life.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

At the end of this ACC webinar, participants will be able to:
• Differentiate between the PG binder system and the previous asphalt specifications.  
• Describe the tests used to grade asphalts in the PG system.  
• Explain the importance of "grade bumping" on airfield pavements. 
• Select and apply the correct asphalt for any airfield project.
