Abstract
This research investigates the effects of styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) copolymer and other plastomers on the behavior of Saudi bitumen. Three bitumen samples, extracted from three Saudi oil refineries, namely Ras Tanura, Riyadh, and Yanbu, were used in this study. The bitumen samples were mixed with different modifiers in various compositions, forming polymer modified bitumens (PMBs). Elasticity parameters, such as ductility and elastic recovery were measured and evaluated. Characteristics of raw bitumen were analyzed to observe the compatibility of bitumen with SBS and plastomers. Bitumen samples were suitable for SBS modification and SBS PMBs showed superior elasticity behaviors compared to plastomer blends.
