Self Healing Aspalt on the A58

On this Blog we will give info on the test track with Self Healing Asphalt that is built on the A58 near Vlissingen in The Netherlands. The Asphalt is a special type of ZOAB (very porous aphalt concrete) containing small steelwool fibres. A known but serious problem with ZOAB is ravelling: stones at the surface coming off in time due to microcracking in the binder. The special ZOAB that is developed at Delft University (sponsored by AgentschapNL) can be heated with induction energy due to the fibres that are present which closes the microcracks and with that extends the service life of the road.

  1. Thanks for sharing this information. I have been seeing that the asphalt patching is getting worse in the drive way. Keep up the great work!

  2. This really was great information! I had learned a few things over my summer job dealing with asphalt road repair Minneapolis. It was really fun, there is so much to learn about it surprisingly. Thanks again for sharing!

  3. I never ever read such type of info before this was really incredible. Fry Asphalt website
