Plastic Fines, Flexible Pavement, Bitumen, Marshall Mix Design, Phosphorescent Highway Paint


This study is aimed at replacing a portion of bitumen by using plastic fines in laying flexible pavements. The Quantum of Plastic waste in Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is increasing due to increase in population, urbanization, etc., which leading widespread littering on the landscape. Since plastic is a non-biodegradable material it can be recycled in this way, which is a safe disposal of waste plastics. In flexible pavement construction plastic coated aggregate showed better binding property. They do not absorb much water, have better flexibility which results in less rutting and less need for repair. Road surfaces remain smooth and absorb sound better. Optimum binder content is determined using Marshall mix design. The Phosphorescent highway paint lane markers are intended to increase road visibility in a more energy-efficient way than traditional street lighting. The various proportions of Aqua green blue Phosphorescent pigment, water based Acrylic Polyurethane, White water based Highway paint were studied and the optimum proportion was found. And showing better road visibility, energy efficient.
