Various Asphalt-Rubber technologies have failed in Czech Republic during past decades. Currently the wet process A-R technology is being tested and yields more encouraging results under climate conditions of Central Europe. Recently laboratory tests performed according to European standards have proven the benefits of Asphalt-rubber
binders and mixtures and their compliance with European production and control systems. The experience gained during the construction of test sections and the first years of A-R service promises noise reduction and increased road safety.
