Use of Hydrated Lime as an Antistripping Additive: Installation Report

Report No: 83-R26

Published in 1983

About the report:

The purpose of this investigation is to evaluate the effectiveness of hydrated lime as an antistripping additive in several test sections. The two sections installed in 1982 contain S-5 surface mixes with (1) hydrated lime, (2) a chemical additive, and (3) no additive. Stripping tests on the mixes have predicted that those containing hydrated lime are less susceptible to stripping than the identical mixes with conventional chemical additives. The construction of at least two additional test sections is planned for 1983.
