Our products have been tested for performance
BioBased Spray Systems LLC has had its pavement application performance tested by the Transportation Research Center, Inc. with great results.
Rheology Testing, Viscosity-Penetration Benefits
The testing provided in this category all deal with the viscosity, penetration, and rheology of asphalt binder. Decreasing viscosity and increasing penetration are very simple changes in the binder that can be observed, displaying the improved flexibility of a pavement. The summarized results below are in compliance with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) P-632 specification for a bituminous pavement rejuvenator.
- Mideastern Ohio Township Rd
- Decrease in viscosity – 30%
- Increase in penetration – 48%
- CA Test Method 365 (CTM 365) Recovery & CTM 348 Viscosity, APART 17-815 – Crawford Township, Carey Co
- 6 Year old Road re-treated, Ohio Township
- Viscosity decrease
- Penetration increase
- AASHTO T315 Dynamic Shear Rheology, APART 815A – Franklin Township, Shelby Co
MicroPAVER ASTM D6433 is a pavement management software devolved by the United Stated Department of Defense as a way to analyze and rate pavements on a scale from 0-100.
This study was performed of a county road in western Ohio in order to observe the 10 year benefits to Biorestor’s preservation treatment. Pavement Condition Index (PCI) numbers are calculated in this report showing a 11 point higher PCI of treated vs. untreated road after the 10 year study. A quote from this article states: “This is proof that over a 10 year period the Biorestor treatment has provided an additional 2-3 years of extended life.”

Friction affect for asphalt rejuvenation products has always been in the back of the minds of engineers. This affect was one that Biorestor has minimized significantly. While there are still variable cure times with every situation, Biorestor has continued to display safe friction values on treated pavements.
BioBased Spray Systems offers friction testing from their In-house owned Findlay Irvine Micro Grip Tester.
Testing for the Marshal stability was performed on treated and untreated samples utilizing ASTM- 6927, ASTM-D-5 and ASTM D-2170. These tested observed the Marshal stability, penetration, and viscosity of asphalt binders before and after 5 years of accelerated aging parameters. Treated specimens were summarized as followed:
- 29% improved penetration
- 45% improved viscosity
- 17% improved Marshal stability.
- ASTM D-6927 -06 Marshall Stability, 5 year aging
- ASTM D-5 Penetration, 5 year aging
- ASTM D-2170 Viscosity, 5 year aging
- Bowser Morner Treated Pavement Comparison Summary
