Abstract: The paper presents the results of testing of the following properties of mixes for thin asphalt wearing courses: ageing, resistance to water and frost, resistance to rutting and low temperature properties. Two types of mixes were tested: gap graded asphalt concrete and stone mastic asphalt. Four bitumens, one non-modified and three polymer modified bitumens were used. It was found that all the tested mixes were almost equally resistant to ageing, action of water and frost and rutting, with no special distinction for the type of bitumen and mix used. However, polymer modified bitumens produced mixes with better low temperature properties.
