An experimental study was conducted to evaluate the rheological and molecular characterization of rubberized asphalt emulsion. One rubberized asphalt emulsion and an asphalt rubber (CRS-2TR and AC20-TR) and two conventional emulsions (CRS-2 and CRS-2P) were evaluated. The emulsions were characterized by conducting rheological and physical testing. The influence of adding crumb rubber on the binder chemical composition was investigated in the laboratory using Fourier Transform Infrared Analysis (FTIR) on the original, Rolling-Thin Film Oven (RTFO) and Pressure Aging Vessel (PAV)-aged binder residues. Results showed that CRS-2TR and AC20-TR had lower carbonyl and sulfoxide indices indicating better resistance to aging compared to conventional asphalt emulsions. Results of High-Pressure Gel Permeation Chromatography (HP-GPC) on the original, RTFO and PAV-aged binder residues showed that CRS-2TR and AC20-TR had similar High-Molecular Weight (HMW) content compared to that of conventional asphalt emulsions indicating similar susceptibility to brittleness with age.
