The increased traffic load encourages
premature damage to the pavement. The damage is in the
form of potholes, cracks, waves, and deformation of the
road pavement. The elastomer content in natural rubber
can be used as an asphalt modification material.
Indonesia is one of the largest rubber producers in the
world. From the results of research that has been done,
natural rubber can increase the characteristic value of
asphalt concrete mixtures. Stability, flow, VIM, VMA,
and VFA values have increased. But the value of the
Marshall Quotient has decreased.
