Very interesting "new" technology. The State of Georgia's Department of Transportation Asphalt Design Lab in Forest Park, Georgia tested polymerized asphalt in the late 80's or early 90's. The results were nothing short of amazing. If I remember correctly work-ability was an issue but not a showstopper. Longevity projections were so long some thought it could be disruptive to the paving industry. Years ago you could ride through Atlanta is a pouring rain at highway speed without the hydroplaning issue. A porous, polymerized, open lattice asphalt that allowed the water to leach through the surface layer and drain away was being used.
