Consensus Properties

Consensus properties are aggregate characteristics critical to well-performing hot mix asphalt, regardless of the aggregate source, and whose limiting values are set by the Superpave specification. There are four aggregate consensus properties:

  1. coarse aggregate angularity
  2. fine aggregate angularity
  3. flat and elongated particles
  4. clay content.
