To evaluate the possibility of using Waste Powder Material (WPM) produced from moisc tiles polishing as a sustainable filler in asphalt mixture, some properties of asphalt mastic containing WPM were investigated in this paper, and the results of the current study were compared with the common Lime Stone Mineral (LSM) filler. The investigated mastic consisted of asphalt and filler with a mass ratio of 1:1. The rheological properties were tested using the penetration, softening point, ductility, elastic recovery, furol viscosity, extensional viscosity, dynamic shear rheometer, temperature susceptibility, compatibility, and cone penetration tests. Results indicate that there is a possibility of using WPM as a sustainable filler derived from mosaic tile polishing facilities to improve the performance of asphalt. The using of WPM showed a better effect on improving the shear, rutting and fatigue resistance, as well as temperature sensitivity of asphalt mastic than the using of LSM.
