This study aims to investigate the rheological and chemical characteristics of asphalt rubber (AR) binders modified with four non-foaming warm mix asphalt (WMA) additives: Evotherm-DAT, Sasobit, conventional paraffin wax, and combined Evotherm-DAT and Sasobit. The main findings of this study include that: (1) all selected WMA additives are effective in enhancing AR's workability; (2) using combined Evotherm-DAT and Sasobit is not a viable option to reduce the construction temperature of AR mixture; (3) paraffin wax is a potential WMA additive for AR; and (4) WMA additives may affect the dissolution status of crumb rubber in base asphalt.
