In bituminous materials, course aggregates perform the bulking action of the mixture and contributes to the stability of resulting mix. Fine aggregates form the major proportion of mortar.

Filler: it stiffens and strengthens the binder.
Binder: cements the whole mixture together and provides waterproofing.


This question is taken from book named – A Self Learning Manual – Mastering Different Fields of Civil Engineering Works (VC-Q-A-Method) by Vincent T. H. CHU.
