Warm asphalt mixture develops rapidly throughout the world in recent years. Zeolite based warm mix is one of the warm mixtures. In this paper, seven kinds of zeolites including six natural zeolites and one synthetic zeolite are selected. As warm mix additives, their physical properties such as density, water content and pore arrangements are tested respectively. To evaluate the compacting properties of zeolites based warm asphalt mixture, AC-20 mixture is designed and compaction is conducted. It shows that zeolites can reduce the compacting temperature for both Marshall and gyratory compaction. Temperature is the main factors which influence the compaction effect. Type of zeolite affects compaction to some extent. Marshall compaction is more sensitive to zeolite than gyratory compaction.
