The dataset revolves around the laboratory testing of an innovative additive technology for possible stabilization of unbound courses in road pavements. The product is a synthetic fluid based on isoalkane and tall oil pitch. Two test types are performed. Repeated load triaxial tests evaluate the elastic stiffness and the deformation properties of both untreated and treated aggregates. Moreover, some specimens are also tested before and after being subjected to freezing-thawing actions. A modified version of the rolling bottle test appraises the integrity with stripping loss on loose aggregates covered by the additive. Considering the necessity for road maintenance and rehabilitation worldwide, experimental data dealing with the stabilization potential of an innovative synthetic fluid stabilizer can be relevant for several road stakeholders.
