Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA) represents the technologies that allow the reducing of asphalt binders’ mixing and compaction temperatures by reducing its binders’ viscosity. This paper gives a comprehensive chronological review from prior researches and practical experienced among researchers and industrial practitioners while implementing WMA technology including constituent materials, mix design and mechanical performance issues. Within this, the problems and benefits as well as different types of WMA additives were clearly identified as essential for a better understanding of the application of WMA technology in pavement constructions.
