Customary tests (infiltration, malleability, and relaxing point) and a unique shear rheometer were utilized to describe the physical and rheological properties of black-top fastener (DSR). Calcium carbonate nanoparticles (CaCO3) and aluminum hydro oxide (Al2O3) nanoparticles were acquainted with the fundamental black-top at groupings of 3, 5, and 7% by weight of black-top, separately, in this examination. The expansion of CaCO3 and Al2O3 content to the black-top significantly affects the actual properties of the black-top, with infiltration decreased by up to half for CaCO3 changed black-top and 64% for Al2O3 altered black-top. When contrasted with the base black-top folio, the conditioning point of altered black-top covers expanded by 11 and 12 percent for the two modifiers, separately. The outcomes likewise uncovered that the capacity soundness of changed black-top folios containing CaCO3 and Al2O3 nanoparticles was under 2.5 °C, showing that the black-top fastener and modifiers are exceptionally viable. The solidness (G*) of changed black-top covers was improved with the expansion of the two modifiers, and the best presentation of black-top fastener was gotten with the expansion of 5% of both nanoparticles. Subsequently, the utilization of CaCO3 and Al2O3 nanoparticles as an elective added substance to change black-top folio can be thought of.
