The advantages of SMA with cellulose oil palm fibers are:
* Increased life span of pavement up to 2 times the conventional pavement
* The overall cost of SMA pavement including construction is much cheaper than other types of pavements
* Lower tire-pavement noise ??? 5 ??? 10 dBA
* Higher texture depth which better tire grip
* The latest research with COPF in SMA showed remarkable performance in resisting cracks which are quantified in terms of Crack Meandering and Sustenance Ratio.
