ASTM WK39503

    Work Item: ASTM WK39503 - Revision of D2027 / D2027M - 10 Standard Specification for Cutback Asphalt (Medium-Curing Type)

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D2027 / D2027M - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: D04.40 | Committee D04 | Contact Staff Manager



    1. Rationale

    The implementation of Low Sulfur Diesel Fuels and the general changes within fuel industries and manufacturing processes has driven a noticed change in cutter properties and availabilities. Three aspects of Standard D2027/D2027M-10 have been determined by Subcommittee D04.40 to need review/revision. The aspects will be balloted separately. This item is the first of the three aspects: Replacing the Tag Open-Cup Flash Point with the DOT recognized Pensky Martin Closed Cup test. Surveys were conducted and input solicitated to determine appropriate ranges based on current MC cutback data. Table 1 displays the recommended PMCC minimum values. This is the only section for review for this ballot item.
