Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers fine aggregate for use in bituminous paving mixtures. The aggregate shall be sampled to meet the requirements prescribed. Grading, fineness modulus and plasticity index shall be tested to meet the requirements prescribed.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers fine aggregate for use in bituminous paving mixtures.
1.2 This specification is intended to describe material from a single source. When material from two or more sources is to be blended to produce a grading to meet requirements in other specifications for bituminous paving mixtures, the grading requirements of Table 1 of this specification are not applicable.
Note 1— When obtaining materials from two or more sources that are to be blended to produce the final mix, it is recommended that the specifying or the ordering agency specify the alternative gradings and blend ratios to be supplied.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. Inch-pound units, shown in parentheses, are for information only.
1.4 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.
