    Significance and Use

    4.1 This test method indicates approximate change in properties of asphalt during conventional hot-mixing at about 302°F (150°C) as indicated by viscosity and other rheological measurements. It yields a residue which approximates the asphalt condition as incorporated in the pavement. If the mixing temperature differs appreciably from the 302°F (150°C) level, more or less effect on properties will occur. This test method also can be used to determine mass change, which is a measure of asphalt volatility.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method is intended to measure the effect of heat and air on a moving film of semi-solid asphaltic materials. The effects of this treatment are determined from measurements of the selected properties of the asphalt before and after the test.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
