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.
1.1 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.
