    Withdrawn Rationale:

    These test methods cover procedures for sampling and testing emulsified bitumens used in relatively thick films as protective coatings for metals, built-up roofs, and bituminous pavements.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D08 on Roofing and Waterproofing, these test methods were withdrawn in July 2012 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods cover procedures for sampling and testing emulsified bitumens used in relatively thick films as protective coatings for metals, built-up roofs, and bituminous pavements.

    1.2 The test methods appear in the following order:

    Volatiles9
    Ash Content10
    Water Content11
    Flash Point12
    Drying Time13
    Resistance to Heat14
    Resistance to Water15
    Flexibility16
    Tests used primarily for coatings used over metals and built-up roofs
    Brush-Application Behavior17
    Spray-Application Behavior18
    Wet Flow19
    Direct Flame Test20
    Solubility of Residue in Trichloroethylene21
    Tests used primarily for coatings used over bituminous pavements
    Wet Film Continuity22
    Resistance to Volatilization23
    Solubility of Residue in Carbon Disulfide24
    Resistance to Kerosine25
    Resistance to Impact26
    Resistance to Impact After Accelerated Weathering27
    Aggregate (Sand) Content in Bituminous Emulsions28
    Precision Bias29

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.

    1.4 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.
