    Significance and Use

    Values of density are used for converting volumes to units of mass, and for correcting measured volumes from the temperature of measurement to a standard temperature using Practice D 4311.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the density of semi-solid and solid bituminous materials by weighing in air and in water.

    Note 1—An alternate method for determining the density of semi-solid and solid bituminous materials is Test Method D 70. For materials which are too fluid for use of this method, use Test Method D 3142.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to the regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address 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.
