    ASTM D402

    Significance and Use

    This procedure measures the amount of the more volatile constituents in cutback asphaltic products. The properties of the residue after distillation are not necessarily characteristic of the bitumen used in the original mixture, nor of the residue which may be left at any particular time after field application of the cutback asphaltic product. The presence of silicone in the cutback may affect the distillation residue by retarding the loss of volatile material after the residue has been poured into the residue container.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers a distillation test for cutback asphaltic (bituminous) products.

    1.2 The values given in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are for information only.

    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.
