Significance and Use
4.1 In order to determine the characteristics of the asphalt in an asphalt paving mixture, it is necessary to extract the asphalt from the aggregate by means of a suitable solvent and then to recover the asphalt from the solvent without significantly changing the asphalt's properties. The asphalt recovered from the solvent by this practice can be tested using the same methods as for the original asphalt cement, and comparisons between the properties of the original and recovered asphalt can be made.
1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
