Significance and Use
This test method is useful in confirming that a material has been added to the asphalt to provide a significant elastomeric characteristic. It does not necessarily identify the type or amount of material added.
1.1 This test method covers the elastic recovery of a bituminous material measured by the recoverable strain determined after severing an elongated briquet specimen of the material of the form described in . The specimens are pulled to a specified distance at a specified speed and at a specified temperature. Unless otherwise specified, the test shall be made at a temperature of 25 0.5°C (77 0.9°F) and with a speed of 5 cm/min 5 %.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. Values in parentheses in inch-pound units are provided for informational purposes only.
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.
