ASTM WK44189

    New Test Method for Determination of the Apparent Viscosity of Thermoplastic Pavement Marking Materials using a Rotational Viscometer with Temperature Control Heating Unit

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D01.44 | Committee D01 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    The scope of this work item is to standardize the sample preparation and testing of road marking thermoplastic using a Brookfield type viscometer.


    Road Marking Thermoplastic, Road Marking, Viscosity, Brookfield, Spindle, Centipoise.


    The road marking thermoplastic industry uses viscosity occasionally as a QA /QC method but no detailed standardization of methodology exists. Manufacturers of road marking thermoplastic and Department of transportation end users will be using this method to qualify these types of products.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
