This practice covers the process of taking field measurements between 50 to 220C [122 to 428F] of the temperature of asphalt mixtures using hand-held devices during production, storage, transport, laydown and compaction of asphalt mixtures.
There is currently not a standard in ASTM that describes these activities. This standard would be beneficial to asphalt mixture producers and field-paving technicians as a method to measure the temperature with hand-held devices, such as infrared non-contact or direct contact methods, for quality control.
