    WK65231

    1. Scope

    Determination of the Flash and Fire Points of Asphalt by a Manual or Automated Cleveland Open Cup (COC) apparatus. Test Method is applicable to asphalts that can form a skin, and those that do not form a skin during heat treatment.


    Keywords

    skin

    Rationale

    No standard test method exists for an appropriate determination of the Flash and Fire Points of Asphalts, especially those that form a skin during the COC test. Anyone who needs to test for the Flash and Fire Points of Asphalt samples - skin-forming or non-skin-forming types - by either manual or automated apparatus, would be able to apply this Method and benefit from its safety-oriented outcome.
