    New Specification for Polymer Modified Emulsions

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D04.41 | Committee D04 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK68124

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers polymer modified emulsions for use in pavement construction in the manner designated. 1.2 Units--The values stated in SI units are the standard. 1.3 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. NOTE 1--The quality of results produced by this standard is dependent on the competence of the personnel performing the procedure and the capability calibration and maintenance of the equipment used. Agencies that meet the criteria of Practice D3666 are generally considered capable of competent and objective testing/sampling/inspection and so forth. Users of this specification are cautioned that compliance with Practice D3666 alone does not completely assure reliable results. Reliable results depend on many factors; following the suggestions of Practice D3666 or some similar acceptable guidance provide a means of evaluating and controlling some of those factors.

    cationic polymer emulsions; high-float polymer emulsions

    Rationale

    There is no current specification in ASTM for polymer modified emulsions. This would standards specifications for the user to include in a buy sell agreement.

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