    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covered determination of the degree of solubility of asphalt binders in toluene using centrifugal separation.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D04 on Road and Paving Materials, this test method was withdrawn in October 2017 and replaced by Test Method D2042 on the Solubility of Asphalt Materials in Trichloroethylene.1

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers determination of the degree of solubility of asphalt binders in toluene using centrifugal separation. The method is an alternative to Test Method D 2042, and may be preferable to Test Method D 2042 when testing modified asphalt binders.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.3 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.

    1.4 A complete precision statement for this standard has not been developed at this time. Therefore, this standard should not be used for acceptance or rejection of a material for purchasing purposes.

    1.5 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.
