    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide covers the physical and chemical requirements of virgin or recovered foundry sand for use as a fine aggregate in asphalt mixtures.

    1.2 This guide is for use by contractors, foundry sand suppliers, or other purchasers as part of the purchase document describing the material to be furnished. Those responsible for selecting the proportions for the asphalt mixture should have the responsibility of determining the proportions of foundry sand as a fine aggregate.

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

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

    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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
