Standard Test Method for Bitumen Content

Abstract

This test method covers the determination of bitumen content in materials containing at least 25 % bitumen. The sample shall be representative, and if it contains more than 2 % of water it shall be dehydrated. The procedures for the determination of bitumen content in materials are presented in details.

Scope

1.1 This test method covers the determination of bitumen content in materials containing at least 25 % bitumen. Bitumen content may usually be expeditiously and accurately determined by Procedure No. 1, Section 7. However, some bituminous materials containing finely divided mineral matter may clog the filter or the mineral residue may not be easily retained, in which cases Procedure No. 2, Section 8, shall be followed.

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 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 and regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific precautionary information, see Section 4.

1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
