1.1 This specification covers fine aggregate for use in asphalt paving mixtures.

1.2 This specification is intended to describe material from a single source. When material from two or more sources is to be blended to produce a grading to meet requirements in other specifications for asphalt paving mixtures, the grading requirements of Table 1 of this specification are not applicable.
