Significance and Use

These tests are useful in evaluating and characterizing coal tar emulsion and other bituminous emulsions to establish uniformity of shipments.


1.1 These test methods cover procedures for sampling and testing emulsified bitumens used in relatively thick films as protective coatings for metals, built-up roofs, and bituminous pavements.

1.2 The test methods appear in the following order:
