Standard Test Method for Bitumen and Aggregate Content of Bitumen-Aggregate Mixtures From Roofing Samples

Significance and Use

This test method offers a convenient alternative to solvent extraction for the approximate determination of top-coating bitumen and adhered aggregate in roofing samples, particularly when the bitumen is coal tar pitch.


1.1 This test method covers the determination of the bitumen content of adhered aggregate surfacing on a roof, and the approximate mass per unit area of the flood coat and adhered aggregate.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.

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