Standard Practice for Determining Asphalt Volume Correction to a Base Temperature


1.1 This practice provides tables of volume correction factors which may be used to convert volumes of asphalt measured at different temperatures to a volume at a standard base temperature. These tables are applicable to all types of asphalts except emulsified asphalts.

1.2 This practice provides tables to convert asphalt volumes to 15°C or 60°F from volumes measured at any temperature from -25 to +275°C or 0 to 500°F.

1.3 The conversions from the two tables are not equivalent because the temperatures of 15°C and 60°F that they are based on are not equal.

Note 1—Correction factors in Tables 1 and 2 are for use in place of correction factors provided in Guide D 1250, which do not address requirements for asphalt specifications.
