New Test Method for Asphalt Fractionation by Thin Layer Chromatography-Flame Ionization Detector

1. Scope

Develop a standard method to measure asphalt SARA (saturate, aromatics, resins & asphaltene) fractions with Iatroscan


asphalt binder; SARA fractions; Iatroscan; thin layer chromatography; flame ionization detector - FID


Iatroscan is an equipment used to determine SARA fractions of asphalt, but the method & procedure by which sample is run & data analyzed is not standardized in the industry.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
