Standard Method of Test for Determining the Cracking Temperature of Asphalt Binder Using the Asphalt Binder Cracking Device (ABCD)
|Publication Date:||1 January 2014|
This test method covers the determination of cracking temperatures of asphalt binders by the means of an Asphalt Binder Cracking Device (ABCD). This device can be used with unaged material or with material aged using T 240 (RTFOT) or R 28 (PAV), or both. The test apparatus is designed for testing a cracking temperature in the range of -60 to +20°C.
