AASHTO T 383
Standard Method of Test for Evaluation of Asphalt Release Agents (ARAs)
|Publication Date:||1 January 2019|
This method covers the laboratory performance evaluation of asphalt release agents (ARAs). These ARAs are used for coating metal on truck beds, pavers, rollers, slat elevators, and hand tools to prevent asphalt binder or hot mix asphalt (HMA) from adhering. The ARAs should perform this function without causing degradation (stripping) of the HMA.
