Standard Test Method for Type A Durometer Hardness Testing of Thermoplastic Pavement Marking at Elevated Temperatures
|Publication Date:||1 June 2017|
|ICS Code (Road equipment and installations):||93.080.30|
This test method covers Type A Durometer hardness of thermoplastic pavement marking material at elevated temperatures.
This test method is similar to Test Method D2240 for hardness with special attention given to keeping the temperature of the test sample and instrument constant. Within the highway materials community, it is sometimes known as "indentation resistance."
All materials, instruments or equipment used for the determination of temperature, hardness and time shall be traceable to National Institute of Standards and Technology or other internationally recognized organizations parallel in nature.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
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 of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
