This document specifies a method for measuring the pH value of bituminous emulsions.
It is applicable to anionic, cationic bituminous emulsions and bituminous emulsions prepared by means of non-ionic surfactant.
In certain circumstances, the pH value can provide an indication of the ionic character of a bituminous emulsion. However, this indication should be confirmed by a particle polarity test conforming to EN 1430 .
