Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 10 December 1999
Status: inactive
Page Count: 4
ICS Code (Workplace atmospheres): 13.040.30
scope:

1.1 This test method covers the determination of asphalt fume particulate matter(as benzene soluble fraction) and total particulate matter weight in workplace atmospheres using a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) filter methodology.

1.2 This procedure has been adapted from NIOSH Method 5023 (withdrawn prior to 4th edition (1994) and replaced in 1998 with NIOSH Method 5042) and OSHA Method 58 to reduce the level of background contamination providing better reproducibility.

1.3 This procedure is compatible with high flow rate personal sampling equipment-0.5 to 2.0 L/min. It can be used for personnel or area monitoring.

1.4 The sampling method develops a time-weighted average (TWA) sample and can be used to determine short-term exposure limit (STEL).

1.5 The applicable concentration range for the TWA sample is from 0.2 to 2.0 mg/m3.

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.
