In order to determine the characteristics of the asphalt in an asphalt paving mixture, it is necessary to extract the asphalt from the aggregate by means of a suitable solvent and then to recover the asphalt from the solvent without significantly changing the asphalt'properties. The asphalt recovered from the solvent by this practice can be tested using the same methods as for the original asphalt cement, and comparisons between the properties of the original and recovered asphalt can be made.View Less
1.1 This practice is intended to recover asphalt from a solvent using the rotary evaporator to ensure that changes in the asphalt properties during the recovery process are minimized.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information only.
1.3 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.
