Standard Test Method for Solubility of Asphalt Materials in Trichloroethylene
|Publication Date:||10 December 2001|
|ICS Code (Waxes, bituminous materials and other petroleum products):||75.140|
significance And Use:
This test method is a measure of the solubility of asphalt in trichloroethylene. The portion that is soluble in trichloroethylene represents the active cementing constituents.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the degree of solubility in trichloroethylene of asphalt materials having little or no mineral matter.
Note 1-Use of carbon disulfide, carbon tetrachloride, and benzene has been discontinued in this method because of the safety hazards involved. This method is not applicable to tars and their distillation residues or highly cracked petroleum products. For methods covering tars, pitches, and other highly cracked petroleum products, and the use of other solvents, see Test Methods D 4, D 2318, and D 2764.
1.2 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. Specific precaution statements are given in Section 7.
