Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 May 2007
Status: inactive
Page Count: 6
ICS Code (Binders. Sealing materials): 91.100.50
ICS Code (Road construction materials): 93.080.20
significance And Use:

Asphalt and pitch do not go through a solid-liquid phase change when heated, and therefore do not have true melting points. As the temperature is raised, they gradually soften or become less... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method covers the determination of the softening point of asphalt and pitch in the range from 50 to 180C by the cup-and-ball apparatus, and gives results comparable to those obtained by Test Method D 36. Note 1 - If the softening point of asphalt by this Mettler cup-and-ball method fails to meet specified requirements, tests may be rerun using the Test Method D 36 (ring-and-ball) softening point apparatus as a referee method.
