CEN/TC 227 Road materials

European Norm


This part of this European Standard specifies a method to determine the binder drainage of a bituminous mixture. The method is stated for type testing purposes. It can be used either determining the binder drainage for different binder contents, or with a single binder content, eliminating the successive repetitions. It can also be used for factory production control. It also enables the effects of varying fine aggregate types or including any anti- draining additive to be quantified. Although a single temperature is included in the test method it could be carried out at more than one temperature.
