This document specifies a method for the determination of the staining tendency of bitumen.
This method is applicable to bitumen having a Ring-and-Ball softening point greater than or equal to 80 °C. For softer bitumen, the test conditions may be modified by agreement between the involved parties.
The procedure described in this document may be used to compare results against a material for which the staining tendency is known.
NOTE Staining properties are related to the colloidal stability of the bitumen with higher values indicating lower stability.
