Scope

This European Standard provides a framework for specifying a range of properties and relevant test methods for bitumens, which are suitable for use in the construction and maintenance of roads, airfields and other paved areas, together with requirements for evaluation of conformity.
This European Standard does not directly address ‘cohesion, adhesion and setting ability’ (see Introduction).
NOTE Although industrial bitumens are specified according to EN 13305, it should be underlined that paving grade bitumens, specified according to this European Standard, can also be used for industrial applications.
