Standard Method of Test for Quantitative Extraction of Asphalt Binder from Hot-Mix Asphalt (HMA)
standard by American Association of State and Highway Transportation Officials, 08/01/2008



These methods cover the quantitative determination of asphalt binder in paving mixtures and pavement samples. Aggregate obtained by these methods may be used for sieve analysis using T 30.

Note–The results obtained by these methods may be affected by the age of the material tested, with older samples tending to yield slightly lower asphalt binder contents. Best quantitative results are obtained when the test is made on HMA mixtures and pavements shortly after their preparation. It is difficult to remove all the asphalt binder when some aggregates are used; some solvent may remain within the mineral matter affecting the measured asphalt binder content.
