AASHTO TP 91-11 (2013) Download


Standard Method of Test for Determining Asphalt Binder Bond Strength by Means of the Asphalt Bond Strength (ABS) Test
standard by American Association of State and Highway Transportation Officials, 2011



This test method quantifies the tensile force needed to remove a pullout stub adhered to a solid substrate with asphalt binder. Samples are prepared at controlled environmental (i.e., temperature and humidity) and moisture conditions. After conditioning, a pneumatic load is applied to a pullout stub using an ASTM D 4541 Type IV adhesion tester until failure. The pullout tension at failure is used to describe the adhesive properties of the asphalt binder and compatibility between aggregates and asphalt binders.
