A NEW METHOD FOR DETERMINING SOFTENING POINTS OF PITCHES, ASPHALTS, AND SIMILAR MATERIALS

A MORE RAPID, ACCURATE, AND PRECISE METHOD FOR MEASURING THE SOFTENING POINT OF PITCHES, ASPHALTS, AND SIMILAR MATERIALS HAS BEEN DEVELOPED THROUGH A MODIFICATION OF THE METTLER FP-3 UNIT. THE NEW TECHNIQUE COVERS A WIDER RANGE OF SOFTENING POINTS THAN ANY PRESENTLY USED STANDARD METHOD. THE INSTRUMENT MODIFICATION, THE EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUE, AND THE DATA OBTAINED DURING THE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS ARE DISCUSSED. /ASTM/
