THE INTERLABORATORY PRECISION OF THE PENETRATION TEST FOR PAVING BITUMENS WHEN THE TEST IS DONE AT 15 C WITH A 200G LOAD AND A 60S LOADING TIME

The penetration test at 15 C using a 200 g mass and a 60 S loading time has been included in a new saa specification for paving bitumens. To obtain an estimate of the interlaboratory precision of this method of penetration testing, arrb arranged for tests to be done in 12 laboratories on samples of paving bitumens which are representative of the four viscosity grades proposed in the new specification. The test results and an analysis of them are given together with a tentative precision statement for the new saa specification. /Author/TRRL/
