AASHTO T 59 – Standard Method of Test for Emulsified Asphalts

These test methods, given under the headings titled Composition, Consistency, Stability, and Examination of Residue, cover the examination of asphalt emulsions composed principally of a semisolid or liquid asphalt base, water, and an emulsifying agent. The methods cover the following tests:

  • Calibration, Standardization, and Check
  • Sample Conditioning
  • Composition:
    • Water Content
    • Residue and Oil Distillate by Distillation
    • Identification of Oil Distillate by Micro Distillation
    • Residue by Evaporation
    • Particle Charge of Cationic Emulsified Asphalts
  • Consistency:
    • Viscosity (Saybolt Furol)
  • Stability:
    • Demulsibility
    • Settlement
    • Cement Mixing
    • Sieve Test
    • Coating
    • Miscibility with Water
    • Freezing
    • Coating Ability and Water Resistance
    • Storage Stability of Asphalt Emulsion
  • Examination of Residue
  • Identification Test for Rapid Setting Cationic Emulsified Asphalt
  • Identification of Cationic Slow Set Emulsions
