Description / Abstract:

This test method covers the determination of the softening point of asphalt and pitch in the range from 50 °C to 180 °C by the cup-and-ball apparatus, and gives results comparable to those obtained by Test Method D36.

NOTE 1—If the softening point of asphalt by this Mettler cup-and-ball method fails to meet specified requirements, tests may be rerun using the Test Method D36 (ring-and-ball) softening point apparatus as a referee method.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
