Asphalt Mixture Composition Analysis

icon youtube

The determination of bitumen & binder content in asphalt mixture is a critical parameter for QC/QA, design and research. The most common methods are solvent extraction and ignition method. IPC Global’s testing systems include both standard hot and cold solvent extractors, similar to centrifuges, and fully automatic systems such as the closed loop extractor PAVELAB50 and the ignition oven BITUMAX.
