This document specifies a method for the determination of the kinematic viscosity of bituminous binders
at 60 °C and 135 °C, in a range from 6 mm2/s to 300 000 mm2/s. Other temperatures are possible if
calibration constants are known. Bituminous emulsions are not covered within the scope of this method.
Results for this method can be used to calculate dynamic viscosity when the density of the test material
is known or can be determined.
NOTE This document assumes Newtonian behaviour of the sample at test conditions.
WARNING — The use of this document can involve hazardous materials, operations and equipment. This
document does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. It is the
responsibility of the user of this document to identify the hazards and assess the risks involved in
performing this test method and to implement sufficient control measures to protect individual operators
(and the environment). This includes appropriate safety and health practices and determination of the
applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
