The use of bituminous materials is mainly addressed to roads construction.


The asphalt, named also bitumen, is mainly composed by aggregates and binder, with an infinite variation of mixtures. It is therefore necessary to get suitable equipment to perform different test methods and to determine: binder content, internal friction, cohesion, consistency, softening point, viscosity, quality of aggregates, voids percentage, levels of compaction, stiffness modulus, fatigue resistance, Marshall test, and many other parameters.


The equipments described in this Section largely satisfy all these test procedures, conform to the new EN Standards on road materials tests, and replace those previous national Standards.
