K84000 Automatic Ductility of Bituminous Materials


Test Method
Measures the distance of elongation of a bitumen sample when a briquet specimen is pulled apart at a specified speed and temperature.

Features and Benefits
• Conforms to ASTM D113, P226 and related test specifications



K84000 Automatic Ductility of Bituminous Materials
The Automatic Tensile Stress Apparatus measures the ductility of bituminous materials immersed in water on up to three samples simultaneously. The instrument features a microprocessor-controlled drive unit with a stepping motor and feed rod providing a force of up to 200N, an elongation capacity of 150cm, a double-walled stainless steel tempering bath with circulation system, and a microprocessor-based control unit for setting test parameters and displaying measured test values such as traction speed, tensile force, and distance. An RS-232 interface provides test data export to an external printer, and a Ductility Windows® Software Package is available for data graphing, manipulation, and storage. For the determining the tensile properties of polymer-modified bitumens, an elastic recovery test method according to ASTM P226 is also available on the Automatic Tensile Stress Apparatus. Order external circulator separately.

Conforms to the specifications of: ASTM D113, D6084, P226; DIN 53013; EN 13398; NF T 66-006
