Aggregates for bituminous mixtures and surface treatments for roads, airfields and other trafficked areas

This document specifies the characteristics of aggregates and filler aggregates obtained by processing natural, manufactured or recycled materials and mixtures of these aggregates for use in bituminous mixtures and surface treatments for roads, airfields and other trafficked areas.
It covers aggregates having an oven-dried particle density greater than 2,00 Mg/m3. It also covers recycled and manufactured aggregates with particle densities greater than 1,50 Mg/m3.
NOTE 1   Assessment of the density of recycled aggregates is typically carried out on coarse fractions.
NOTE 2   Lightweight aggregates are specified in EN 13055.
This document does not cover the use of reclaimed bituminous mixtures (see NOTE 3).
Assessment and Verification of Constancy of Performance (AVCP) of aggregates to this document are given in EN 16236.
Aggregates used in construction are meant to comply with all the relevant European standards for aggregates. These standards include comprehensive and specific provisions for natural aggregates, manufactured aggregates and recycled aggregates, dealing with, for example, the stability of certain basalts and the expansion of certain slags.
NOTE 3   Reclaimed asphalt for use as a constituent of asphalt mixtures is specified in EN 13108-8 and is therefore not covered in this standard. EN 13108-8 does however call up the general provisions of EN 13043 for the aggregate component of reclaimed asphalt.

Gesteinskörnungen für Asphalt und Oberflächenbehandlung für Straßen, Flugplätze und andere Verkehrsflächen

Diese Europäische Norm legt die Merkmale von Gesteinskörnungen und Füllern fest, die durch Aufbereitung natürlicher, industriell hergestellter oder rezyklierter Materialien für die Verwendung in Asphalt und Oberflächenbehandlungen für Straßen, Flugplätze und andere Verkehrsflächen gewonnen werden.
Sie gilt für Gesteinskörnungen mit einer Trockenrohdichte größer 2,00 Mg/m3. Die Norm behandelt ebenfalls rezyklierte industriell hergestellte Gesteinskörnungen mit einer Rohdichte größer als 1,50 Mg/m3, wobei entsprechende Vorbehalte gelten (siehe Anhang A). Die Bewertung der Dichte rezyklierter Gesteins¬körnung erfolgt üblicherweise an groben Fraktionen.
ANMERKUNG 1   Zu Eigenschaften von leichten Gesteinskörnungen siehe prEN 13055.
Der Einsatz von Gesteinskörnungen als Boden wird in dieser Norm nicht behandelt.
ANMERKUNG 2   Wegen der großen Unterschiede in den geologischen und petrologischen Gegebenheiten in Europa, können genaue Definitionen zu Boden in Dokumenten gefunden werden, die sich mit ihrer Verwendung am jeweiligen Einsatzort befassen.
Diese Europäische Norm gilt nicht für die Verwendung von Ausbauasphalt (siehe ANMERKUNG 3).
Anhang A (normativ) enthält eine Liste von betrachteten Ausgangsstoffen, die in den Anwendungsbereich der Norm fallen.
Festlegungen hinsichtlich der Bewertung und Überprüfung der Leistungsbeständigkeit (AVCP) von Gesteins¬körnungen nach dieser Norm sind in EN 16236 zu finden.
Gesteinskörnungen für die Verwendung im Bauwesen müssen alle Anforderungen der einschlägigen Europäischen Normen zu Gesteinskörnungen erfüllen. Diese Normen legen allgemeine und besondere Anforderungen an natürliche Gesteinskörnungen, industriell hergestellte Gesteinskörnungen und rezyklierte Gesteinskörnungen, wie beispielsweise hinsichtlich der Stabilität bestimmter Arten von Basalt, des Ausdehnungsverhaltens bestimmter Schlacken und der Zusammensetzung rezyklierter Gesteins-körnungen fest.
ANMERKUNG 3   Da Anforderungen an Ausbauasphalt als Bestandteil von Asphaltmischungen in EN 13108-8 festgelegt werden, werden sie in dieser Norm nicht im Einzelnen behandelt. EN 13108-8 bezieht sich jedoch auf die allgemeinen Fest¬legungen für Gesteinskörnungen als Bestandteil von Ausbauasphalt nach EN 13043.

Granulats pour mélanges hydrocarbonés et pour enduits superficiels utilisés dans la construction des chaussées, aérodromes et autres zones de circulation

La présente Norme européenne spécifie les caractéristiques des granulats et des fillers élaborés à partir de matériaux naturels, artificiels ou de recyclage et des mélanges de ces granulats afin d'être incorporés dans les mélanges hydrocarbonés et les enduits superficiels utilisés dans la construction des chaussées, aérodromes et autres zones de circulation.
Elle s'applique aux granulats dont la masse volumique réelle des particules séchées à l’étuve est supérieure à 2,00 Mg/m3. Elle s'applique également aux gravillons recyclés et artificiels dont la masse volumique réelle est supérieure à 1,50 Mg/m3, avec les mises en garde appropriées (voir Annexe A). L’évaluation de la densité des granulats recyclés est typiquement effectuée sur les gravillons.
NOTE 1   Les caractéristiques des granulats légers sont spécifiées dans le prEN 13055.
L’utilisation des granulats en tant que sols n’est pas couverte par cette norme.
NOTE 2    En raison de l’importante variabilité des conditions géologiques et pédologiques en Europe, la définition précise du sol peut être trouvée dans les documents relatifs à l’application sur le lieu d’utilisation
La présente norme ne traite pas de l'utilisation de mélanges hydrocarbonés recyclés (voir NOTE 3).
Une liste des origines des matériaux qui ont été pris en considération et relèvent du domaine d'application de la présente norme est donnée à l'Annexe A (normative).
Les exigences relatives à l’Evaluation et la Vérification de la Constance des Performances (EVCP) des produits de cette norme européenne sont spécifiées dans le FprEN 16236.
Les granulats utilisés dans la construction doivent respecter toutes les exigences des Normes européennes concernées pour les granulats. Ces dernières contiennent les exigences générales et particulières relatives aux granulats naturels, artificiels et recyclés, et traitent par exemple de la stabilité de certains basaltes, de l'expansion de certains laitiers et de la composition des granulats recyclés.
NOTE 3   Les exigences sur les agrégats d’enrobés utilisés en tant que constituants des mélanges hydrocarbonés sont spécifiées dans l’EN 13108-8 et ne sont pas, par conséquent, couverts en détail par cette norme. L’EN 13108-8 fait, cependant, appel aux exigences générales de l’EN 13043 pour les granulats contenus dans les agrégats d’enrobés.

Foreword

This document (prEN 13043:2015) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 154 “Aggregates”,

the secretariat of which is held by BSI.
This document is currently submitted to the CEN Enquiry.
This document will supersede EN 13043:2002.

This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the

European Free Trade Association, and supports essential requirements of EU Directive(s).

For relationship with EU Directive(s), see informative Annex ZA, which is an integral part of this document.

The most significant technical changes compared to the previous edition include:

a) Harmonization of vocabulary and Annex ZA to be consistent with Construction Products Regulation;

b) Unification of categories which are common across the four main aggregate standards: EN 12620,

EN 13043, EN 13139 and EN 13242;

c) Description of assessment and verification of conformity of performance of aggregates (AVCP) — type

testing and factory production control in a separate new standard prEN 16236;

d) Implementing general sentences on dangerous substances and adding a new normative Annex A dealing

with all source materials considered;

e) Unification of definitions which are common across the four main aggregate standards: EN 12620,

EN 13043, EN 13139 and EN 13242, i.e. for coarse, fine, all-in aggregates and natural graded 0/8

aggregates;
f) Adding categories for the sand equivalent value for fines quality;
g) Adding categories for the methylene blue value for fines quality;
h) Adding categories for angularity and water suction height.
i) Inserting a new clause „General Requirements”

In this document the wordings ‘property’ and ‘characteristic’ have the same meaning.

Requirements for assessment and verification of constancy of performance are given in prEN 16236.

Requirements for other end uses of aggregates are specified in the following European Standards:

— prEN 12620, Aggregates for concrete
— prEN 13055, Lightweight aggregates
— prEN 13139, Aggregates for mortar

— prEN 13242, Aggregates for unbound and hydraulically bound materials for use in civil engineering work

and road construction

Note: Due to fact that the EC has not yet been able to confirm the financial commitment for the New

Approach Consultants’ work in 2015, there are currently no New Approach Consultants in place for 2015.

Therefore the provisions of CEN-CENELEC Guide 15 cannot be met.

This shall not prevent the processing of draft standards nor the offering of harmonized standards to the

European Commission. In particular, draft standards can be sent to vote without Consultant assessment.

This note will be removed from the Foreword of the finalized publication.

1 Scope

This European Standard specifies the properties of aggregates and filler aggregates obtained by processing

natural, manufactured or recycled materials and mixtures of these aggregates for use in bituminous mixtures

and surface treatments for roads, airfields and other trafficked areas.

It covers aggregates having an oven dried particle density greater than 2,00 Mg/m . It also covers coarse

recycled aggregates with particle densities greater than 1,50 Mg/m with appropriate caveats and recycled

fine aggregate with appropriate caveats (see Annex A).
NOTE 1 Requirements for lightweight aggregates are specified in prEN 13055.

This European Standard does not cover the use of reclaimed bituminous mixtures (see NOTE 2).

A list of the source materials that have been considered and indicating those which are within the scope of this

European Standard is given in Annex A (normative).

Requirements for the Assessment and Verification of the Constancy of Performance (AVCP) of aggregates to

this European Standard are given in prEN 16236.

Aggregates used in construction shall conform with all the requirements of the relevant European Standards

for aggregates. These standards include comprehensive and specific requirements for natural aggregates,

iron and steel making slag and recycled aggregates, dealing with, for example, the stability of certain basalts,

the expansion of certain slags and the constitution of recycled aggregates.

NOTE 2 Requirements for reclaimed asphalt for use as a constituent of asphalt mixtures are specified in prEN 13108-8

and are therefore not covered in detail in this standard. prEN 13108-8 does however call up the general requirements of

prEN 13043 for the aggregate component of reclaimed asphalt.

NOTE 3 Guidance on selection of appropriate categories for specific applications can be found in national provisions in

the place of use of the aggregate.
