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

This European Standard specifies the properties of aggregates and filler aggregates obtained by processing natural or manufactured or recycled materials for use in bituminous mixtures and surface treatments for roads, airfields and other trafficked areas. This standard does not cover the use of reclaimed bituminous mixtures.
It provides for the evaluation of conformity of the products to this European Standard.
NOTE 1   The requirements in this European Standard are based upon experience with aggregate types with an established pattern of use. Care should be taken when considering the use of aggregates from sources with no such pattern of use, e.g., recycled aggregates and aggregates arising from certain industrial by-products. Such aggregates, which should comply with all the requirements of this European Standard, could have other characteristics not included in Mandate M 125 that do not apply to the generality of aggregates types with an established pattern of use and when required, provisions valid at the place of use can be used to assess their suitability.
NOTE 2   Properties for lightweight aggregates are specified in prEN 13055-2.

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

Diese Europäische Norm legt die Eigenschaften von Gesteinskörnungen und Füller fest, die durch Aufbereitung natürlicher, industriell hergestellter oder rezyklierter Materialien für die Verwendung in Asphalten und Oberflächenbehandlungen gewonnen werden. Diese Norm gilt nicht für die Verwendung von Ausbauasphalt.
Sie enthält Festlegungen für die Bewertung der Konformität von Produkten nach dieser Europäischen Norm.
ANMERKUNG 1   Die Anforderungen dieser Europäischen Norm basieren auf Erfahrungen mit Gesteinskörnungsarten, die sich in der Anwendung bewährt haben. Die Verwendung von Gesteinskörnungen aus Bezugsquellen ohne eine derartige Bewährung, wie z. B. von rezyklierten oder in einem industriellen Prozess entstandenen Gesteinskörnungen, sollte sorgfältig geprüft werden. Derartige Gesteinskörnungen könnten trotz Übereinstimmung mit sämtlichen Anforderungen dieser Europäischen Norm Eigenschaften besitzen, die nicht im Mandat M 125 erfasst sind und die nicht für die Gesamtheit der Gesteinskörnungsarten mit einer bewährten Anwendung gelten. Falls erforderlich, können für die Beurteilung ihrer Eignung die am jeweiligen Verwendungsort geltenden Vorschriften herangezogen werden.
ANMERKUNG 2   Die Eigenschaften von leichten Gesteinskörnungen sind in prEN 13055-2 festgelegt.

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

La présente Norme européenne spécifie les caractéristiques des granulats et des fillers élaborés a partir de  matériaux naturels, artificiels ou de recyclage afin d'etre incorporés dans les mélanges hydrocarbonés et les enduits superficiels utilisés dans la construction des chaussées, aérodromes et autres zones de circulation. La présente norme ne traite pas de l'utilisation d'agrégats recyclés.
Elle comprend l'évaluation de la conformité des produits a la présente Norme européenne.
NOTE 1   Les spécifications de la présente norme européenne sont fondées sur l'expérience acquise avec des types de granulats disposant d'un mode d'utilisation établi. Il convient de preter une attention particuliere aux granulats provenant de ressources ne bénéficiant pas d'une telle expérience, par exemple les granulats recyclés et les granulats issus de certains produits industriels dérivés. Ces granulats, qui doivent etre conformes a toutes les spécifications de cette norme européenne, pourraient avoir d'autres caractéristiques non mentionnées dans le mandat M 125 et ne s'appliquant pas a l'ensemble des types de granulats disposant d'un mode d'utilisation établi ; le cas échéant, des dispositions en vigueur sur le lieu d'utilisation  peuvent etre adoptées pour évaluer leur aptitude a l'emploi.
NOTE 2   Les caractéristiques des granulats légers sont spécifiées dans le prEN 13055-2.

EN 13043:2002 (E)164.2.7 Particle density and water absorption4.2.7.1 Particle densityThe particle density shall be determined in accordance with EN 1097-6:2000, clause 7, 8 or 9, depending upon thesize of the aggregate, and the results declared.4.2.7.2 Water absorptionThe water absorption shall be determined in accordance with EN 1097-6:2000, clause 7, 8 or 9, depending uponthe size of the aggregate, and the results declared.4.2.8 Bulk densityWhen required, the bulk density shall be determined in accordance with EN 1097-3 and the results declared.4.2.9 Durability4.2.9.1 Water absorption value as a screening test for freeze-thaw resistanceWhen required the water absorption value as a screening test shall be determined in accordance with theprocedures specified in either EN 1097-6:2000, clause 7, or EN 1097-6:2000, annex B, declaring the result and thetest procedure used.NOTE

Selection of the water absorption test specified in EN 1097-6:2000, clause 7 or annex B is dependent upon the size ofthe aggregate.If the water absorption, determined in accordance with EN 1097-6:2000, clause 7, is not greater than the valueselected as one of the categories specified in Table 17, the aggregate shall be assumed to befreeze-thaw resistant.Table 17 — Categories for maximum values of water absorption (EN 1097-6:2000, clause 7)Water absorptionPercentage by massCategoryWA24WA241WA242NOTE

The water absorption test is not applicable forblastfurnace slag.If the water absorption, determined in accordance with EN 1097-6:2000, annex B, is not greater than the maximumvalue of 0,5 specified in Table 18 the aggregate shall be assumed to be freeze-thaw resistant.Table 18 — Categories for maximum values of water absorption(EN 1097-6:2000, annex B)Water absorptionPercentage by massCategoryWcm£ 0,5Wcm0,5NOTE The water absorption test is not applicable for blastfurnace slag.
