This document specifies a method for the recovery of binder from a bituminous emulsion or from a cut-back or fluxed bitumen after conditioning at ambient temperature for 24 h followed by 24 h at 50 °C, in such a way that will enable further testing with minimum changes of the binder characteristics.
It applies to all types of bituminous emulsions, modified with polymers or non-modified, as well as to all types of cut-back and fluxed bitumen, both modified with polymers and non-modified.
For cut-back and fluxed bituminous binders, this test method is only an intermediate step and should be followed by the stabilisation procedure specified by EN 13074-2. Direct testing of the recovered binder is however used to evaluate the setting ability of fluxed bituminous binders made with vegetal fluxes.

This European Standard specifies a quick method for determining, by evaporation, the water content of bituminous road emulsions, with or without polymer added.
For bituminous emulsions without flux oil, bituminous emulsions containing vegetal flux oil, and bituminous emulsions containing up to 1,5 % mass of mineral flux oil in the emulsion, this European Standard, according to the selected operating conditions, is considered as an alternative method to the reference method EN 1428 [1].
Above a mineral flux oil content of 1,5 % by mass, depending on the volatility of the flux oil:
-   the present method can be used up to a flux oil content above 1,5 % by mass if the user can prove its reliability in comparison to EN 1428.
-   the present method can only be used by correcting the result by means of a previously established correlation with the reference method EN 1428.
NOTE   Polymer modified emulsions can behave differently in the test than unmodified emulsions; in case of doubt, the method is checked against EN 1428.
In case of dispute, the water content should be determined according to EN 1428.

This part of EN 12607 specifies a method for measuring the combined effects of heat and air on a thin moving film of bitumen or bituminous binder simulating the hardening which most bituminous binders undergo during mixing in an asphalt mixing plant.
The method described is not applicable to some modified binders or to those where the viscosity is too high to provide a moving film. In some cases the sample may creep out of the glass container and flow on the heating elements of the oven during testing. The method is suitable for other bituminous binders than paving grade bitumen, but the reference temperature might give excessive hardening that do not resemble real conditions during mixing at the plant. The method may not represent the hardening that occurs during mixing of warm mix binders.
The method is referred to as RTFOT, i.e. Rolling Thin Film Oven Test.

This European Standard defines terms for paving or industrial bitumen of various types and binders derived from bitumen.
This European Standard is intended to cover materials only within the scope of CEN/TC 336, i.e. only bitumens and bituminous binders. It should consequently not extend to non-petroleum "hydrocarbon" binders such as coal tar and its derivatives or to natural asphalts. However, some definitions are given for some excluded materials and related terms. The corresponding terms were introduced only when they appeared in a definition of a product or process and when their definition was found necessary for understanding or for avoiding any ambiguity.
The materials covered by this European Standard are shown in Figure 1.
NOTE   Figure 1 also shows a clear distinction between materials inside and outside the scope of CEN/TC 336.

NOTE   For binders to be used in hot asphalt applications, the pre-conditioning of the sample would typically be done using one of the methods in the EN 12607 series. For binders to be used in bituminous emulsion and cut-back or fluxed applications, the stabilising of the sample should be such that there are no volatiles remaining.
WARNING — The use of this European Standard can involve hazardous materials, operations and equipment, in particular, the use of a high pressure ageing vessel. This European Standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this European Standard to establish appropriate health and safety practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. If there is the likelihood of volatile components being present in a binder, this procedure shall not be used.

This European standard specifies a number of methods using a dynamic shear rheometer (DSR) capable of measuring the rheological properties of bituminous binders. The procedure involves determining the complex shear modulus and phase angle of binders over a range of test frequencies and test temperatures when tested in oscillatory shear.
From the test, the norm of the complex shear modulus, IG*I, and its phase angle, δ, at a given temperature and frequency can be calculated, as well as the components G', G'', J' and J'' of the complex shear modulus and of the complex compliance.
This method is applicable to un-aged, aged and recovered bituminous binders, cut-backs and bituminous binders stabilised from emulsions.

This European Standard specifies a method for visualisation of the polymer distribution in polymer modified bitumen by fluorescent microscopy.
The method is applicable for most of the commercially used polymers, but before the method is used it should be examined whether the test is applicable for the actual polymer.
The method should only be used for identification purposes, i.e. in connection with production control.
NOTE   Sample preparation and treatment have an important influence on the test results and it is essential to follow strictly the method described to achieve comparable results.

This European Standard provides a framework for specifying the characteristics and relevant test methods for polymer modified bitumens which are suitable for use in the construction and maintenance of roads, airfields and other paved areas.
This framework covers the following characteristics:
-   "consistency at intermediate service temperature";
-   "consistency at elevated service temperature";
-   "cohesion";
-   "durability" of consistency;
-   "brittleness at low service temperature";
-   "strain recovery".
The cohesion property has been included as a means of discriminating between polymer modified bitumens and other bituminous binders. The other essential requirements, "adhesion" and "setting ability" are indicated by tests carried out on the finished asphalt mixtures.
The introduction of classes of convenience in Table 1, Table 2 and Table 3 enables the selection of the most suitable specification for the bitumen taking account of local conditions of climate and use. The nomenclature of polymer modified bitumens comprises the penetration range and the minimum softening point (see example in Annex A).

This document specifies a method for the determination of the staining tendency of bitumen.
This method is applicable to bitumen having a Ring-and-Ball softening point greater than or equal to 80 °C. For softer bitumen, the test conditions may be modified by agreement between the involved parties.
The procedure described in this document may be used to compare results against a material for which the staining tendency is known.
NOTE   Staining properties are related to the colloidal stability of the bitumen with higher values indicating lower stability.

This European standard specifies a procedure for determining the specific gravity and density of bituminous binders at (25,0 ± 0,2) °C using the capillary-stoppered pyknometer method. Emulsions are excluded from the scope of this method.
NOTE 1   This method can also be used for other hydrocarbon binders, for bituminous binders from other sources, e.g. recovered from asphalt or after hardening and for bituminous binders containing filler. However, a lower precision is to be expected.
NOTE 2   This test method may be performed at other temperatures (i.e. 15 °C). When doing so, the density values of water and isopropanol should be determined.
The pyknometer method shall be used as a reference method for determining the specific gravity and density of bituminous binders.
