• Loss on Heat / Thin Film Oven

Loss on Heat / Thin Film Oven



Determines the effect on asphaltic materials of heating in an oven under prescribed conditions. The results are reported in terms of change in sample mass and/or changes in selected properties such as viscosity, penetration and ductility as evidenced by test data taken before and after the oven cycle.

  • Conforms to ASTM D6, D1754; Specification E145, Type 1B; AASHTO T47, T179, BS2000
