This European Standard specifies a method for the determination of the loss in mass of industrial bitumen after heating. The method is used to detect volatile components.

NOTE The users of the method are encouraged to gather comparative information on binders using this standard, EN 13303 and EN 12607-2 [1] at 163 °C to facilitate the withdrawal of EN 13303 at the next systematic review.

WARNING — The use of this standard may involve hazardous materials, operations and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
