Scope

This European Standard specifies a method for measuring the pH value of bituminous emulsions.

It is applicable to anionic, cationic bituminous emulsions and bituminous emulsions prepared by means of non – ionic surfactant.

NOTE In certain circumstances, the pH value can provide an indication of the ionic character of a bitumen emulsion. However, this indication should be confirmed by a particle polarity test conforming to EN 1430 [1].
