This European Standard specifies a method for the determination of the kinematic viscosity of bituminous binders at 60 °C and 135 °C, in a range from 6 mm²/s to 300 000 mm²/s. Bituminous Emulsions are not covered within the scope of this method.

NOTE Emulsions containing bituminous binders are not considered to be covered by this method. The method can be used for anhydrous binders obtained from emulsions (stabilised and/or recovered binders).

Results for this method can be used to calculate dynamic viscosity when the density of the test material is known or can be determined.
