Kumagawa LCPC | Binder extraction from pavements

The test consists of determining the binder content of a test portion of coated materials comprising the following basic operations: (1) Extraction of the binder by dissolution in a cold or hot solvent, (2) Separation of the mineral matter and binder solution, (3) Determination of the amount of binder by difference or recovery of the binder, (4) Calculation of the content of soluble binder.

The particularity of the LCPC model comes from the addition of a Dean Stark collector making it possible to collect and measure the quantity of water contained in the sample subjected to extraction. The Dean Stark collector will be round bottom or with a glass tap, as desired.
