Significance of Needle Penetration measurement of Potting Glue (Automatic Method)
Pavement potting glue, specially used for road crack repair, is called pavement heated sealant (JT/T 740-2015) in the industry standard, and its main substrate is heavy road petroleum asphalt.
There are some differences between the three indexes of penetration, elongation and softening point of pavement pot-sealing sealant and road petroleum asphalt. The technical indexes of evaluation of pavement pot-sealing sealant are five indexes: conical penetration, softening point, flow value, elastic recovery rate and low temperature tensile.
By penetration extension, reference JTGF40-2004 of viscous nature of road asphalt technology and technical requirements, reflects the cone into the pavement potting glue viscosity, cone into the degree is higher, shows that the road potting glue viscosity is smaller, more adapt to the environment of low temperature region, appearance is shown as: in the same low temperature environment, cone into the degree, the smaller the value, The more brittle it is.
After rapidly releasing the cone (which should complete the falling action within 0.1 seconds) and maintaining it for 5 seconds, read out the cone depth in units of cone penetration, with 1 unit of cone penetration equal to 0.1mm. In order to ensure the comparability of the measurement results of different cones, the measured values of cone ⅱ and cone ⅲ should be converted into the estimated values of cone ⅰ according to the formula.
