New European Asphalt Standards

Robert Gossling / Bob Overett September 07 - NEW ASPHALT STANDARDS 1 JAN 2008

What's happening? From 1 January 2008 specifications for asphalt will change Out go BS4987 and BS594 product standards And in come European standards BS EN13108 parts 1 to 8, 21 and 22 PLUS BS 594987 for transport and installation With PD 6691, the UK guidance document The SHW, test methods and other standards ALL change at the same time

Robert Gossling / Bob Overett September 07 - NEW ASPHALT STANDARDS 1 JAN 2008

What does this mean for contracting/ installers/ customers?

They order a product to BS EN 13108 There is no need to be supply plant specific with the order They install the product to BS 594987/ SHW/ Defence Estates specs/ other specs BS594987 becomes the reference spec for installation together with PD 6691, the UK guidance document

BS EN 13108 family of standards


BS EN 13108 - 1 BS EN 13108 - 2 BS EN 13108 - 3 BS EN 13108 - 4 BS EN 13108 - 5 BS EN 13108 - 6 BS EN 13108 - 7 BS EN 13108 - 8 asphalt concrete asphalt concrete for very thin layers soft asphalt (Nordic countries) hot rolled asphalt stone mastic asphalt mastic asphalt porous asphalt reclaimed asphalt

BS EN 13108 - 20 type testing BS EN 13108 - 21 factory production control (Products in bold text are available from Lafarge)

Robert Gossling / Bob Overett September 07 - NEW ASPHALT STANDARDS 1 JAN 2008

BS EN 13108 key differences Covers only the product in the truck, not the installation Now a target composition rather than a recipe approach Compliance tolerances are given in FPC (EN 13108 : 21) Binder content is adjusted for aggregate density No corrections for binder or filler content in base/ binder courses it is target +/- the tolerance

Robert Gossling / Bob Overett September 07 - NEW ASPHALT STANDARDS 1 JAN 2008

BS EN 13108 key differences More rigorous product conformity Q-Value replaced with Operating Compliance Level (OCL) Introduces a mean deviation from target (Product Consistency) Still tested and reported by technical

Attestation of Conformity is required by the Producer External accreditation still required (ISO 9001:2000) for Factory Production Control (FPC) and Sector Scheme 14. Products require Initial Type Testing before they can go on sale

PD 6691:2007 Each product will have a nominated target composition to which conformance tolerances will be applied Binder content - its expression and the method of calculation based on the relative density of aggregate back calculation formula Annexes - give detailed information and guidance in the form of examples on product specifications Annex A1 Asphaltic Concrete and replaces BS4987 Annex A2 Hot Rolled Asphalt and replaces BS594 Annex A5 Stone Mastic Asphalt

PD 6691:2007

Use of Reclaimed asphalt Classification system used in EN 13108-8 for foreign matter and binder properties Recommended maximum of 10% in S/C and 50% in bases and binder courses More than 10% in S/C & more than 20% in bases and binder courses - recovered binder from the mixture - penetration testing
