Standard Specification for Aramid Fiber in Asphalt Mixtures
Elevating Construction Quality with Precision and Compliance
At Surface Tech we are committed to upholding the highest standards in construction quality. In line with this commitment, we are proud to embrace the newly introduced ASTM D8395−23 standard, titled “Standard Specification for Aramid Fiber for Asphalt Mixtures.” This standard represents a significant advancement in the construction industry, offering a clear framework for enhancing the durability and performance of road surfaces.
Key Features of ASTM D8395-23
The ASTM D8395-23 sets forth rigorous quality and performance criteria for the use of aramid fibers in asphalt mixtures. This ensures that the materials used in asphalt road construction are of the highest quality, contributing to longer-lasting, more resilient roadways.
Optimal Dosing Specification
A crucial aspect of this standard is the precise dosing requirement of 2.1 ounces (approximately 65 grams) of aramid fiber per ton of asphalt. This specific dosing is essential for achieving the desired strength and durability in asphalt mixtures, ensuring that each project meets the stringent standards of quality and performance.
Surface Tech's Precision Dosing and Reporting
To comply with the ASTM D8395-23 standard, we utilize Surface Tech’s advanced dosing technology. This technology allows for exact measurement and incorporation of aramid fibers into asphalt mixtures, adhering to the specified 2.1 oz/ton dosing. This precision is vital for maintaining consistent quality across all projects.
Alongside precision dosing, we implement a thorough daily reporting system with our dosing equipment at your plant. This system captures the dosing rate for each project, ensuring full adherence to the ASTM D8395-23 standard.
Commitment to Excellence
By integrating the ASTM D8395-23 standard into our practices, Surface Tech is at the forefront of innovation in the construction industry. We are committed to delivering projects that not only meet but exceed the highest standards of quality and durability. Our use of Surface Tech’s precision dosing and rigorous daily reporting underlines this commitment, setting a new benchmark for excellence in road construction.
