Asphalt Testing with SAFECHEM

We offer products and services for checking the quality of asphalt that is used in road construction.

Safe roads need high-quality asphalt

Before streets can be formed, the quality of the materials used to build them needs to be checked. In the case of asphalt streets, one of the material checks includes determining the bitumen content – a main binder compound in asphalt – and subsequently analysing the physical properties of this bitumen.

To do this, the bitumen is extracted from the asphalt matrix by using our solvent. After extraction, the physical parameters of dry bitumen are tested.

How we can help with Asphalt testing

SAFECHEM offers high-quality solvents for achieving reliable and reproducible analysis results in a safer way with the SAFE-TAINER™ System and takes back the used solvent in the SAFE-TAINER™ System for recycling. SAFECHEM also offers services to enable monitoring of solvent quality on-site, by using the SAFECHEM MAXICHECK™ Test Kit or our Asphalt Additive Compatibility Test. For extracting the bitumen from the asphalt, trichlorethylene is indispensable on the basis of DIN EN 12697. For the REACH Authorization Use of Trichloroethylene as Extraction Solvent for Bitumen in Asphalt, on 21 September 2015, ECHA’s two expert committees released their final opinion proposing a review period of 7 years.
