Long Term Pavement Performance Project Laboratory Materials Testing and Handling Guide

Protocol H16L
Joint Sealants, Hot-Poured, for Cement and Asphalt Pavements (CS01)

This LTPP protocol covers the test for bituminous hot-poured types of joint sealants for PCC and AC pavements. These tests are intended to be used on materials which are hot-poured, joint or crack sealants. The tests will be performed in accordance with ASTM D3407-78, Standard Method of Testing Joint Sealants, Hot-Poured, for Concrete and Asphalt Pavements. Alternate Procedure 7.4.1, may not be used, and Preparation of Specimens under 9.1.1 must be completed in accordance with AASHTO T245-89I. Penetration tests required in paragraph 5 shall be completed in accordance with LTPP Protocol H03L.

The results will be recorded on LTPP Test Sheet H15.
