The temperature at which the binder softens beyond a predetermined limit is the softening point (a deformation of 25mm under the weight of a steel ball). The Ring and Ball apparatus, which comes in both manual and automatic forms, is the tool used to measure this attribute.
To ascertain the softening point of asphalts, pitches, tars, and most resins, a ring and ball equipment known as the softening point apparatus is utilised.
The softening point is the temperature at which, under particular circumstances, a solid substance begins to change into a liquid state. Knowing the bituminous binder’s softening point allows for the proper heating of the material for various road use applications. Ring and calculate the softening point.
The Global Softening Point Apparatus Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The dropping point and softening point of substances including greases, pitch, polymers, and more can be determined analytically using a dropping point methodology. The temperature at which the first drop of a molten substance precipitates is known as the dropping point.
The temperature at which a molten substance flows a specific distance is known as the softening point. The dropping point and softening point are both fully automated with the METTLER TOLEDO dropping point system.By using a ring and ball setup, softening point can be calculated.
APPARATUS: Two steel balls, each measuring 9.5 mm in diameter and weighing 0.05g.Knowing the bituminous binder’s softening point allows for the proper heating of the material for various road use applications. Using a ring and ball setup, the softening point is calculated.
The temperature at which a substance softens past a predetermined softness is known as the softening point. For instance, the Vicat method (ASTM-D1525 or ISO 306), the Heat Deflection Test (ASTM-D648), or the ring and ball method (ISO 4625, ASTM E28-67/E28-99, ASTM D36, ASTM D6493 – 11, or JIS K 6863) can all be used to calculate it.
