In 2018, the IMAA set up a working group to research a new test method penetration depth in order to develop a faster and more significant test method for assessing the quality of mastic asphalt.
The working group is composed as follows:
- Aeschlimann Heinz, Aeschlimann Asphalt Engineering AG, Switzerland (chairman)
- Depierraz Jürg, IMAA, Switzerland
- Kinnmark Mikael, DAB Group AB, Sweden
- Rode Peter, bga, Germany
On the occasion of the IMAA Congress 2019 in Cologne (DE) first interim results were presented. The corresponding slide presentation can be downloaded here. Actually, the second phase of the research project is running. The results should be published by the end of 2020.
