Abstract

This paper presents the results of a Round-Robin test to estimate the precision of European method EN-12697-41 “Test methods for hot mix asphalt-Resistance to de-icing fluids”. The purpose of the project was to determine precision data according to ISO 5725, ASTM E691 and ASTM C802. The examined test method is intended for use in requirements specifications for airfield de-icing chemicals and/or as a tool for development of such products. Precision statistics, repeatability and reproducibility standard deviations, are based on observed values from six laboratories and six levels, each level comprising four samples. From a general statistical analysis, which was conducted in addition to precision determination, it could be concluded that the most damaging de-icing agents (treatments) were identified by all participating laboratories both in terms of absolute values and by ranks.
