Sample Preparation and Conditioning
ASTM D3182, ASTM D3183, and ASTM D1349
These standards act as quality control measures by mitigating variation throughout the process leading up to the particular test methodologies.
ASTM D3182 sets standards for the weighing of materials, the mix process, and preparation of standard vulcanized slabs. ASTM D3183 goes on to identify the practice for preparing samples for testing and the initial conditioning requirements prior to proceeding with testing. ASTM D1349 proceeds to outline the standard laboratory conditions associated with performing standardized testing.
