The softening point of bitumen or tar is the temperature at which the substance attains particular degree of softening. As per IS: 334-1982, ASTM E28-67 or ASTM D36 or ASTM D6493 – 11, it is the temperature in ºC at which a standard ball passes through a sample of bitumen in a mould and falls through a height of 2.5 cm, when heated under water or glycerine at specified conditions of test. The binder should have sufficient fluidity before its applications in road uses.

Uses of Softening Point

The determination of softening point helps to know the temperature up to which a bituminous binder should be heated for various road use applications. Softening point is determined by ring and ball apparatus.
