Standard Tar Viscometer
Specification: For determining the viscosity of cut back bitumen and road oil. The viscometer consists of a chrome plated copper bath, with a drain valve and a central tube to receive the test cup and to position the stirrer, and is mounted on a stand with levelling feet. Stirrer has a curved shield and is provided with an insulated handle, thermometer socket and swivel support for the valve.

Viscosity is the inverse of fluidity. The degree of fluidity at the application temperature greatly influences the ability of bituminous material to spread, penetrate into voids and also coat the aggregate and hence affect the strength and characteristics of resulting paving mixes. At high fluidity or low viscosity, bitumen binder simply lubricates the aggregate particles instead of providing an uniform film thickness for binding action. Low fluidity or high viscosity does not enable the bitumen to coat the entire surface of aggregate in the mix easily and also resists the compactive effort and resulting mix is heterogeneous in character.
