Fraass Breaking Point Apparatus

The TAS-0137 Fraass Breaking Point Apparatus is used to determine the breaking point of solid and semi solid bitumen. The Fraass Breaking Point is the temperature at which bitumen first becomes brittle, as indicated by the appearance of cracks when a thin-film of the bitumen on a metal plaque is cooled and flexed in accordance with specified conditions. The apparatus consists of a stainless steel plaque, cooling and bending apparatus, a thermometer IP 42C (-38°C/+30°C), a plate and a stand.
