The fast and simple way to perform your SCB tests
Meets TP124 (I-FIT), ASTM D8044 (LSU method) and IDEAL-CT (TTI Method) ASTM D8225
InstroTek’s Auto_SCB is a precise and versatile device for conducting mechanical testing of asphalt mixtures at a fraction of the cost. Able to run various versions of Semi-Circular Bend (SCB) test, Auto_SCB helps pavement designers and maintenance practitioners predict the cracking potential, performance, and ductility of asphalt mixtures.
The extremely universal and automatic Auto_SCB is capable of running several other performance tests with user-friendly programmable features. The touch screen display and intuitive controls allow for rapidly setting new test parameters and monitoring test data in real time. Auto_SCB can accommodate a wide range of test accessories to run asphalt performance tests such as IDT strength and IDT creep compliance and is able to operate in load-control and displacement-control modes.
Now Engineers and Researchers alike have a new and cost-effective tool for improving the performance of asphalt mixtures.
