Note 1: Examine the CRS-2P storage stability test sample after it has been allowed to stand undisturbed for 24 hours. The surface of the test sample must show no white, milky colored substance, but is to be homogeneous brown clear throughout.

Note 2: The cure test is performed as follows: Pour approximately 1 gram of CRS-2P emulsion onto a metal surface (lid of a 3 ounce ointment tin). Allow the test sample to cure at temperatures of at least 80F under a heat light for 4 hours. The outdoors sunlight may be used as a testing site. After the 4 hour curing period, the CRS-2P emulsion must show no tackiness or tendency to stick to the fingers when pressed.

Note 3: The distillation test for CRS-2P emulsion is to comply with AASHTO T 59 section 5 and ensure the distillation temperature is what the emulsion manufacturer recommends.
