Particle size of the asphalt droplets is critical to stability and application performance. Glass beads can enhance the nighttime visibility of various objects on the road. The CAMSIZER P4 analyzer has been used in many laboratories to characterize the size and shape of these road materials.
Measuring and controlling the particle size distribution of cement is important both in order to achieve the desired product performance and to control manufacturing costs. Laser diffraction is the more popular method to determine the particle size distribution as the technique is quick, easy, reproducible, and provides a complete picture of the full size distribution.
