This European Standard describes a simple method for the examination of coarse recycled aggregates for the purpose of identifying and estimating the relative proportions of constituent materials. This reference test method should be used for type testing and in case of dispute. For other purposes, in particular factory production control, other methods may be used provided that an appropriate working relationship with the reference method has been established. NOTE 1 – This method is not appropriate for lightweight aggregates covered by EN 13055 series. NOTE 2 – If dangerous substances are found in while carrying out this method, they should be dealt with in accordance with regulations in the place of use.
