ASTM D4311 does not support temperature corrections for emulsified asphalt. Thus, QuantityWare has reviewed the MS-19 Basic Asphalt Emulsion Manual, which provides a temperature-volume correction table B.1 for emulsified asphalt. This manual is classified as a regional/product specific standard. With note 000096, an advanced development is now delivered to all QuantityWare BCS customers, to support emulsified asphalt quantity conversions based on the MS-19 volume correction factor table.

To accurately reflect the nature of the agreements between QuantityWare and our customers, Licenses are now named “Usage Keys” throughout our web presences and documents. Some web or portal screens have been renamed as a result, including the Usage Questionnaire – UQ (formerly License Questionnaire – LQ) and Test Usage Key Request – TUKR (formerly Test License Request Form – TLRF).
To further transparency and understanding of our service offerings to customers, we have created a single document which defines our support:
• availability times
• response times
• ticket priority re-organisation
• necessary pre-requisites per ticket priority
See our Support Service Priority Definition document for further details.
