DOT Submittal Requirements

A Manufacturer’s Perspective

Andrew S. Fulkerson

DOT Market Specialist

The Euclid Chemical Company


What do the following product types have in common?

Rapid Setting Cement Based Repair Materials

Epoxy Adhesives

Non-Shrink Cement Based Grouts


They all have an ASTM Standard Specification that gives Pass/Fail Criteria.

ASTM C 881 - Epoxy Adhesives

ASTM C 928 - Rapid Setting Cement Based Repair Material

ASTM C 1107 - Non-Shrink Cement Based Grouts


Does this matter? Pass/Fail Criteria.

NO!!


Most DOT’s require independent laboratory testing for their specification.

These testing requirements may include the following:

  • ASTM

  • Modified ASTM

  • State Test Methods

  • National Transportation Product Evaluation Program (NTPEP)


Rapid hardening repair for florida
Rapid Hardening Repair for Florida their specification.

Section 930 – Materials for Concrete Repair

  • Rapid Hardening Mortar

  • Very Rapid Hardening Mortar

  • MAPC (High Stress Areas)


Rapid hardening repair for texas
Rapid Hardening Repair for Texas their specification.

DMS 4655 – Concrete Repair Materials

  • Type A-1-Horizontal Repairs < 4 in.

  • Type A-2 – Horizontal Repairs > 4 in.

  • Type A-3 – Vertical or Overhead Repairs < 1 in.

  • Type A-4 – Vertical or Overhead Repair between 1 in. and 6 in.

  • Type B – Ultra-Rapid Repairs


Lets look at the following
Lets look at the following their specification.

Section 930 – Materials for Concrete Repair

  • Rapid Hardening Mortar

  • Very Rapid Hardening Mortar

    DMS 4655 – Concrete Repair Materials

  • Type A-1-Horizontal Repairs < 4 in.


How do they compare
How do they compare? their specification.


How do they compare1
How do they compare? their specification.

The differences are as follows:

  • Testing Age and method of Compressive Strength

    • Florida Requires ASTM C 109 @ 3 hrs, 24 hrs, 7D, and 28D

    • Texas requires ASTM C 39 @ 6 hr, 24 hrs, and 28D

  • Method for Coefficient of Thermal Expansion

    • Florida requires ASTM C 531

    • Texas requires their own test method which requires higher temperatures


How do they compare2

The differences are as follows: their specification.

Slant Shear Bond Strength ASTM C 882

Florida requires 24 hrs and 7 D

Texas requires 3 D with much higher value and gives a specified concrete mix design for the test cylinders

Shrinkage

Florida Requires ASTM C 157 using 1 in. beams with a specified curing period that differs from ASTM C 928.

Texas requires ASTM C 157 using 3 in. beams with another specified curing period that differs from Florida and ASTM C 928

How do they compare?


Other requirements outside of testing
Other Requirements Outside of Testing their specification.

  • Packaging

  • Lot numbering

  • Born on Date vs. Use By Date

  • Shelf Life

  • Recertification

  • Re-testing frequencies

  • Certification Letter on each Lot


Ntpep
NTPEP their specification.

Now lets throw more requirements into the mix!!!!

NTPEP is a testing program through AASHTO that utilizes the laboratories of certain DOT’s to test a wide array of products.

Curing Compounds, chemical admixtures, polymer modified overlayments, and rapid setting repair materials, to name a few.


Ntpep1

Alabama their specification.

Colorado

Georgia

Kentucky

Louisiana

Maine

Missouri

New Jersey

Tennessee

Wisconsin

NTPEP

All ten of the following States require this testing along with an independent laboratory report to show compliance to their actual specification for Rapid Hardening Concrete Repair.


What does this mean for manufacturer s
What does this mean for Manufacturer’s their specification.

  • Additional cost for product approval

  • Delayed results, NTPEP testing is done once a year and has a two year testing cycle.

    • Colorado requires this testing to be re-started every 3 yrs after approval.

    • NTPEP requires it every 5 yrs after initial testing is conducted.


One example was given regarding the amount of testing required to get a product approved in multiple State’s.

Manufacturer’s must choose the right product to meet the specifications but also to give a return on investment.
