Consistency describes the degree of fluidity or plasticity of asphalt binder at any particular temperature. The consistency of asphalt binder varies with temperature; therefore, it is necessary to use a common or standard temperature when comparing the consistency of one asphalt binder with another. The standard test temperature is 140°F (60°C).
