Rubber Manufacturing Blog / Business / State DOT testing crap shoot
Posted:  21 Jul 2014 16:54
We have produced material to AASHTO specifications with great success for decades.  In the past 2 years we have run into one particular DOT branch conducting 100% in-house testing and accepting only the internal results even when A2LA results differ. I am assuming others have faced similar hurdles (maybe with the same state)and I wonder if anyone has successfully negotiated a workable path to resolution.
