The Future of Moisture Sensitivity Testing

M.i.S.T. (Moisture Included Stress Tester) is designed as a totally new, quick and logical method for testing mositure damage susceptibility of asphalt mixtures. The M.i.S.T. is the latest innovation from InstroTek and unlike current test methods, is designed to simulate the stripping mechanisms that occur in HMA pavement layers. 


  • Designed to simulate HMA pavement stripping mechanishms.
  • Shorter test times than current moisture sensitivity tests. Results in less than one day.
  • Tests can be performed at realistic pressures similar to pressures produced by vehicle tires.
  • Testing is automatic and monitored by sensors.
  • Data can be stored and transferred to a PC for evaluation and archiving.
