Kentucky specifies less than 10% of 51 particles for all traffic levels. Connecticut, Hawaii, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming specify a maximum of 20% 3.2.4 Flat and Elongated Particles particles exceeding the 31 ratio. In Utah, these criteria only apply to the +9.5-mm material. Texas specifies a maximum Superpave specifies that the percentage of flat and elon- of 10% of 31 particles.
