Bitumen Types




Different kinds of Bitumen

bitumen types

Penetration Bitumen

Penetration Grade Bitumen is produced from the vacuum distillation of crude oil and is classified according to it's penetration range . 

uses :

  • producing hot mix asphalt for base and wearing courses .

  • road construction

  • asphalt

bitumen penetration grades :

  • BITUMEN 40/50

  • BITUMEN 60/70

  • BITUMEN 80/100

  • BITUMEN 120/150

Packing : 150/180/210 New Steel Drums With 0.6,0.7.1 MM Thickness . 

Cutback Bitumen


Cutback Bitumen or as it is called Liquid Bitumen,  is a kind of Bitumen that is dissolved in a solvent .

Typical solvents including Naphtha, gasoline and kerosene, white spirit etc.

The type of solvent controls the curing time while the amount determines the viscosity of the Cutback Bitumen.

packing : 220 , 230 , 240 Liter Drum

  • Slow Curing cutback Bitumen SC-250

  • Slow Curing cutback Bitumen SC-800

  • Slow Curing cutback Bitumen SC-3000

Oxidized Bitumen

Oxidized Bitumen are created by passing air through the penetration grades. oxidized bitumen production gives it more plastic

feature advantage than it's original formula . and they are commonly harder bitumen.

Uses :

  • pilling industries

  • roofing and water proofing industries as anti-slip compound layer . 

  • Automotive industries as sound dampening 

  • electric cable joint protection

  • producing of bituminous marine mastic for the oil & gas pipeline joints 

Oxidized bitumen most used grades

  • Oxidized Bitumen 115/15

  • Oxidized Bitumen 95/125

  • Oxidized Bitumen 90/15

Grade Bitumen

Viscosity Grade Bitumen or as it is called Asphalt is a kind of  Bitumen grade which is commonly used as Pavingfor road construction

and asphalt pavements manufacturing with premier attributes. VG Bitumen is usually used in the production of hot mix asphalt.

Viscosity Grade Bitumen is a petroleum grade bitumen, which is  manufactured from fractional vacuum bottom which comes

from distillation of crude oil  .which it's usage  and behavior related to it's  temperature.

  • VG 10

  • VG 20

  • VG 30

  • VG 40

Polymer Modified Bitumen

Polymer modified bitumen  is one of the most useful  bitumen grades that is used in making pavement, roads for heavy duty traffic

and home roofing solutions because of it's waterproof feature to  withstand extreme weather conditions.

  • tyrene butadiene styrene (SBS)

  • styrene butadiene rubber (SBR)

  • ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA)
