Bitumen is an oil based substance. It is semi-solid hydrocarbon product produced by removing the lighter fractions from heavy crude oil during the refining process.
As such, it is correctly known as refined bitumen. It is generally used as a raw material for road construction processes and other applications. There are two types of bitumen we trade in- 60/70 and 80/100.
60/70 Bitumen: Bitumen Penetration Grade 60/70 is a standard penetration grade Bitumen usually used as a Paving Grade Bitumen suitable for road construction, surfacing and various industrial applications. We supply 60/70 Bitumen for the production of superior grade asphalt pavements, asphalt mixes, bitumen emulsion, cutback bitumen and modified bitumen.
80/100 Bitumen: This grade is suitable for road construction and for the production of asphalt pavements with superior properties. It is mainly used in the manufacture of hot mix asphalt for bases and wearing courses.
