Bitumen 80/100

Understanding Bitumen 80/100

Bitumen 80/100 is a specialized type derived from the oxidation process of vacuum bottom Bitumen production feedstock. It emerges from the residue of distillation towers in vacuum oil refineries, offering specific penetration points between 80/100.

The Versatility of Bitumen Penetration Grade 80/100

This standard penetration grade Bitumen finds its prime use in road construction and the production of asphalt pavements, showcasing superior properties essential for durability and performance.

Production Process

Carbokim  Company employs a cutting-edge process for producing e Asphalt 80/100, utilizing Vacuum Residue blown by hot air in the Biturox Blowing Unit. This automated process ensures a constant and homogeneous quality in the finished product.

Properties of Bitumen 80/100,

Compared to its counterparts like bitumen 60/70, exhibits a softer nature. It is carefully selected from crude oil distillates, boasting a penetration range of 80~100 desi-millimeter and a softening point between 42 ~ 50°C. The thermoplastic property of this grade allows it to soften under heat and harden upon cooling, making it akin to synthetic resin materials.

Diverse Uses

Primarily suited for road construction and superior asphalt pavements, Bitumen 80/100 finds its place in the manufacturing of hot mix asphalt, crucial for bases and wearing courses.

Quality Assurance by Carbokim Company

Carbokim Company places paramount importance on quality assurance. International inspectors oversee the loading of Asphalt 80/100 to vessels, ensuring adherence to standards like ASTM. Quality control through batch testing further fortifies the guarantee of quality and conformity to international standards such as AASHTO M20-70 & ASTM D946.

Packaging Options

Bitumen 80/100 is conveniently packed in various options such as new steel drums (150, 180 & 220 Kg), 1MT and 500Kg Jumbo Bags, or 300kg Bitubag. Moreover, Ex-work bulk loading by truck is available for other grades, ensuring flexibility and efficiency in handling.
