Bitumen 100/150: Applications Quality Assurance Packaging and Pricing

Bitumen 100/150

Introduction

Bitumen 100/150 is a vital component in road construction and asphalt pavement production, offering superior properties that ensure durability and performance. This article delves into the definition, applications, and quality assurance of this essential material.

Understanding Bitumen Penetration Grade 100/150

Bitumen  100/150 is a standardized form of bitumen specifically designed for road construction. It possesses unique thermoplastic properties, allowing it to soften at high temperatures and harden at lower temperatures. This characteristic is crucial in determining the material’s adhesion, rheology, durability, and application temperatures.

Applications in Road Construction

This grade of bitumen finds extensive use in road construction projects, particularly in the production of hot mix asphalt for bases and wearing courses. Its superior properties contribute to the stability and cohesion of bituminous mixes, essential for long-lasting and high-performance road surfaces.
