Bitumen 115/15 refers to a specific grade of oxidized bitumen, which is a sticky, black, and highly viscous substance. Bitumen is a form of petroleum that is commonly used in the construction industry for various applications, particularly in road paving and roofing.
Bitumen 115/15 using in roofing and waterproofing
Waterproofing: Bitumen 115/15 is known for its excellent waterproofing properties, making it a suitable material for roofing. It forms a durable and watertight barrier that protects the underlying structure from water infiltration.
Torch-Down Application: Modified bitumen roofing sheets with a 115/15 using a torch-down method. The sheets are heated with a propane torch to activate the adhesive backing, allowing them to bond securely to the roof substrate.
Built-Up Roofing (BUR): Bitumen using as one of the layers in a built-up roofing system. In BUR, multiple layers of bitumen-saturated felt or fiberglass mats are alternated with layers of bitumen. These layers are then topped with a protective surfacing, such as gravel or mineral granules, to provide UV protection and improve the roof’s durability.
Roof Repair and Maintenance: It can also using for roof repair and maintenance. It is applying as a coating or sealant to fix leaks, seal joints, or reinforce vulnerable areas on the roof. The fluidity and penetration properties of this grade make it suitable for filling cracks and gaps effectively.
The best grade recommended for pipe coating
Bitumen 115/15 using as a coating material for pipes in various applications, primarily in the oil and gas industry. Here’s some information on its usage as pipe coating:
Corrosion Protection: One of the main purposes of using 115/15 as pipe coating is to provide corrosion protection. The coating acts as a barrier between the pipe surface and the surrounding environment, preventing corrosion caused by moisture, chemicals, and other corrosive substances.
External Coating: Bitumen applying as an external coating on pipes. The coating is typically applied in multiple layers to ensure adequate thickness and durability. The bitumen coating provides excellent resistance to water, soil, and atmospheric corrosion, protecting the pipe from degradation and extending its service life.
Application Methods: asphalt 115/15 pipe coating using various methods, including hot-dip coating, hot-applied wrapping, or spray application. The specific method chosen depends on factors such as pipe diameter, project requirements, and site conditions.
Joint Coating: In addition to external coating, Using for coating pipe joints and welds. Coating the joints helps to maintain the overall integrity of the coating system and ensures that vulnerable areas are adequately protected against corrosion.
Thermal Insulation: It is provide thermal insulation properties when used as pipe coating. This is particularly beneficial in pipelines where temperature control is required, such as in hot oil or steam transport systems. The bitumen coating helps to minimize heat loss or gain, improving energy efficiency.
Bitumen 115/15 spraying on concrete cause:
Spray-on coating for concrete surfaces to provide various benefits. Here’s some information on its usage in this application:
One of the primary purposes of applying bitumen 115/15 spray on concrete is to create a waterproof barrier. The coating helps to prevent water penetration into the concrete, protecting it from moisture-related issues such as cracking, spalling, and deterioration.
- Protective Layer
115/15 forms a protective layer on the concrete surface, shielding it from environmental factors like UV radiation, chemical exposure, and abrasion. This helps to prolong the lifespan of the concrete and maintain its structural integrity.
- Crack Sealing
The spray application of crack sealer 115/15 can effectively seal cracks and gaps in concrete surfaces. The fluid nature of the bitumen allows it to penetrate into the cracks and create a tight seal, preventing the ingress of water and further damage.
- Anti-Carbonation Coating
Bitumen coatings can act as anti-carbonation barriers for concrete. Carbonation is a process in which carbon dioxide from the atmosphere reacts with the concrete, leading to a decrease in alkalinity and potential corrosion of embedded reinforcement. Coating 115/15 can help reduce the carbonation rate by limiting the diffusion of carbon dioxide into the concrete.
- Slip Resistance
Bitumen coatings formulating with additives to improve slip resistance on concrete surfaces. This is particularly beneficial for areas where foot or vehicle traffic is present, as it helps to enhance safety by providing better traction.
When applying bitumen 115/15 as a spray-on coating for concrete, it’s important to prepare the surface properly by cleaning it thoroughly and ensuring it is free from contaminants. The coating should be applied according to manufacturer guidelines, taking into consideration factors such as temperature, humidity, and the desired thickness of the coating.
How bitumen 115/15 produce?
Bitumen is a type hydrocarbon and after destination and remove of hydrogen more carbon will remove and become harder. By injecting hot air to bitumen the oxygen of air will combine with hydrogen of bitumen and make H2O and vapour and the remain bitumen is more carbon content and called oxidized bitumen.
