bitumen 20/30


Definition of Bitumen 20/30

Bitumen 20/30 is a paving-grade bitumen known for its superior properties in road construction and asphalt pavement production. Manufactured through fractional/vacuum distillation of crude oil , this grade of bitumen plays a crucial role in creating durable and high-performing road surfaces.

Properties of Bitumen 20/30

Penetration Grade exhibits thermoplastic properties, softening at high temperatures and hardening at lower temperatures. This unique characteristic ensures optimal performance in various weather conditions, contributing to enhanced adhesion, rheology, durability, and application temperatures of bitumen-based materials.

Applications of Bitumen Penetration Grade 20/30

Penetration Grade 20-30 is ideal for road construction and repair, particularly in the production of hot mix asphalt for bases and wearing courses. Its superior properties enhance the cohesion and stability of bituminous mixes, resulting in long-lasting and robust asphalt pavements.

Guarantee and Quality Assurance

We guarantees the quality of  Penetration Grade 20-30 through stringent quality control measures. International inspectors oversee the loading process to ensure quality and quantity standards are met, with production controlled by batch test reports before shipping. The quality of Asphalt Penetration Grade 20-30 complies with ASTM and European Standard DIN EN 12591:99, ensuring reliability and performance in road construction applications.

In conclusion, Penetration Grade 20-30 is a standard bitumen with exceptional properties that make it indispensable in road construction and asphalt pavement production. Its thermoplastic nature, coupled with stringent quality assurance measures, guarantees durability, performance, and adherence to international standards
