Bitumen 90/10

bitumen 90/10

Bitumen 90/10 is the soft grade of oxidized bitumen with softening port 90C + 5 and penetration 10 +5 desimillimiter. It is semi-solid with some flexibility compared to hard grades and is mostly used in Indian market for waterproofing and battery. are produced by passing air through a bitumen feedstock under controlled conditions. This produces a higher softening point bitumen with reduced susceptibility to change with temperature and greater resistance to imposed stresses.

What differences of Bitumen with Asphalt 90/10?

Physical property

It is a black or dark brown solid or semi-solid thermo-plastic material possessing waterproofing and adhesive properties. Bitumen 90/10 is obtained from processing crude petroleum oil and is a complex combination of higher molecular weight organic compounds containing a relatively high proportion of hydrocarbons having carbon numbers greater than C25 with a high carbon-to-hydrogen ratio. It also contains trace amounts of metals such as nickel, iron or vanadium. It is essentially non-volatile at ambient temperatures and is soluble in carbon disulfide.

It is not known to present any safety, health, or environmental hazard. Meanwhile, the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) defines bitumen as a generic class of amorphous natural or manufactured, dark-colored, cementitious substances composed principally of high molecular mass hydrocarbons, soluble in carbon disulfide. Asphalt also is defined as a cementitious material in which the predominating constituents are bitumens. The terms bituminous and asphaltic then refer to materials that contain or are treated with bitumen or asphalt.

How bitumen 90/10 produce?

Bitumen is a type of hydrocarbon and after the destination and removal of hydrogen more carbon will remove and become harder. By injecting hot air to bitumen the oxygen of air will combine with the hydrogen of bitumen and make H2O and vapor and the remain bitumen is more carbon content and called oxidized bitumen.

Packing and method of peeling

We are able to supply bitumen 90/10 in 25Kg meltable bags,50Kg meltable bag,25Kg craft bags,50Kg craft bags,25Kg carton boxes. In 20ft container, we can supply 22.8MT bulk or pallet. In case you are looking for drum packing it is possible in 185Kg Net and 220Kg drum.

Usage and application

It using for isolation and insulation and concrete surface coating, pipe coating, asphalt shingle, bottom sealing of carpet, paint and primer, mastic and membrane roof sheet, laminate and adhesive, roofing and flooring  and enamel.Applications include use in roofing materials, waterproof papers, electrical components and many other building and industrial products. Classification is normally by both penetration value and softening point

Industrial usage

Industrial applications are varied and cannot therefore be covered by general statements. The health hazards will depend upon the procedures involved, e.g.

  • Lining and waterproofing operations may be considered as roofing or paving,
    depending upon the technique.
  • Flooring requires handling of hot mastic asphalts that are often laid by hand in
    enclosed areas. The hazards are of the same type as those encountered in
    using hot bitumen mixes, but the potential exposure to fumes is higher because
    of the use of much higher temperatures (around 250°C), sometimes with
    reduced ventilation. The bitumens are usually hard grades.
  • Protective coating may give rise to concern when applied diluted in a solvent
    which often contains aromatic hydrocarbons.
  • Paper or cardboard impregnation is carried out a moderate temperature and the
    end product is usually applied at ambient temperature.

How to order?

Optimum quotation is require to clear packing, quality and destination to be able to quote accordingly.We have sales agent in many many countries and if you looking for local purchase we are able to deliver DDP to the project.

Safety of usage and work

When it is in room temperature it is 100% safe and just should be in proper storage warehouse to be away from acid and fire but whenever it is on high temperature need to care about since the temperature is more than 230 centigrade.
