Bitumen AH50

Bitumen AH50

Definition of Bitumen AH50

Bitumen AH50, a premium asphalt derived from crude petroleum refining, is renowned for its exceptional properties and versatile applications in construction projects. This dark-colored bitumen boasts impressive waterproofing and adhesive characteristics, making it a preferred choice for various infrastructure developments.

Asphalt AH-50 signifies the penetration grade of this bitumen, specifically related to the penetration test that gauges its hardness or softness. The number 50 indicates the penetration value in units of 0.1 millimeters (0.1 mm), showcasing how much a standard needle penetrates the bitumen sample under defined conditions and loads over a specified time.

Properties of Bitumen AH50:

  • High-quality asphalt from crude petroleum refining.

  • Dark color with superior waterproofing and adhesive properties.
  • Substantially non-volatile and softens gradually when heated.

Uses of Bitumen AH50: 

It serves as a crucial binder for mineral aggregates in asphalt concrete and hot-laid plant mix. Its applications span across highways, airports, parking areas, driveways, and curbs, particularly in regions with moderate to warm climates. Project planners should reference local specifications to ensure the selected bitumen grade aligns with specific project requirements.

Handling Bitumen AH50:

Safe handling of Bitumen AH50 mandates the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) such as gloves and eye protectors. Maintaining safe heating temperatures is vital to prevent skin, eye, and clothing contact, as well as inhalation of vapor, spray, or mists during application. Key handling points include:

  • Use PPEs like gloves and eye protectors.
  • Maintain safe heating temperatures.
  • Avoid skin, eye, and clothing contact.
  • Prevent inhalation of vapor, spray, or mists during application.

Packaging Details:

Bitumen AH50 is available in drums with a thickness of 0.6 mm, weighing 180 kg net. The drums measure approximately 95 cm in height and 45 cm in diameter, with an operational tolerance of +/- 3 kg.
