Bitumen Class 360

Bitumen class 360

Understanding the Bitumen Class 360

Bitumen Class 360 plays a pivotal role in construction, particularly in road paving. This viscous, black, semi-solid petroleum derivative boasts remarkable adhesive and waterproofing properties, making it indispensable across various applications.

Application of Bitumen Class 360

It is extensively utilized in road construction as a binding agent for asphalt concrete. Its durability, flexibility, and weather resistance contribute significantly to pavement longevity and structural integrity. Moreover, Bitumen Class 360, including penetration, softening point, ductility, flash point, solubility, loss on heating, finds application in waterproofing projects, such as roofing and waterproof membranes, owing to its excellent waterproofing capabilities.

Difference Between Bitumen Class 360 and Class 300

While both belong to the bitumen category, they exhibit differences in viscosity and application suitability. Bitumen Class 360, with its higher viscosity, is commonly employed in areas subjected to high traffic volume or heavy loads, requiring enhanced durability and strength. Conversely, Class 300 bitumen, with slightly lower viscosity, is suitable for moderate traffic conditions.

Pricing of Asphlat Class- 360

The price of Bitumen may vary based on market demand, supply availability, and transportation costs. For accurate pricing details or to place an order, it is advisable to directly contact suppliers. Dedicated teams ensure the provision of high-quality products and exceptional service to meet project requirements.

Handling Guidelines

Safety is paramount when handling Bitumen  Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), including gloves and eye protectors, must be worn to prevent skin and eye contact. Maintaining safe heating temperatures during product utilization is essential, while inhalation of vapor, spray, or mists should be avoided.

Storage: Drums

Drums containing Bitumen should be stored in cool, well-ventilated areas to preserve product integrity. Proper storage conditions mitigate deterioration risks and ensure optimal performance during application.


It is available in various packaging options to suit diverse project requirements. Commonly supplied in drums, specifications may include 0.6 mm thickness, 180 kg net weight, 95 cm height, and 45 cm diameter, with an operational tolerance of +/- 3 kg.
