Bitumen VG 20

Building Stronger Roads with Bitumen Viscosity Grade VG 20

Bitumen Viscosity Grade VG 20 plays a vital role in constructing sturdy roads, especially in cold climates and mountainous areas. Let’s delve into the importance of VG 20 and its applications.

Enhancing Road Durability

Resilient in Various Conditions

VG 20 can endure temperature changes from 30 to 37°C, ensuring roads stay strong and stable even in extreme weather.

Perfect for Hot Mix Asphalt

In places like Northern India, VG 20 is extensively used for making hot mix asphalt, providing excellent stability and performance even in high heat.

Understanding VG 20 Characteristics

Key Features

VG 20 bitumen has just the right flow and adhesive strength because of its viscosity, boosting the strength of road surfaces.

Properties of VG 20

Absolute Viscosity: Ranges from 1600 to 2400 poise at 60°C, ensuring smooth application.

Penetration: With a standard penetration value of 60 mm at 25°C, VG 20 is just the right hardness for road building.

Softening Point: Typically between 30 to 37°C, showing its ability to handle high temperatures without weakening.

Ductility: It can stretch without breaking, making roads more durable.

Waterproofing

VG 20 bitumen is handy for tasks beyond roads, like waterproofing roofs and various industrial uses.

 Advantages of VG 20

Durability: VG 20 makes roads last longer, cutting down on maintenance.

Versatility: It’s used in various industries, making it widely popular.

Eco-Friendly: Thanks to its durability, VG 20 reduces the need for repairs, which is good for the environment.
