Penetration bitumen

We offer eleven grades in our Bitumen range; these grades are used in different applications according to the industry specifications. Our Bitumen is delivered in drums and tankers through our logistics network directly to your plant, project or any other destinations.

Description

Our Bitumen is graded on stiffness (penetration in tenths of a mm of a 100g needle dropped onto a bitumen sample for 5 seconds at 25°C and softening point). Lower penetration value bitumen is therefore stiffer. Lower penetration bitumen also has higher softening temperatures compared to higher penetration grades. Commonly used bitumen grades are 40/60 pen, 70/100 pen, 100/150 pen, and 160/220 pen. We offer eleven grades in our Bitumen range; these grades are used in different applications according to the industry specifications. We are also capable of manufacturing any specific penetration grades according to your specifications. Our Bitumen is delivered in drums and tankers through our logistics network directly to your plant, project or any other destinations.

Bitumen advantages for construction are:

– Noise reduction
– Surface water dispersal
– Skid resistance
– Easy maintenance reduces traffic disruption
– Clearer lane marking with colored asphalts
– Totally recyclable
– Versatile and flexible
– Importance of bitumen quality in Airfields

Without hard paving, access may be difficult to the airfield, flying may be restricted in inclement weather or the facilities may not come up to the minimum standards required by the regulatory authorities for passenger carrying aircraft.

The following areas on a typical airfield are likely to require hard paving:

– Runways
– Taxi-ways providing access to runways
– Aircraft parking
– Re-fuelling or servicing aprons
– Hanger floors
– Car, bus or commercial vehicle parking areas
– Access roads
– Edge drainage (French Drains) for runways and taxiways
