Penetration Bitumen 80/100
One of the penetration bitumen grades is Penetration Bitumen 80/100; this grade has a lower ductility than previous grades like Penetration Bitumen 10/20 and 35/50 and has more ductility than grades higher than itself, like Penetration Bitumen 160/220 and 200/300.
This grade of bitumen is manufactured through the vacuum bottom oxidation process. This product leaves the distillation tower when its penetration is between 80 to 100 desi-millimeters.
Technical Properties : Penetration Bitumen 80/100
Penetration Bitumen 80/100 has a penetration degree between 80 to 100 desi-millimeters and softening point between 48 to 56 ℃. Also, its thermoplastic property means that high temperature leads to softer bitumen and low temperature leads to harder bitumen.
Applications :: Penetration Bitumen 80/100
The primary use of Penetration Bitumen 80/100 is road construction in colder areas. Moreover, it can be used as an input to produce emulsion bitumen, cutback and modified bitumen grades.
Packing : Penetration Bitumen 80/100
New steel drum, bulk. It should be mentioned that this grade can be shipped in a jumbo bag, if the weather is cold. (Low temperatures cause harder bitumen.)
