Bitumen Penetration Grade 10/20 Description
Bitumen penetration grade 10/20 ensures long-term savings because it allows for a thinner pavement design, which uses up to 30% less asphalt than traditional designs while ensuring extended pavement life. HJ exporting bitumen 10/20 its penetration hard grade and softening between 10 to 20. bitumen 10/20 is hard penetration grade bitumen using as paving grade bitumen suitable for road construction and repair also for the production of asphalt pavements with the below technical specification. This grade of bitumen is mainly used in the manufacture of hot mix asphalt for bases and wearing courses. It is a kind of hard penetration grade bitumen that is provided during the process of oxidation of vacuum bottom the bitumen production that derives from distillation tower residue in vacuum oil refineries at the bitumen production unit.
Penetration Grade Bitumen is a standard bitumen usually used as a Paving Grade Bitumen essential for road construction and for the production of asphalt pavements with superior properties, and it’s very important once it bounds the aggregates and creates a unique cohesion and stability to the bituminous mix.
Bitumen 10/20 Applications
Bitumen 10/20 is suitable for road construction and repair for the asphalt pavements with superior properties. This type of bitumen used in the manufacture of hot mix asphalt for bases and wearing courses and the bitumen 10/20 is also for the production of pavements.
Guaranty and Safety of Bitumen 10/20
HJ Oil guarantees the quality of bitumen 10/20 with the arrangement of the international inspectors to check quality and quantity during the loading to the vessel and controlling the production by QC by batch test report before shipping. HJ Oil Company guarantees the quality to meet with ASTM.
