Oxidized Bitumen 115/15 Description
Oxidized bitumen 115/15 is based on petroleum bitumen which is made by blowing bitumen 60/70 by hot air. The most oxidized bitumen usable grade is bitumen 115/15 and 70% of our capacity is dedicated to this grade. bitumen 115/15 is a semi-solid oxidized grade of pure petroleum bitumen categorized in polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and oxidized bitumen normally used for different purposes in the construction business. Bitumen 115/115 has a high softening point, high flash point and it is highly stable during melting.
Oxidized Bitumen 115/15 Applications
Blown Asphalt 115/15 is widely used as an anti-slip layer compound in the piling industry, for the manufacture of roofing felts, for sound dampening felts and under carriage sealant in the automobile industry, electric cable joint protection, joint filling compound, sealant compound and many others.

It’s using as raw material for bitumen coat, roofing, insulation also in Isolation bitumen membrane sheet. Also, Bitumen 115/15 uses in chemical, fuel, paints, lacquers, varnishes, paper-pulp-board, textile processing. In road construction, pavement, crack seal and repairmen, civil works, roofing also construction. Besides, it uses for sealing and insulating buildings, adhesive, construction materials additive, dust-binding, coating. With the wide range uses in the insulating and impregnating agent, make rubber and plastic products.
Bitumen 115/15 products are for paving, roofing. Also used in asphalt-based paints for corrosion protection of metals, inlining public works structures, adhesives in electrical laminates, a base for synthetic turf. Typical uses for Bitumen 115/15 also include roofing, pipe coating, Portland cement pavement, hydraulic applications, paint manufacturing.

Technical Advantages of Blown Asphalt 115/15
- Chemical Stability
Compared to paving grade bitumen:
- Reduced temperature susceptibility
- Exhibits a more ‘solid’ nature at ambient temperatures
- High penetration index
Blown Asphalt 115/15 Storage/handling
Oxidized bitumen 115/15 has 10 years of validity with multi-time heating and cooling, please refer to MSDS. It is better to keep the bitumen 115/15 under shelter and out of the rain, sun. By mopping or by the pour and roll method. Should be heated to a temperature between 180 to 200.
Blown Asphalt 115/15 Packing
The bitumen 115/15 is available in bulk, drum, meltable, and craft bag. This bitumen 115/15 is generally shipped as a solid and heated in a kettle at the worksite.
