BITUMEN 80-100 is a petroleum product and Arena Petro Gas is in position to supply and export it directly from SANAT GROUP- PASARGAD OIL COMPANY through its trading services according to the following specification and technical properties.
In addition, Bitumen 80/100 is a type of asphalt that is derived from crude petroleum refining. It has a dark color and has waterproofing and adhesive properties. It is also substantially non-volatile, which means it does not evaporate easily, and it softens gradually when heated. The number 80/100 indicates the penetration grade of the bitumen, which is a measure of its hardness or consistency. The penetration grade is determined by the depth (in tenths of a millimeter) that a standard needle can penetrate into a sample of bitumen at 25°C under a load of 100 grams for 5 seconds. The higher the penetration, the softer the bitumen. Bitumen 80/100 has a penetration range of 80 to 100, which means it is relatively soft compared to other grades of bitumen.
Bitumen 80/100 has various uses in different industries, especially in road construction and surfacing. It commonly uses for the production of hot mix asphalt (HMA) for the base and wearing courses of pavements. HMA is a mixture of bitumen and aggregates (such as sand, gravel, or crushed stone) that is heated, mixed, and compacted to form a durable and smooth surface. Bitumen 80/100 is suitable for HMA because it has a high viscosity, which enables a thinner pavement design and an overall 30 percent reduction in the amount of asphalt being applied. Bitumen 80/100 can also use to manufacture cut-back bitumen, bitumen emulsions, and modified bitumen, which are other forms of asphalt products that have different properties and applications.
The technical specifications of bitumen 80/100 vary depending on the source and the manufacturer of the product. However, some common specifications are based on international standards and test methods, such as ASTM, AASHTO, EN, and BS.
