Bitumen 60/70 Applications

Bitumen 60/70

Bitumen 60/70 is processing from oil refinery and is a type of penetrating bitumen. Bitumen 60/70 raw material is taking from on the bottom of refinery tower and called vacuum bottom. In depends on temperature Bitumen 60/70 has different permeability from 60 to 70. Hardness and temperature relation in bitumen 60/70 depends on Crude oil and refinery specifications, which is between 6-7 mm. another type of bitumen is oxidized bitumen. Oxidized bitumen is produced through high heat and from point bitumen. oxidized bitumen is used in various industries such as construction for insulation and other purposes.

Bitumen 60/70, General Applications

Bitumen 60/70, mostly used in making asphalt in road construction. Bitumen 60/70 mixing with other material in asphalt to give it a carpet ability character. Bitumen 60/70 price is not high and has good performance for filling cracks and improving asphalt quality. Bitumen 60/70 also using in polymer bitumen as improver of elasticity and softening.

Bitumen 60/70 Packing Types

Bitumen 60/70 is offering normally in steel drums. In depend on using drum weight is different from 160 to 190 kg. Bitumen 60/70 also packing in jumbo bag which is called bitubag, by 350, 700, 1000 kg net weight of product. Meanwhile, Bitumen 60/70 supplying in bulk as well.

Bitumen 60/70 Customers and Export destinations

Bitumen 60/70, based on using in making asphalt, has customers from all around the world, especially India, East and south African countries, CIS, East Asia, China.

Faragam Company producing and packing Bitumen 60/70 under international standard regulations and exporting to esteemed customers without any limitation by the best quality and competitive price.
