At the bitumen production reactor, during the air acting, the mixture of the two Vacuum Bottom (VB) and Vacuum Silas (VS) feedstock is put under a degree of pressure and temperature (between 200-300˚C) of which the hydrogen atoms content in the bitumen molecules oxidized, and obtains with higher hydrocarbons polymerization reaction that has lower penetration and higher softening points than the primary pure bitumen. Bitumen 85/25 has a softening point of 85 and a permeability of 25.

Oxidized bitumen is characterized by having a high thermal amplitude. Oxidized bitumen is flexible to cold, doesn't sag at high temperatures, and has good adhesion. Any kind of work can be done with it. Many different grades of oxidized bitumen are available.

Availability of oxidized bitumen 85/25

Oxidized Bitumen 85/25 is usually available in:

  • New Steel Drums (185 or 200 Kg)
  • Melt-able and craft bag
  • Craft box

Oxidized Bitumen 85/25 usage:

Oxidized Bitumen or Blown grade bitumen has a wide variety of industrial applications:

  • As a bonding BITUMEN for roofing sheet membranes.
  • As a hot applied waterproofing layer
  • Carpet tile manufacture
  • As a raw material for liquid BITUMEN coatings • For production of bituminous paints
  • rust proof for pipe coatings

Oxidized Bitumen high softening temperature quality them as the excellent sealant for prevention from bleeding in high temperature applications.

Applications of oxidized bitumen 85/25

This can be used for a wide range of applications.

  • This bitumen is ideal for construction, paving and road maintenance.
  • One of the canal lining's components is oxidized bitumen 85/25. This is also suitable to building embankments and dams in hydro projects.
  • In roofing industry it can be used for roof coatings. It can also be used as a thin bitumen membrane beneath the shingles. It is also a raw material for carriage roofing compounds and liquid roof coatings.
  • It is one of the most used flooring materials. Acid and alkali proof bitumen mastic that can be used in a wide range of industries.
  • In oil and gas industry it can be used for coating pipelines. Coating the pipelines with oxidized bitumen 85/25 can protect pipes from corrosion and rust.
  • It is a raw material of lithium-ion batteries and wires. It can seal the electrical junction boxes. It is a good adhesive for laminated boards.

Oxidized Bitumen 85/25 Packing

Different types of bitumen packing is available for oxidized bitumen including:

  • Polyester nylon
  • Melt-able poly amide bag
  • cartoon-pallet-shrink
  • cartoon
