Oxidized bitumen 90/10 is semi solid oxidized grade of pure petroleum bitumen categorized in polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons is normally used for different purposes in the construction business.It is based on petroleum bitumen which is made by oxidized asphalt 60/70 by hot air. The numbers manifest the midpoint of the material’s softening point and penetration degree accordingly. The softening point value is measured by the Ring and Ball method as determined by ASTM D36 regulations and standards. The penetration value is in 1/10 mm as determined by IP49 or ASTM- D5.

Uses of Blown Bitumen 90/10

  • Oxidized bitumen is used as sealing of expansion joints.
  • Oxidized bitumen is used as repair of joints or cracks.
  • Oxidized bitumen is used as fixation of parquet floors.
  • Oxidized bitumen is used as adhesive to be used in thermal insulation.
  • Oxidized bitumen is used as repair of unexposed cracks.
  • Oxidized bitumen is used as bonding of wet briquettes
  • Oxidized bitumen is used in various industries like roofing, isolation, insulation flooring, mastics, pipe coatings, electrical applications.

Technical Advantages of Blown Bitumen 90/10

  • Durability
  • Flexibility
  • Water Resistant
  • Chemical Stability

Compared to paving grade bitumen:

  • Reduced temperature susceptibility
  • Exhibits a more ‘solid’ nature at ambient temperatures
  • High penetration index

Applications of Blown Bitumen 90/10

Oxidized asphalt 90/10 uses in the chemical, fuel, lacquers, varnishes, paint paper-pulp-board, textile processing, road construction, pavement, civil works, roofing, construction industries; sealing and insulating buildings, adhesive, crack seal and repairmen, construction materials additive, dust-binding, insulating and impregnating agent, make rubber and plastic products. The asphalt R 90/10 products are for paving. also used in asphalt-based paints for corrosion protection of metals, in lining public works structures, adhesives in electrical laminates, base for synthetic turf; typical uses for oxidized bitumen 90/10 used also for water-proof application and corrosion resistance for pipe coating, Portland cement pavement, hydraulic applications, paint manufacturing, caulking, mastic, and damp proofing. Blown bitumen R 90/10 is using insulation and isolation bitumen membrane sheet. Also, Car undercoating Automobile industry is specially required for Blown Asphalt. Vehicle undercoating material is based on Bitumen. Bitumen provides excellent waterproof, dust proof and noise proof for automobile undercoating.
