Manufacturer of cutback bitumen RC 800

General description of bitumen RC800

Cutback bitumen RC800 is dissolved of bitumen in the solvents of kerosene. In many countries, kerosene and other volatile petroleum derived products are added as a cutter or cutback agent to bitumen to reduce (or cutback) the viscosity of the bitumen. The mixture obtained may be called cutback bitumen.

The reduction in viscosity of the bitumen aids the construction of seal coats in road pavements as the softened mixture wets the chips more easily. The cutback agent evaporates from the seal coat, the cutback agent becoming a negligible component of the seal coat a few months after application. If significant amounts of the cutback agent remain in the seal coat an unwanted long term softening effect may result.

Uses of cut back bitumen RC800

Cutback agents are used to lower the viscosity of bitumen when it is applied as a primer to the surface of a road pavement aggregate base course or substrate. Kerosene is used as a bitumen cutback agent at different concentrations according to local conditions and requirements.

The cutback bitumen is ideal for prime coat and cold applied because of easy uses and no need to thinning and heating.

Cutback bitumen RC800 consists of the initial incorporation of asphalt into the surface of non-asphalt-based course preparatory to any superimposed treatment of construction.

The cutback asphalt RC800 applies to waterproofing of surfaces, plug capillary voids, coat and bond loose mineral particles.

Packing of cutback bitumen RC-800

Packing of cutback Asphalt RC800 is in a new thick steel drum on the pallet to prevent any leak inside of container and bulk in the bitutainer and tanker.

Guaranty/warranty of cutback asphalt RC800

ATDM guarantees the quality of cutback RC800 with the arrangement of an international inspector to check the quality and quantity of the bitumen on each shipment during the loading to the vessel and control the production by QC team via batch test report before shipping. ATDM guaranty the quality to meet with ASTM/EN 15322:2009
