General description of bitumen grade 10
Bitumen grade 10 is most consumable hard asphalt which is semi solid grade of pure petroleum bitumen categorized in polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons is normally used for different purposes in the construction business.
Uses of bitumen number 10
Bitumen number 10 uses in the chemical, fuel, paints, lacquers, varnishes, paper-pulp-board, textile processing, road constraction;pavment ,crack seal and repairment, civil works, roofing, construction industries; sealing and insulating buildings, adhesive, construction materials additive, dust-binding, coating, insulating and impregnating agent, make rubber and plastic products. The blown asphalt 115/15 products are for paving,roofing; 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 asphalt 115/15 include roofing, pipe coating, portland cement pavement, hydraulic applications, paint manufacturing.
Packing of bitumen #10
The atdm is manufacturer of bitumen #10 in various packing including kraft bag, meltable plastic bag, drum and bulk,it is made by hot air in a controlled process until the desired specification is reached. The atdm bitumen #10 can be supplied in volume quantity as well. Bitumen #10 means softening point is 115°c and penetration is 15 desimillimiter is produced in compliance and conformity to astm standard and meets the following specification.
Guaranty/warranty of bitumen 10
Atdm guaranty the quality of bitumen 10 with arrangement of international inspector to check quality and quantity of the bitumen on each shipment during the loading to vessel and controlling the production by qc team via batch test report before shipping. Atdm guaranty the quality to meet with astm/en 13304:2009.
Bitumen grade 30
Bitumen grade 30 is softer grade compare bitumen number 10 with softening point of 30 +5 and softening point approx. 70C and it is available in bag and drum but in summer time it is risky to take it in bag due leakage of bitumen 30 inside of container. Bitumen No.30 is producing by bitumen #60 and after heating up and lost 5% of total weight the first grade of bitumen is number 30.
Bitumen number #40
Bitumen number #40 is made by extract of bitumen #60 and it is very soft grade of oxidised asphalt that should be packed in steel drum.It is flexible bitumen while the softening point is high.This type of asphalt is useful to use in road construction to keep the asphalt stable against hot season and movment.
Uses of bitumen #10 #30 #40
1. For underground moisture, waterproofing works
2. For nuclear power engineering, pipeline engineering, bottom anticorrosion, asphalt production of the production
3. For waterproofing membrane, moisture-proof paper production, etc.
4. For Anti-corrosion paint and waterproof production
5. Used for road and bridge caulking use
