bitumen 150/5 is hardest oxidized grade

bitumen 150/5

What is bitumen 150/5?

bitumen 150/5 typically refers to the penetration grade of bitumen, indicating its consistency and behavior under specific conditions. Here’s a breakdown of the numbers:

  1. Penetration Value:

    • The first number (150) represents the penetration value of the bitumen. Penetration is a measure of the hardness or softness of the bitumen, indicating the depth in tenths of a millimeter that a standard needle penetrates the bitumen sample under specific conditions. A lower penetration value indicates a harder bitumen, while a higher value indicates a softer bitumen.
  2. Temperature:

    • The second number (5) represents the test temperature in degrees Celsius at which the penetration value is determined. In this case, the penetration test is conducted at 5 degrees Celsius.

bitumen 150/5  means

  • The penetration value is 150 (measured in tenths of a millimeter).
  • The penetration test is conducted at a temperature of 5 degrees Celsius.

Uses of bitumen 150/5

The bitumen 150/5 uses in the chemical, fuel, paints, lacquers, varnishes, paper-pulp-board, textile processing, road construction, pavement ,crack seal and repairmen, 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 150/5 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 include roofing, pipe coating, Portland cement pavement, hydraulic applications, paint manufacturing.

Packing of 150/5

The ATDM is manufacturer of blown asphalt 150/5 in various packing including kraft bag, meltable plastic bag, drum and bulk from penetration grade bitumen, which is blown by hot air in a controlled process until the desired specification is reached. The ATDM oxidised bitumen 150/5 can be supplied in any grade and are designated by two numbers to indicate the softening point and penetration ranges. The oxidized grade 150/5 means softening point is 150°c and penetration is 15 desimillimiter is produced in compliance and conformity to ASTM standard and meets the following specification.

Guaranty/warranty of the bitumen

ATDM guaranty the quality of 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.
