Bitumen 85-100 Supplier and Exporter
Iran bitumen penetration grade 85-100 is semi hard penetration grade bitumen used as paving grade bitumen. It is suitable for road construction and repair. It is also used for the production of asphalt pavements. Below you will find its technical specification. This grade of bitumen is mainly used in the manufacturing of hot mix asphalt for bases and wearing courses. Bitumen 85-100 is one of the most used bitumen grades and a basic material for all other bituminous products.
Softening point and penetration of bitumen 85-100
This penetration grade bitumen supplied by Iran Bitumen Co. is pure petroleum grade bitumen. It is manufactured from vacuum bottom by passing hot air. The bitumen supplied by Iran Bitumen Co. is produced from the remains of crude oil after cracking and removing its hydrocarbon. Penetration grade bitumen 85-100 has a penetration between 85~100 desi-millimeter and a softening point between 45 ~ 52C. The penetration grade bitumen 85-100 has a thermoplastic property which is similar to a synthetic resin material which gets softer with heating and hardens when cooled. This grade of bitumen 85/100 has very strong viscosity compared to other grades.
