Features of bitumen penetration grade 200/300
Bitumen Penetration Grade 200/300 is a standard penetration grade Bitumen usually used as a Paving Grade Bitumen suitable for road construction and for the production of asphalt pavements with superior properties. This grade of Bitumen is mainly used in the manufacture of hot mix asphalt for bases and wearing courses. Penetration Grade Bitumen supplied by Petro Ayegh Espadana manufacture is petroleum grade bitumen, manufactured from fractional / vacuum distillation of crude oil. The Bitumen which supplied by Petro Ayegh Espadana Co is produced from the vacuum residue (short residue) feedstock. Penetration Grade bitumen’s are specified by the penetration and softening point test. The designation is by penetration range only. The penetration grade bitumen have a thermoplastic property which causes the material to soften at high temperatures and to harden at lower temperatures. This unique temperature/ viscosity relationship is important when determining the performance parameters such as the adhesion, rheology, durability and application temperatures of bitumen.
Penetration Grade Bitumen is a standard bitumen usually used as a Paving Grade Bitumen essential for road construction and for the production of asphalt pavements with superior properties, and it’s very important once it bounds the aggregates and creates a unique cohesion and stability to the bituminous mix.
Application of bitumen penetration grade 200/300
Bitumen 200/300 is suitable for road construction and for the asphalt pavements with superior properties. This type of bitumen used in the manufacture of hot mix asphalt for bases and wearing courses.
Guaranty and safety of bitumen penetration 200/300
Petro Ayegh Espadana manufacture guaranty the quality of bitumen penetration grade 200/300 with the arrangement of the international inspectors to check quality and quantity of the bitumen penetration grade 200/300 during the loading to the vessel and controlling the production by QC by batch test report before shipping. PAE Company guarantees the quality to meet with ASTM.
