OXIDIZED BITUMEN GRADES

Oxidized Bitumen grades are produced by passing air through soft bitumen under controlled temperature conditions. This process gives the bitumen more rubbery properties than penetration or hard grade bitumen, and enables the product to serve a variety of uses in industrial applications. These grades are suitable for sealing saw cuts and joints where there is expected to be the minimum amount of moving in the joint. Their wide temperature range prevents bleeding in high temperature applications. They can also be used for industrial applications such as pipe coating, roofing, waterproofing, flooring, mastics, sound damping, carpet backing, adhesive and electrical applications.
