Penetration Grade Bitumen
Penetration Grade Bitumen is commonly used in road surfacing, and some industrial applications.
Penetration Grade Bitumen supplied by Bitumen Export Group is petroleum based bitumen, manufactured from pure Vacuum Bottom (VB) feedstock.
Penetration Grade of bitumen products is designated by the penetration and softening point test. The penetration grade bitumen products 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.
