What is Bitumen 40/50?
It is a kind of bitumen which is produced during the process of oxidation of vacuum bottom (the bitumen production feedstock that derives from distillation tower residue in vacuum oil refineries) at bitumen production units in a manner that its penetration point (kind of test to indicate the hardness of bitumen) becomes between 40-50. Bitumen 40-50 has high flash point and high adhesion properties to aggregates, compatible with all types of
