Oxidized Bitumen Analyze
Oxidized Bitumen TDS:
Oxidized Bitumen TDS is a peculiar amorphous material which is generally in liquid form when discharged by oxidation plants at a temperature ranging from 240° to 300° C., and becomes solid or pasty at ambient temperatures. While being relatively hot, it`s viscous, whereas when in pasty or solid state it possesses a fair degree of elasticity. Both in liquid and in plastic or solid form oxidized bitumen is highly insulating material with good adhesion properties, respect to almost any solid material.
Blown asphalt grades are produced by passing air through penetration grades. This process gives the asphalt more rubbery properties than its original formula and they are simply harder bitumen.
Hard bitumen under controlled temperature conditions is widely used as an anti-slip layer compound in the piling industry, for the manufacture of roofing felts, the roofing and waterproofing industries, for sound dampening felts and under carriage sealant in the automotive industry, electric cable joint protection, joint filling compound, sealant compound and many others. Also used in sealing saw cuts and joints where expected movements are minimum. It`s also used in manufacturing of bituminous marine mastic for gas and oil pipeline joints.
Difference grades of oxidized asphalt depends to time of blowing & additives.
