Oxidized Bitumen 115/15 is also known as Blown Bitumen 115/15 or R115/15. It is one of the hard grades of Oxidized Bitumen produced in continuous or staggered blowing ways. Blown Bitumen 115/15 made by pure bitumen, Penetration Bitumen 60/70, as a raw material in fully controlled conditions and heated bitumen 60/70 aeration by passing very hot air through it to obtain a final product with required properties. R115/15 is defined by its softening point and needle penetration as same as other grades of Bitumen.
Oxidized Bitumen 115/15 gets rubbery property during aeration procedure. This property helps Blown Bitumen be used in many industries, especially invaluable industries such as the Petroleum industry.
Oxidized Bitumen R115/15 is defined by two numbers which are softening point and needle penetration, respectively. For this grade, softening point is equal to 115 and needle penetration is equal to 15 desi-millimeter. These parameters are measured by an international test method named ASTM.
Based on this method, softening point and penetration degree are obtained by ASTM D36 and ASTM D5, respectively. For more information, you can refer to the Test Data Sheet (TDS) section.
PUB-LTD manufactured Oxidized Bitumen 115/15 (or Blown Bitumen 115/15) is used in numerous industrial applications and operations. It has rubber property more than previous grades; because of its especial property in oxidization procedure. It is used in the production of especial paints, civil works, construction, road construction, roofing, facing, flooring, as anti-slip layer components, undercarriage sealant in the cars and automobile industry, in the pilling industry, electrical operations, cable coating, oil and gas pipelines coating, crack sealing, road repair operations, pulp papers, bituminous products, textile, joint filling compound, sound-reducing agent, dust proofing, waterproofing, lacquers, varnishes, pavements, fuel combination, and paving.
Also, it’s used as raw material for adhesive, insulation, isolation bitumen membrane sheet, chemical, especial bitumen-based paints and colors to protect metal structures from corrosion, hydraulic applications and operations, Portland cement pavements, as a base for synthetic turf, producing rubber and plastic production.
Heating Bitumen in most final uses is a critical stage. Generally, the most important thing in this procedure is heat control. Temperature and heat control can affect various aspects of the product, including its quality. The safe and recommended maximum temperature is 230℃.
All Oxidized Bitumen is not hazardous at below 100℃ during shipping operations. Heating and heat transfer should be control. Without good heat transfer may cause overheating and release low flash vapors, which these unwanted side products have a higher fire risk.
Also, melted bitumen should not be left in the boiler to get cold. Because it can cause overheating and needs more positional energy. Furthermore, placement and installing any temperature and pressure monitoring and control devices are very important. Because if their placement is not true, thermometers can’t display the real temperature that it can leads to poor monitoring and thermal conductivity.
Everyone who works in Oxidized Bitumen plants should be wear gloves, masks (especial protective masks), and safety glasses. For more information, please refer to MSDS.
