Bitumen

Bitumen

Bitumen is an oil substance . it is a semi-solid hydrocarbon product by removing the lighter fractions( such as liquid petroleum gas , petrol and diesel) from heavy crude oil during the refining process.

it is obtained from 87% carbon, 11% hydrogen and 2% oxygen (bye weight). bitumen is commonly known as asphalt. bitumen is widly used in the construction of asphalt road it is commonly used to build high ways , motor ways and rail networks.

bitumen has excellent water-proofing properties and is wildly used for making roofing products along with a range of other household and industrial application , from emulsion paints to sound-proofing.

for the marine construction industry bitumen is used for hydraulic application such as canal lining , under water tunnels , river bank protection, dam construction and sea defences.

there are also numerous industrial applications like roofing felt material, printing inks ,packaging paper, linoleum,electrical cable.

penetration grade bitumen:

penetration grade bitumen is commonly used in road surfacing, suitable for road construction and for the production of asphalt pavement with superior properties.

this grade of bitumen is mainly used in the spraying and chip properties.penetration grade bitumen is petroleum grade bitumen , manufactured from fractional/ vacuum distillation of crude oil.

this grade of bitumen are defined by the penetration and softening point test.

the penetration grade bitumens have a thermoplastic property which causes the material to soften at high temperatures and to harden at lower temperatures.

we provide different grades as follow:

Bitumen 40/50

Bitumen 40/50 Bitumen 40/50 is suitable for road construction and for the asphalt pavement with superior properties.

The bitumen is provided during the presses of oxidation of vacuum bottom in bitumen production unit.

Due to its high air blowing and penetration , it is used in tropical areas with the warm weather.

It is not softened at high temperature and does not fail its qualities.

bitumen packaging

Raya commercial petrochemical company is able to providing you bitumen in various type of packaging according to your request.

we are capable to perform all the operations of drumming by modern facilities. we recommend our customer to use steel drums for their packaging methods to waste their commodity and money.

we carry out drumming services on various scales like 150-kilogram, 180-kilogram and 210-kilogram drums as well standard filling.

quality control progress is done for every drum.we will also label your packaging if required. other provided packaging include:

poly bags/ jumbo bag (bitubags)

bitubags and jumbo bags can be a cost efficient solution to alternate for bitumen drums . bitubags can be in two types: 1000 kg and 300 kg. the 300 kg bitubags contain a two layer cover , which the first tears up and second burns and melts in the destination tanker.

felexitank

flexitank is specially designed for bulk liquid cargo with high filling temperature like liquid bitumen/ asphalt - it is suitable for all kinds of liquid road bitumens.

Bitutainer

feet containers used for the transportation of bitumen are called bitutainer. these containers have two layers, and bitumen gets stored in the inner and hot oil the outer one.
