Description of Oxidized Bitumen 105/35

Oxidized bitumen 105/35 is a good grade of oxidized asphalt to use as bonding compounds as hot melt adhesive at an application rate of approximately 1 Kg/m3 to bond the preformed sheets together and to structure which is made by bitumen 60/70 by hot air. Oxidized bitumen 105/35 is a semi-solid oxidized grade of pure petroleum bitumen manufactured by air-blowing through an asphalt flux. Special physical properties of its grade can be used in different applications in the construction business.
Bitumen Malaysia guarantee the quality of our oxidized bitumen 105/35 with the arrangement of the international inspector to check quality and quantity of the oxidized bitumen 105/35 during the loading to the vessel and controlling the production by QC by batch test report before shipping. Bitumen Malaysia guarantees the quality to meet with ASTM standard.

Uses of oxidized bitumen 105/35

Oxidized bitumen 105/35 is used in the chemical, fuel, lacquers, varnishes, paper-pulp-board, textile processing, road construction, pavement ,paint, crack seals and repairs civil works, roofing, construction business; sealing and insulating buildings, adhesive, construction materials additive, dust-binding, insulating and impregnating agent, make rubber and plastic products. They’re also used in asphalt-based paints for corrosion protection of metals, in lining public works structures, adhesives in electrical laminates, the base for synthetic turf; typical uses for bitumen 105/35 used also for water-proof application and corrosion resistance for pipe coating, Portland cement pavement, hydraulic applications, and paint manufacturing. Oxidized bitumen 105/35 is using insulation and isolation bitumen membrane sheet. Car undercoating in the automobile industry also uses this grade of oxidized bitumen. Vehicle undercoating material is based on oxidized bitumen. Bitumen provides excellent waterproof, dust proof and noise proof for automobile undercoating.

Application of oxidized bitumen 105/35

This grade of oxidized bitumen (105/35) should be heated double temperature against the softening point to be able to have flow and viscosity. To use oxidized bitumen 105/35, surfaces must be dry, clean and free of loose particles, formwork, curing products, irregularities, slurries, etc.

Storage and handling of oxidized bitumen 105/35

Bitumen 105/35 has 10 years validity with multi-time heating and cooling. Please refer to MSDS for more information.

Packing of oxidized bitumen 105/35

A few type of packing is available for customer’s purpose and conveniences. Bitumen Malaysia manufactures oxidized bitumen 105/35 and packed different types of packaging including in Kraft bags, meltable plastic bags, drums, and bulk. Oxidized bitumen 105/35 is a penetration-grade bitumen, which is blown by hot air in a controlled process until the desired specification is reached. Bitumen Malaysia’s oxidized bitumen 105/35 can be supplied in any grade and are designated by two numbers to show the softening point and penetration ranges. The bitumen grade 105/35 means the softening point is 105 and penetration is 35 desi millimeters. They are produced in compliance and conformity with ASTM standard and meets the following specification.
