Description of Oxidized Bitumen 150/5

Oxidized bitumen 150/5 is based on petroleum bitumen which is made by blowing bitumen 60/70 by hot air. This type of bitumen is hard and breakable. Oxidized bitumen 150/5 is the semi-solid oxidized grade of petroleum bitumen categorized in polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons is normally used for different purposes in the construction industries. bitumen 150/5 should be heated double temperature (200-300 °C) against the softening point to be able to have flow and viscosity. Normally heating of such hard oxidized bitumen should be arranged via hot oil by circulation inside of the isolated jacket. Bitumen oxide 150/5 from penetration grade bitumen, which is blown by hot air in a controlled process until the desired specification is reached. Bitumen Malaysia oxidized bitumen 150/5 can be supplied in any grade and are designated by two numbers to indicate the softening point and penetration ranges. The oxidized bitumen 150/5 means the softening point is 150 °C and penetration is 15 desi millimeter is produced in compliance and conformity with ASTM standard.
We at Bitumen Malaysia guarantee the quality of our oxidized bitumen 150/5 with the arrangement of the international inspector to check quality and quantity of the product during the loading to the vessel and controlling the production by QC by batch test report before shipping. We guarantee the quality to meet with ASTM standard.

Uses of oxidized bitumen 150/5

Oxidized bitumen 150/5 is used in the chemical, raw material for bitumen coat, lacquers, varnishes, paper-pulp-board, textile processing, pavement ,crack seal and repairmen, civil works, bitumen coat for piping, roofing, construction industries; sealing and insulating buildings, adhesive, construction materials additive, road construction, dust-binding, insulating and impregnating agent, isolation bitumen membrane sheet, make rubber and plastic products. bitumen 150/5 products are for paving, roofing; also used in asphalt-based paints for corrosion protection of metals, in lining public works structures, adhesives in electrical laminates, base for synthetic turf; typical uses for bitumen 150/5 include roofing, pipe coating, hydraulic applications, 150/5 is mainly using in paint manufacturing and coating in hot area.

Application of oxidized bitumen 150/5

Before using bitumen 150/5 surfaces must be dry, clean and free of loose particles, curing products, irregularities, and slurry. If you use this types of bitumen without cleaning the area the bitumen 150/5 will easily removed.

Storage and handling of oxidized bitumen 150/5
Oxidized bitumen 150/5 has 10 years validity with multi-time heating and cold, please refer to MSDS. It is better to keep the bitumen 150/5 under shelter and out of the rain, the sun.
Packing of oxidized bitumen 150/5
Bitumen Malaysia is a manufacturer of oxidized bitumen 150/5 in various of packaging options. Bitumen 150/5 is available in 25 kg meltable and craft bags, drums, and in bulk. Normally, oxidized bitumen is packed on the pallet and 40 bags can stack on the pallet. 20 pallet can load to the 20ft container.
