Oxidized Bitumen 150/5

Description of Oxidized Bitumen 150/5

Oxidized Bitumen 150/5 supplied by PARS BITUMEN is based on pure petroleum bitumen which is made by blowing Vacuum Bottom to 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 which is normally used for different purposes in the construction, insulation and road industries. PARS Bitumen 150/5 receives double heat temperature (200ᵒ-300ᵒC) against the softening point to have flow and viscosity. Normally heating of such hard Oxidized Bitumen should be arranged via hot oil by circulation inside of the isolated tank. Oxidized Bitumen 150/5 produced from Vacuum Bottom is blown by hot air in a controlled process until the desired specification is reached. PARS BITUMEN Oxidized Bitumen 150/5 is designated by two numbers to indicate the softening point and penetration grades. By Oxidized Bitumen 150/5, it means the softening point of 150°c and penetration of 15 desi millimeter which is accordance with ASTM international standard.


For the sake of  Quality assurance, PARS BITUMEN accepts supervision of international inspectors to check the quality and quantity of the PARS BITUMEN 150/5 Bitumen during production and loading. Although the quality control of factory is supervised and controlled by professional Quality Control engineers with the use of batch test report before each shipment. PARS BITUMEN products completely comply with ASTM quality issues and standards.

Applications of Oxidized Bitumen 150/5

Oxidized Bitumen 150/5 is applied 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, also for making rubber and plastic products. PARS BITUMEN 150/5 bitumen are used for paving, roofing, asphalt-based paints for corrosion protection of metals, in lining public works structures, adhesives in electrical laminates, base for synthetic turf. Also some typical applications of  PARS BITUMEN 150/5 consists of roofing, pipe coating, hydraulic applications,  paint manufacturing and coating in hot regions.

Cautions for Application of Oxidized Bitumen 150/5

Before applying PARS BITUMEN 150/5 Oxidized Bitumen, Clean the intended surface and dry it. Make the surface clean and free of loose particles, dust, curing products, irregularities, and slurries. In case of using PARS BITUMEN 150/50 bitumen on dirty or wet areas the bitumen 150/5 may be easily removed.

Storage and handling of Oxidized Bitumen 150/5

PARS BITUMEN, Oxidized Bitumen 150/5 is valid for the period of 10 years use in the condition of multi-time heat and cold conditions, please refer to MSDS standard specifications for further information. The best Storage conditions for bitumen 150/5 is to be at sheltered areas in order to be safe from rain and sun shine.
