Bitumen 40/50

Sebco Bitumen 40/50 is a type of bitumen produced through the aeration process in bitumen production units. The raw material for bitumen production is derived from the bottom of the distillation tower in oil refineries. This process makes the bitumen permeable, and its penetration value ranges from 40 to 50 mm under standard laboratory conditions. This grade of bitumen, known as the paving grade, is commonly used in road construction and asphalt pavements.

Sebco Company is renowned for producing high-quality new metal barrels for the major export of 40/50 bitumen. Sebco bitumen is available in 160kg and 240kg export barrels, flexitanks, and bulk packaging on pallets.

The advantages of using Bitumen 40/50 include its suitability for road construction and asphalt pavement and its application in manufacturing hot mix asphalt for bases and wearing courses. It is also commonly used on roads in tropical regions.

Sebco Bitumen 40/50 is available in steel drums, jumbo bags, bulk, and Bitutainers.
