Bitumen 60/70

Bitumen 60/70 is a type of refinery bitumen that is obtained from the vacuum aeration of the distillation tower. Its penetration degree is between 60 and 70. This grade of bitumen is produced through a blowing process in a refinery, just like other penetration grades. Due to its medium air blowing and penetration, it is suitable for mild areas and is highly recommended for use in temperate climates. Bitumen 60/70 is mainly used for the pavement of roads suitable for commercial traffic. This type of bitumen is commonly used in road construction, insulation, building construction, and liquid bitumen production. It is more appropriate for use in temperate climate regions. In this regard, Sebco is one of the companies that produce high-quality bitumen 60/70. Here are some features of Bitumen 60/70: 1. Softening point: Its softening point is between 49 and 56 degrees Celsius. This means that this bitumen hardens at temperatures below 49°C and softens at temperatures above 56°C. 2. Boiling point: The boiling point of 70/60 bitumen is between 220 and 260 degrees Celsius. 3. Adhesion: The adhesion of this type is good. This means that this bitumen can adhere well to other surfaces. 4. Permeability: Its permeability is relatively low, which means that this bitumen is resistant to water penetration. 5. Dynamic softening temperature: Its dynamic softening temperature is between 35 and 45 degrees Celsius. 6. Dynamic friction coefficient: its dynamic friction coefficient is between 0.4 and 0.6. Bitumen 60/70 is available in different packing options including: Steel Drum, Jumbo Bag, Bitutainer, and Bulk.
