Cutback Bitumen SC800

General description of Cutback Bitumen SC800

Cutback Bitumen SC800 is dissolved of bitumen in solvents of kerosene. Also in many countries kerosene and other volatile petroleum derived products are added as a cutter or cutback agent to bitumen to reduce (or cutback) the viscosity of the bitumen. Mixture obtained, called cutback bitumen.

Reduction in viscosity of bitumen aids construction of seal coats in road pavements as softened mixture wets chips more easily. Cutback agent evaporates from seal coat, it becoming a negligible component of seal coat a few months after application. Also if significant amounts of the cutback agent remain in the seal coat an unwanted long term softening effect may result.

Uses of Cutback Bitumen SC800

Cutback bitumen SC800 consist of initial incorporation of asphalt into the surface of non-asphalt based course preparatory to any superimposed treatment of construction.

In addition cutback asphalt SC800 applying to waterproofing of surfaces, plug capillary voids, coat and bond loose mineral particles.

Cutback agents are used to lower the viscosity of bitumen when it is applied as a primer to the surface of a road pavement aggregate base course or substrate. Furthermore kerosene is used as a bitumen cutback agent at different concentrations according to local conditions and requirements.

Cutback bitumen is ideal for prime coat and cold applied because of easy uses. Also its no need to thinning and heating.


Packing of Cutback Bitumen SC800

Packing of cutback bitumen SC800 is in new thick steel drum. This drums are on pallet to prevent any leak inside of container. Also bulk in bitutainer and tanker is possible.

Guaranty/warranty of cutback asphalt SC800

PUB-LTD guaranty the quality of cutback SC800 with arrangement of international inspector. By check quality and quantity of the bitumen on each shipment during the loading to vessel. Also controlling the production by QC team via batch test report before shipping. PUB-LTD guaranty the quality to meet with ASTM/EN15322:2009
