Cutback Bitumen Medium Curing (MC)3000
Cutback Bitumen MC3000 is dissolved of bitumen in solvents of kerosene. many countries derive kerosene and other volatile petroleum products and add as a cutter or cutback agent to bitumen because reduce the viscosity of the bitumen.
In addition reduction in viscosity of bitumen aids construction of seal coats in pavements as the softened mixture wets chips more easily.
Cutback agent evaporates from the seal coat, it becoming a negligible component of seal coat a few months after application. In addition significant amounts of cutback agent remain in seal coat unwanted long term softening effect may result.
Uses of Cutback Asphalt MC-3000
Cutback bitumen MC-3000 consist of initial incorporation of asphalt into the surface of non-asphalt based course preparatory to any superimposed treatment of construction. Furthermore cutback asphalt MC-3000 mostly apply to waterproofing of surfaces, plug capillary voids, coat and bond loose mineral particles. Cutback agents also 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.
We use Kerosene as a bitumen cutback agent at different concentrations according to local conditions and requirements.
The cutback bitumen is ideal for prime coat and cold applied. This property is because of easy uses and no need to thinning and heating.
Guaranty/Warranty of Cutback Asphalt MC-3000
PUB-LTD guaranty the quality of cutback MC-3000 with arrangement of international inspector. By checking quality and quantity of bitumen on each shipment during loading to vessel. Controlling the production by QC team via batch test report before shipping. PUB-LTD guaranty the quality to meet with ASTM/EN15322:2009.
Packing of Cutback Bitumen MC-3000
Packing of cutback bitumen MC-3000 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.
