Oxidised Bitumen [OB]
Oxidised bitumen is mainly used for industrial purposes, such as roof insulation, flooring, industrial mastics, pipe coating, and paints.
Oxidised is categorised based on softening points and penetration rate. For example, oxidised bitumen 85/40 is a type of bitumen whose softening point is 85±5 degrees Centigrade and its penetration rate is 40±5 dmm.
Oxidised bitumen is also expected to make up for weight loss under heat.
The softening point in oxidised bitumen is much higher than in regular bitumen, causing lower thermal sensitivity.
The penetration index in oxidised bitumen is higher than in road construction bitumen.
Allianceco finds that supply chains play a critical role in bitumen’s markets. Companies are increasingly challenging their supply chains on multiple dimensions, including flexibility, cost reduction, predictable risk management and customer service levels.
We believe that a supply chain that is closely aligned with business strategy helps to advance business objectives and achieve sustained, profitable growth
