Paving Grade Bitumen 50/70

1.Description of the product 

Paving grade bitumen 50/70 can be used primarily for asphalt concrete (AC) and stone mastic asphalt (SMA) in wearing courses, provided that the mixture complies with the requirements concerning resistance to rutting. The use of 50/70 bitumen for the production of base and binder courses also requires the verification of the mixture’s resistance to rutting. The use of 50/70 bitumen for the production of any layer of pavement designed to carry heavy, slow traffic (slow lanes, approaches to crossroads, etc.) is not recommended.
