Cutback Bitumen MC-3000
Cutback Bitumen MC-3000 is a medium curing (MC) cut-back asphalt consisting of penetration grade asphalt cement and diluent or cutter of medium volatility. The diluent temporarily reduces the viscosity of the asphalt cement for ease of handling and application. After application the diluent evaporates, leaving asphalt cement to perform its function. Petrochemical Trade Cutback MC-3000 conforms to the specifications of ASTM D2127. (Medium-Curing Asphalt) or AASHTO M82a) Roofing – As a waterproofing membrane and as an adhesive to stick chippings onto a flat, horizontal roof to minimize the effects of weathering from the sun. b) . Damp-Proof Courses – Used as damp-proof membranes in concrete floors particularly for small repairs or where extensions are keyed-in to existing structures.
However The specification for Rapid Curing (RC) Cutback Asphalts applies to liquid asphaltic materials. In the form of asphalt cement combined with a petroleum solvent of a gasoline type.
Uses of cut back Bitumen 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. Meanwhile 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.
However We use Kerosene as a bitumen cutback agent at different concentrations according to local conditions and requirements.
Meanwhile 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.
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.
