Cutback Bitumen MC-800
Cutback Bitumen MC-800 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-800 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 – Use as damp-proof membranes in concrete floors particularly for small repairs or where extensions are keyed-in to existing structures.
Uses of Cutback Bitumen MC-800
Cutback bitumen MC-800 consist of initial incorporation of asphalt into the surface of non-asphalt base course preparatory to any superimpose treatment of construction. Furthermore cutback asphalt MC-800 applying to waterproofing of surfaces, plug capillary voids, coat and bond loose mineral particles.
Cutback agents use to lower the viscosity of bitumen when it apply as a primer to the surface of a road pavement aggregate base course or substrate.
Meanwhile We use Kerosene as a bitumen cutback agent at different concentrations according to local conditions and requirements.
However Cutback bitumen is ideal for prime coat. Also it apply as cold because of easy uses and no need to thinning and heating.
Packing of Cutback Bitumen MC800
Packing of cutback bitumen MC-800 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.
