OXIDIZED BITUMEN

85/25, 85/40, 90/15, 115/15, 135/10, 155/6 

Tiki Oxidized bitumen comply with International Standards. Tiki Oxidized bitumen has got a range of uses. It can be used in industries as an adhesive, protective coating, bonding agent, electric insulator and structures below ground. Because of their softening point, it shows excellent physical stability, no exudation or bleeding in contact with highly absorptive material and a remarkable resistance against atmospheric corrosion.

Oxidized bitumen conforms to IS: 702/1988 and is characterized mainly by its softening point and penetration value is obtained by penetration apparatus according to IS:1203/78
