Cutback Bitumen Rapid Curing (RC)

Rapid curing cutback bitumen

Rapid Curing Cutback Bitumen is made by reducing the viscosity of and ordinary bitumen by adding mostly petroleum type solvent. Cutback Bitumen are used because their viscosity is lower than that of neat asphalt and can thus be used in low temperature applications.

RC Cutback Bitumen

After an RC cutback is applied the solvent evaporates away and only the Bitumen is left. A rapid curing cutback bitumen are said to cure as the petroleum solvent evaporates.

Cutback bitumen rapid curing

Rapid curing Cutback bitumen are typically used as prime coats and tack coats. Generally, Cutback Bitumen are divided into three groups depending on their volatility of the solvent added:

Liquid, rapid curing bitumen

The rapid curing cutback bitumen products are prepared with a light, rapidly evaporating diluent such as a naphtha or gasoline.

General description of cutback asphalt RC800

Cutback bitumen RC800 is dissolved of bitumen in solvents of kerosene. In many countries kerosene and other volatile petroleum derived products are added as a cutter or a cutback agent to bitumen to reduce (or cutback) the viscosity of the bitumen. The mixture obtained may be called cutback bitumen.

The reduction in viscosity of the bitumen aids the construction of seal coats in road pavements as the softened mixture wets the chips more easily. The cutback agent evaporates from the seal coat, the cutback agent becoming a negligible component of the seal coat a few months after application. If significant amounts of the cutback agent remain in the seal coat an unwanted long term softening effect may result.

Uses of cut back asphalt RC800

Cutback agents 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. Kerosene is used as a bitumen cutback agent at different concentrations according to local conditions and requirements.

The cutback bitumen is ideal for prime coat and cold applied because of easy uses and no need to thinning and heating.

Cutback bitumen RC800 consist of the initial incorporation of asphalt into the surface of non-asphalt based course preparatory to any superimposed treatment of construction.

The cutback asphalt RC800 applying to the waterproofing of surfaces, plug capillary voids, coat and bond loose mineral particles.

Packing of cutback bitumen 

Packing of cutback bitumen is in new thick steel drum on pallet to prevent any leak inside of the container also bulk in bitutainer and tanker.

     Analysis of bitumen RC800:

Eagle Petrochem company guaranty the quality of cutback RC800 with arrangement of international inspector to check the quality and quantity of the bitumen on each shipment during the loading to vessel and controlling the production by QC team via batch test report before shipping. Eagle Petrochem company guaranty the quality to meet with ASTM/EN 15322:2009
