Medium Curing Bitumen

Cutback Bitumen Africa – Medium Curing

MC-30, MC-70, MC-250, MC-800 and MC-3000

Medium Curing (MC) asphalt cement uses medium diluents of intermediate volatility generally in the kerosene boiling point range (MC-30, MC-70, MC-250, MC-800 and MC-3000).

The degree of liquidity developed in each case depends principally on the proportion of solvent to asphalt cement. To a minor degree, the liquidity of the Cutback Bitumen may be affected by the hardness of the base asphalt from which the cutback is made. The degree of fluidity results in several Grades of Cutback asphalt. Some quite fluid at ordinary temperatures and others somewhat more viscous. The more viscous grades may require a small amount of heating to make them fluid enough for construction operations.

The Medium Setting Grades designed for mixing with aggregates. Because these grades do not break immediately upon contact with aggregate. Mixes using them can remain workable for extended periods of time and lend themselves to cold mix stockpiles.

Tiger Cement Limited has the capability to Export and Supply the different Grades of Medium Curing Cutback Bitumen in compliance with National and International standards.
