Asphalt bitumens

Repsol Pave – Conventional

Repsol PAVE Asphalt Bitumens are hydrocarbon binders produced via petroleum distillation that exhibit a temperature dependent viscoelastic behavior and great chemical stability. They are also called penetration bitumens because this property is used to classify them.

Properties and applications

Bitumen is the component that agglomerates and gives cohesion in bituminous mixtures and is mainly responsible for their properties. Its consistency can be modified by temperature, which allows its handling, the covering of aggregate, the compaction of the mixtures, and its suitable behavior at service temperatures. After performing a suitable selection of the basket of crude oils, Repsol obtains Repsol PAVE Asphalt Bitumens that meet the most demanding specifications.
