Cutback Bitumen Medium Curing

Cutback Bitumen Medium Curing Cutback Bitumen Medium Curing use petroleum solvents for dissolving asphalt cement. The solvents are variously called distillate, diluents or cutter stock. If the solvent used in making the cutback asphalt is highly volatile, it will quickly escape by evaporation. Solvents of lower volatility evaporate more slowly. On the basis of the…

Cutback Bitumen

Medium Curing Cutback Bitumen Cutback Bitumen – MC grades cutback bitumen is simply a combination of asphalt cement and petroleum solvent. Like emulsions, cutbacks are used because they reduce asphalt viscosity for lower temperature uses (tack coats, fog seals, slurry seals, stabilization material). Similar to emulsified asphalts, after cutback asphalt is applied the petroleum solvent…
