Description of PENETRATION BITUMEN 160/220

The penetration bitumen 160/220 that is made by PetroNaft Co. is a pure petroleum grade of bitumen that is formed from a vacuum bottom by passing hot air. After breaking the crude oil and removing the hydrocarbons, the remaining residue is used to make this product. It has a softening point that ranges from 35 to 43 degrees Celsius and a penetration that is between 160 and 220 desi millimeters. When heated, the thermoplastic property of penetration grade bitumen 160-220 causes it to soften, but when it is allowed to cool, it returns to its rigid state.

This property is analogous to that of a synthetic resin. This grade has an exceptionally high viscosity in compared to the others in its category. These grades, which are referred to as soft grades, are applied in regions that have a chilly environment, such as the cities located in northern Canada. Because we were able to successfully monitor the operational conditions throughout the process, we were able to manufacture bitumen that was both pure and of a high quality, regardless of the grade.


Bitumen 160/220 is a kind of penetrating bitumen made by Petro Naft, a major player in the petrochemical sector. Its top-notch bitumen is extensively used in the building of roads, waterproofing, and insulation. It is the perfect option for many applications because to its remarkable physical and mechanical qualities.

Bitumen 160/220 has great durability and weather resistance, which is one of its main benefits. This kind of bitumen is a popular option for road surface and roofing applications since it can tolerate high temperatures and challenging weather conditions. Also, it has superb adhesive qualities that guarantee a solid link between it and the surface it is applied to.

Applications of PENETRATION BITUMEN 160/220

  • Penetration Bitumen 160/220 is used as a raw material in the manufacture of insulating products, as well as for route sealing and coating, road repair, road construction, and spray bitumen.
  • Because of its high degree of penetration, it is appropriate for use in a broad range of product formulations, including those for the manufacturing of waterproof membranes, lubricants, and bitumen-based specialist paints.
  • Bitumen 160-220 for industrial uses produced by PetroNaft is designed to provide compatibility with polypropylene polymers for the formulation of bitumen – polymer compounds used in the production of waterproofing membranes and other industrial uses due to its penetration data and specific chemical characteristics.
  • The product is an excellent bituminous basis for oxidized bitumen, pipe protective coatings, mastics and bituminous paints, and specific lubricants.

PetroNaft Company produces penetration bitumen 160/220 of the best quality in a variety of types and exports it from Iran and the United Arab Emirates to other nations worldwide.
