Description of PENETRATION BITUMEN 60/70

Bitumen 60/70 is a type of asphalt commonly used in road construction and maintenance. It is a by product of the petroleum refining process and has a penetration grade of 60-70 tenths of a millimeter, indicating its medium-hard consistency. This type of bitumen is suitable for use in hot climates and has applications in waterproofing and roofing as well.

To provide a description of penetration Bitumen 60/70, we must pay close attention to how various sorts of Bitumens are tested after manufacture. This grade of Bitumen is called after the Bitumen penetration test. In this test procedure, a standard needle is inserted into a sample of Bitumen to determine the rate of penetration and estimate the Bitumen’s hardness.

Typically, Bitumen 60/70 is derived from crude oil. Similar to other grades of penetration, this grade is manufactured at a refinery by the blowing process. Due to its blowing and moderate air penetration, this type of Bitumen is neither too soft nor very hard. Bitumen 60.70, unlike other grades of Bitumen, requires no further processing. This sort of Bitumen is also known as direct run in the industry, indicating that it is generated straight from the vacuum distillation process. Bitumen 60-70 is less expensive than other asphalts (Bitumens) due to the fact that it does not need modification.


Sumerians, Assyrians, and many other ancient civilizations made substantial use of Bitumen. This substance was employed as an anti-humidity compound, to preserve wood, and for a variety of other applications, including embalming, sculpting, and decorating. In addition, Bitumen found in natural beds and baked bricks have been utilized as mastic in the building of temples, bridge foundations, streets, and homes.

In 1712 A.D., natural Bitumen stones were found in France, marking the birth of the current Bitumen business. Historically, bituminous materials were simply deposited in lumps on the surface of local roads and left to be progressively worn down and compacted by traffic. This approach was highly effective, and in a short amount of time, advancements in this sector were developed, such as powdering and heating the material before to usage. The asphalts were then compacted and hardened using a hot iron and a hammer. This substance, also known as Compressed Rock Asphalt, was used with great success on the streets of Europe, which have since spread worldwide.


Bitumen 60/70 is typically extracted from crude oil. This penetration grade, like others, is blown in a refinery. This Bitumen is neither soft nor hard due to blowing and mild air penetration. Unlike other grades of bitumen, 60.70 needs no processing. Direct run bitumen comes from vacuum distillation. Due to the fact that it does not need modification, bitumen 60-70 is less costly than other asphalts.

The production of Bitumen 60/70 involves the following steps:

  1. Crude oil distillation: Bitumen is derived from the distillation of crude oil. Crude oil is heated to high temperatures in a distillation tower, and the different components are separated based on their boiling points.

  2. Vacuum distillation: After the crude oil has been distilled, the heavy residue is further processed in a vacuum distillation unit to remove lighter fractions and produce a heavy residual oil.

  3. Blending: The heavy residual oil is blended with other additives to produce Bitumen 60/70. The blending process involves heating the residual oil and adding the required additives to achieve the desired properties.

  4. Quality control: After the blending process, the Bitumen 60/70 is subjected to quality control tests to ensure that it meets the required specifications for use in various applications.

Bitumen with a high degree of penetrability is referred to as soft Bitumen and is used in cold climates, whereas Bitumen with a low degree of penetrability is referred to as hard Bitumen and is used in warm climates. Over many years, the correlation between the laboratory properties of road Bitumens and their performance on the road has been investigated. With an increase in traffic volume, it becomes crucial to estimate the asphalt’s long-term behavior and efficiency.


These are the specifications for Bitumen 60/70:

1-Penetration degree of Bitumen 60/70:

Its degree of penetration is determined in the laboratory to evaluate its hardness. In this procedure, a 100-gram needle is inserted in 5 seconds at 25 degrees Celsius, and the depth of penetration is measured to the nearest tenth of a millimeter. The lower the penetration rate, the more robust the Bitumen.

2-Flash point of Bitumen 60/70:

The temperature at which it ignites the produced gases by reaching this temperature is known as the ignition degree, and the maximum quantity that can be heated is restricted by its ignition temperature.

3-Viscosity of Bitumen 60/70:

The more solid its properties, the less fluid it is. Notably, the conductivity of this material decreases at increasing temperatures, and this attribute is evaluated in the laboratory using the Sea bolt Fiorel gadget.

4-Ductility of Bitumen 60/70:

Its malleability is defined as the increase in length in the laboratory when it is stretched with a cross-sectional area of 1 cm2 at a speed of 5 cm/min prior to breaking.

5-Weight loss of Bitumen 60/70:

Weight loss in Bitumen is due to the evaporation of petroleum chemicals and oils contained within it. This quality is also one of its major qualities, allowing it to be measured in the oven at 163 degrees Celsius for five hours at this temperature.

The different compounds of Bitumen 60/70 are not well understood at this time, but the majority of these compounds, which are separated from Bitumen by different solvents, consist of asphaltene-resin materials and heavy oils, which are sometimes accompanied by a small amount of minerals and placed adjacent to one another in an oily colloidal environment. are Bitumen’s flexibility and adhesion being dependent on the resin; nevertheless, the more the asphaltene content, the harder the Bitumen is, whilst the addition of Bitumen oil softens it. By heating Bitumen, oily substances transform into resin, resins transform into asphaltene, and excessive heat transforms Bitumen into coal and water vapor.


Asphaltene is a brittle, insoluble, black to brown solid that is insoluble in standard heptane. Besides carbon and hydrogen, it also contains nitrogen, sulfur, and oxygen. Asphaltene is often regarded as a highly polar material that comprises complex aromatic compounds with a very high molecular weight. It has no definite melting temperature, and when heated, it first expands, then decomposes, and eventually leaves behind a great deal of carbonaceous material. Asphaltene makes up between 5 and 25 percent of Bitumen. The greater the asphaltene content in Bitumen, the harder and less permeable the Bitumen will be, as well as having a higher softening point and viscosity. This substance’s molecular weight ranges from 600 to 300,000 depending on the separation technique used.


Maltenes are soluble in mild solvents, such as heptane. Bitumen’s maltenes are a combination of resins and oils with a molecular weight between 250 and 1300 g/mol.


Resins may be dissolved in heptane. The majority of these compounds, such as asphaltene, are composed of carbon and hydrogen, with traces of oxygen, sulfur, and nitrogen. This substance is dark brown, solid and semi-solid, and highly polar. Resins are unique in that they are very sticky. Resins are anticoagulants for asphaltene, and the ratio of resin to asphaltene may be such that it imparts a sol or gel condition to the Bitumen.


Aromatics are cyclic compounds with the lowest molecular weight and aromatic or naphthenic side chains; they are regarded as very effective asphaltene anticoagulants. This component comprises between 40 and 60 percent of the total Bitumen and is a dark brown, viscous liquid with an average molecular weight ranging from 300 to 2000. Aromatics feature nonpolar carbon chains with a preference for saturated rings and high solubility for heavy hydrocarbons.

5-Saturated compounds:

Saturated compounds consist of aliphatic hydrocarbons with straight and branched chains, alkyl naphthene, and certain alkyl aromatics. Frequently, these compounds take the form of viscous, non-polar, colorless oils. Their average molecular weight is identical to that of aromatic compounds, and their contents consist of saturated waxy and non-waxy substances. This component comprises between 5 and 20% of Bitumen.

In general, asphaltenes constitute the structural skeleton of Bitumens, resins influence the stickiness and flexibility of Bitumen, and oils influence the Bitumen’s psychological problem. Fundamentally, Bitumen’s physical properties are determined by the chemical structure, amount, and quality of hydrocarbons.

Frequently Asked Questions About BITUMEN 60/70

The importance of Bitumen 60/70 penetration testing in determining the behavior of Bitumen at various temperatures. Bitumen 60/70's sensitivity to temperature fluctuations is an essential quality, and the penetration index is utilized to attain and assess this characteristic.

When heating is added, the transition from solid to liquid form of Bitumen 60/70 does not occur abruptly but rather gradually. So, for instance, Bitumens that have the same degree of penetration at 25 °C may have different hardness at higher temperatures, and it is therefore vital to establish their degree of penetration.


Bitumen 60/70 is the most common kind of bitumen used in asphalt for paving roads. One of the most popular grades of bitumen in the world is bitumen penetration grade 60/70, which is its full name. Bitumen 60/70, commonly known as paving grade bitumen, is a versatile asphalt that can be used for a wide variety of purposes. This grade of bitumen can be used to build roads in a broad temperature range (-22 to +76).


The number used with various Bitumens, such as Bitumen 80/100, Bitumen 50/70, Bitumen 60/70, etc., specifies the range of penetration of the test needle in its test. Bitumen 60/70 must have a direct correlation between its viscosity and its degree of penetration, such that as the hardness rises, the softening point increases and the degree of penetration reduces. The test to determine the degree of penetration of Bitumen is performed to assess their relative hardness and is one of the most regularly used tests pertaining to Bitumen; identifying varieties of Bitumen by their degree of penetration is also a common practice.

Due to Bitumen 60/70's viscoelastic nature, its behavior is dependent on variations in the gravitational acceleration and the amount of loading per unit of time. Bitumen 60/70 behaves like a viscous liquid in hot conditions, exhibiting persistent deformation and fewer reversible grooves. It is manufactured, and in cold weather, Bitumen 60/70 behaves as an elastic solid material, changing its shape during the passage of vehicles and returning to its former form after loading, however it may behave brittlely and shatter during loading. This problem does not reflect the behavior of Bitumen 60/70 at temperatures other than 25 degrees Fahrenheit, which is the standard testing temperature.

Bitumen 60/70 or bituminous material is poured into the sample container such that, after cooling, the surface of the bituminous material is flush with the container's rim. After putting the sample into the container, allow it to cool for 1 to 1.5 hours at room temperature before placing it in a water bath at 25 degrees Celsius for 1 hour. After this period, the sample and the water container holding the sample are placed underneath the penetration measurement apparatus, and the following penetration test is conducted:

Place the container holding the sample under the measuring device and allow the needle's tip to contact the sample's surface. Press the button to release the needle, and it will remain in the sample for 5 seconds. At least three needles are utilized to execute the penetration test in the shape of a hypothetical triangle (so that the distance between the tip of each needle and the internal wall is 1 cm). The average penetration of three needles is given as the test result.


This test is intended to measure the degree of penetration of Bitumen 60/70 and other bituminous materials in solid and semi-solid states. This test is used to determine the consistency, with more penetration indicating a lower consistency and lesser penetration indicating a higher consistency.

Conditions for carrying out a pen test:

This test's regular needle length is 50 mm, whereas extended needles measure 60 mm.

Following are the requirements for the sample container:

For penetrations less than 200, the container should have a 55 mm diameter and a 35 mm internal height.

For a degree of penetration between 250 and 350, the container should have a diameter between 55 and 75 mm and an interior height between 45 and 70 mm.

For a degree of penetration between 350 and 500, the container should have a 55 mm diameter and a 70 mm internal height.

The water bath for this test must be able to maintain the water temperature within one tenth of a degree Celsius of the test temperature.

The combination of needle and holder weighs 100 grams, and the duration of the needle's penetration into the sample is 5 seconds.


Establishing the viscosity of Bitumen 60/70 is crucial to determining its properties; the greater the viscosity, the more solid the Bitumen. Obviously, the lesser the rigidity, the greater the temperature. This evaluation is determined using either a C-bolt Fiorel device or a kinematic technique.

The viscosity test only offers information on the viscous behavior of Bitumen 60/70 within a certain temperature range; it does not reveal the viscous behavior of Bitumen 60/70 at temperatures above and below this range.


The following are the differences between 60/70 bitumen and other grades:
1- The penetration value of the needle in the penetration test of this bitumen is between 60 and 70 mm
2- It is suitable for almost most climates
3- It is neither too soft nor too hard
4- It has a reasonable price
5- It has an easier production method than other types of bitumen


The [email protected]˚C of Bitumen 60/70 is 1010-1060 Kg/m3 Test Method ASTM D7 or D3289


Penetration grade Bitumen 60/70 is separated into road construction Bitumen or dilute Bitumen and construction Bitumen (roof insulation) or hard Bitumen. The majority of manufactured Bitumen is utilized for road building, while a portion is used for insulation.


The primary distinction between Bitumen 60/70 and Bitumen 80/100 is their respective penetrating capabilities. To choose between Bitumen 60/70 and 80/100 Bitumen, it is necessary to remember that 80/100 Bitumen has a milder penetration than Bitumen 60/70. As a result, Bitumen 80/100 is mostly used in cold climates.


The Oxford English Dictionary means Bitumen 60/70 as "a tarlike combination of hydrocarbons generated naturally or by distillation from petroleum and used for road covering and roofing" (Oxford University Press, 1996).

It is usually thought that the name Bitumen originated in Sanskrit, the ancient and holy language of the Hindus in India, where jatu means "pitch" and jatu-krit means "pitch-making." These phrases referred to the pitch that some resinous trees generate. Some suggest the Latin equivalent was originally gwitu-men ('pertaining to pitch'), while others think it was pixtu-men ('bubbling pitch'), which was then abbreviated to Bitumen before entering the English language through French. The Bible has a number of allusions to Bitumen, but the wording may be ambiguous. In Genesis, Noah's ark is described as being "pitched inside and outside with pitch," while Moses' youthful voyage takes place in "a bulrush ark daubed with slime and pitch." Even more confusing are the accounts of the Tower of Babel's construction. The Authorized Version of the Bible states, "they had brick for stone and slime for mortar," whereas the New International Version states, "they used bricks instead of stone and tar instead of mortar," Moffat's 1935 translation states, "they had bricks for stone and asphalt for mortar," and the New English Bible states, "they used bricks for stone and Bitumen for mortar." Ancient applications of natural Bitumens or pitch persisted in populated regions of the globe where deposits were abundant. However, use seems to have developed very little elsewhere. In many nations, none of the current primary applications of Bitumen were introduced until the late nineteenth century. However, there seems to have been a greater awareness of natural Bitumen sources like as the lake asphalt in Trinidad. In the middle of the nineteenth century, attempts were made to use rock asphalt from European deposits for road surfacing. This was followed by the gradual development of the use of natural products for this purpose, as well as the introduction of coal tar and refined Bitumen produced from crude oil.


The Bitumen 60/70 uses for:

  • The majority of Bitumen 60/70 uses are in the road building and asphalt industries.
  • Water- and vapor-resistant insulation of all building surfaces, including floors, ceilings, and interior and exterior walls.
  • Insulation of wet building spaces such as the bathroom, kitchen, etc.
  • Restoration of worn-out waterproofing materials.
  • Protection and insulation of concrete foundations.
  • A coating that protects all metal surfaces from oxidation and corrosion.
  • Expansion joint filler for concrete buildings.
  • The sealing and maintenance of asphalt roads and highways.


The quality of 60/70 Bitumen is determined by its properties and specifications. In addition to the penetration test, a variety of other tests are performed to establish the characteristics of 60/70 Bitumen, including viscosity, softening point, ductility, weight loss, and flash point. Important examples are the softening point and the flash point. According to the ASTM D36 method, Bitumen 60/70 has a softening point between 49 and 56 °C and a flash point between 230 and 250 °C.


The majority of Bitumen used in asphalt for road building is grade 60/70 Bitumen. In road construction projects throughout the globe, this grade of Bitumen is combined with aggregates to produce asphalt and pave roads. Bitumen 60/70 is quite popular in India and Southeast African nations because to its acceptable quality and reasonable price. Bitumen 60/70 is known as a cost-effective option that cuts expenses without compromising quality by enhancing the performance of the finished asphalt and repairing cracks during maintenance.

Bitumen 60/70 is also used in the manufacturing of polymer-modified Bitumen. In the creation of PMBs, specific polymers are added to Bitumen 60/70 in order to increase its properties, such as elasticity, brittleness, and softening, which are crucial for the improved performance of asphalt mixtures.


  • Water and moisture impervious.
  • Electrical insulation.
  • Durability.
  • Moderate resistance to acids, bases, and salts.
  • adherence to other substances.

The building sector makes extensive use of Bitumen varieties because to their aforementioned qualities. One of these features is the propensity to adhere to hard surfaces and the absence of moisture and water penetration. This stickiness will depend on the object's surface and the condition of the Bitumen. The bituminous substance must have the capacity to adhere to the surface of the item in order to establish adhesion. This adherence is weakened by the presence of moisture on the body's surface.
