Bitumen vg -40

Bitumen is a dark-colored thermoplastic material and its solidness is subject to temperature. It derived from oil, which is referred to as petroleum bitumen. Currently, most of the roads globally are paved with bitumen. Today the world’s demand for bitumen accounts for more than 100 million tons per year which is approximately 700 million barrels of bitumen consumed annually. Petroleum bitumen is typically referred to as bitumen or asphalt. In Europe for instance, bitumen means the liquid binder. In North America, on the other hand, the liquid binder is referred to as asphalt cement.
