Cutback Bitumen Grades

Cutback Bitumen is dissolved in a solvent. Typical solvents include Naptha, Gasoline and Kerosene, White Spirit etc. The type of solvent controls the Curing time while the amount determines the Viscosity of the Cutback Asphalt. This is done to reduce the Viscosity of the Bitumen temporarily so it can penetrate pavements more effectively or to allow spraying at temperatures that are too cold for successful sprayed sealing with neat bitumen. The materials used to cutback bitumen will evaporate after application to leave the remaining material similar in hardness to the original bitumen.

Cutback Asphalt Bitumen Classifications

Cutback Bitumen divided into three classifications, Slow-Curing (SC), Rapid-Curing (RC) and Medium-Curing (MC) depending on the solvent used. They are further defined by Grades which indicates the minimum kinematic viscosity (fluidity) of the cutback.
