History of oxidized bitumen company

Since it commenced operations in 2003, the principal activity at the basekim oxidized bitumen company the manufacture of air blown asphalt. The location was chosen for its isolation from population centers and its access to rail and water transportation. Nearby our mine and factory facility were then sparsely settled agricultural areas. Providing residences for workers at the basekim plant became a practical necessity.
Basekim oxidized bitumen producer, who made up the largest part of workforce in the current year, In the late 2005, a big capacity of basekim bitumen factory constructed as well as 12 cottages for workers and their families. The company grew and starts to export 100000MT annually.

Throughout the world, more than 10 types of bitumen that is produced depend on the type of weather conditions one of them is Oxidised Bitumen.
Oxidised bitumen grades are suitable for sealing saw cuts and joints where there is expected to be the minimum amount of moving in the joint. Their wide temperature range prevents bleeding in high temperature applications. Oxidized bitumen can also be used in industrial applications like roofing, flooring, mastics, pipe coatings, electrical applications.

Oxidized bitumen 150/5, 115/15, 105/35, 95/25, 90/40, 90/10, 90/15, 85/25, 85/40, 85/25, 75/25 which is manufactured at Basekim factory and they are grade of oxidizing bitumen by hot air and has high softening point and low penetration.
The oxidized bitumen could be packed in plastic bag also craft bag also in drum and possible to deliver hot in bulk tanker.

When the oxidation of bitumen occurs in the presence of catalytic agents , the process is called catalytic oxidation . By the action of catalysts the reaction rate is changed, allowing the oxidation process is faster and more homogeneous throughout the bulk form , in addition to allowing greater process control and final product with different penetration like 115/15 which is 115 is softening point and 15 is penetration.

Depending on the purpose for which it is the oxidized asphalts may also receive different types of polymer additives, in order to increase its plasticity, stickiness, resistance to weathering and oxidation.
