How to Make Sure a Bitumen is VG40, not 40/50?
Although VG 40 bitumen and penetration grade bitumen 40/50 look exactly the same, their physical properties, viscosity range, and performance is completely different. VG 40 bitumen has been optimized for road construction at higher temperatures. Since the viscose properties of this bitumen are measured at three various temperatures (25, 60, and 135°C), it offers easier handling and maintenance, in comparison to pen grade bitumen 40/50. Here you can find a comprehensive article about the advantages of VG bitumen to pen grades.
To differentiate VG 40 bitumen from penetration grade 40/50, it is necessary to check the results of bitumen tests on your purchased bitumen. Get the test results from Infinity Galaxy and see if the absolute viscosity and penetration value of your bitumen is in range (VG 40’s absolute viscosity should be 3200 poises and penetration value should be between 40 and 60).
It is also important to buy VG 40 bitumen from a trustworthy supplier, who have good relationships with reputable refineries in the Middle East in the production of viscosity grade bitumen. At Infinity Galaxy, we guarantee that our VG 40 bitumen is of the highest standards by testing the properties of bitumen drums before loading (SGS inspection), as well as controlling the test results of bitumen in refineries. As a result, our clients will never buy bitumen 40/50 instead of VG 40 bitumen.
