VG 10 bitumen is a high quality bitumen, ideal for paving roads at very cold temperatures. With its brilliant performance against repeated freeze-thaw cycles, buying VG10 bitumen is preferred to other grades of bitumen when the weather is very cold.
Bitumen needs to have a viscosity range of 800 poises in cold regions (Below 30°C), which means the bitumen’s stiffness is low enough to offer maximum bonding and adhesive properties with aggregates.
With its low viscosity, VG10 bitumen also performs well when spraying and surface dressing is needed.
In this article you can read more about different types of bitumen that are suitable for road construction and its maintaining.

How to Check the Quality, before buying VG10 Bitumen?
One of the main challenges when buying VG 10 bitumen, is to differentiate it from bitumen penetration 80/100.
Since these two bitumen grades look exactly the same, the only way to recognize them is to test them.
Therefore, it is recommended to ask your supplier for the test results, to make sure that you are not buying bitumen penetration 80/100 instead of VG10 bitumen.
The only thing you need to do is checking the absolute viscosity and penetration value of your bitumen (VG 10’s absolute viscosity should be 800 poises and penetration value should be between 80 and 100).
For a full description of viscosity grade bitumen’s advantages to penetration grade bitumen see this article.
