Although the manufactured bitumen are of high quality today But the basics of their use are, as in the past, essentially like sealing, adhesion and protective coatings Today, more than 250 different applications for bitumen in agriculture, construction, industry, road construction and many more are considered. In this section, we use bitumen for different uses.
In this section, we explain bitumen different uses.
The major bitumen produced that is producing in the world and known as bitumen is used in road construction. In road construction, bitumen is used as a bonding agent for asphalt, and the use of bitumen in the construction industry is ranked second as insulation.
Estimates show that the annual amount of Egyptian bitumen in the world is about 102 million tons. Of this, about 85 percent of the bitumen is used in the road construction industry, and the 60/70 bitumen is most used. More than 10% of the bitumen produced in the world is used in the building industry and as insulation. And seagulls are used as sealing, insulating, pipe coating, etc.
Below are the uses of bitumen examined
