VG40
Hincol Bitumen VG40

Hincol Bitumen VG-40 is special formulated bitumen, which is obtained by a technique of physical/chemical modification that alters the chemistry and balance of the bituminous components to a desired optimum. They are formulated to resist both pavement rutting at higher temperatures and thermal shrinkage cracking at lower temperatures. In addition, Hincol bitumen VG-40 better withstand fatigue at normal operating temperatures. Hincol Bitumen VG-40 combines the characteristic advantages of softer grades at low temperatures and of harder grades at high temperatures.

Hincol Bitumen VG-40 can be used in various asphalt mix designs and techniques which result in the manufacture of cohesive asphalt mixes suitable for any type of traffic. Hincol Bitumen VG-40 increases the stability of the asphalt mix at any temperature and enhances long lasting surface characteristics.  Hincol Bitumen VG-40 is suitable for heavy traffic road, airport runway and taxiway, container terminals.
