Properties of Modified Bitumen Obtained from Natural Bitumen by Adding Pyrolysis Fuel Oil

H. Kazemi Esfeh, B. Ghanavati, and T. GhaleGolabi

Abstract—There are large mines of natural bitumen around the world and low price make it a good opportunity for increasing of industrial usage of this material. This paper studies the possibility of producing new material in oxide bitumen properties range from combination of natural bitumen and pyrolysis fuel oil. To achieve this goal first used some experiments to determine the physical properties of raw materials and then after combining more natural bitumen and pyrolysis fuel oil in different samples some test including penetration, softening point and ductility test have been done and results have been compare to ASTM and BS standard. Ultimately seen this combination can produce bitumen with R115/15 and R95/25 grade.
