Polymers are substances containing a large number of smaller, identical molecules (called monomers) linked together. These substances often form into a chain-like structure. Polymers have extremely high molecular weights and the chains may differ from one another in their molecular weights.
Today, the polymer industry has grown to be larger than the aluminum, copper and steel industries combined.
Polymers already have a wide range of applications that far exceeds that of any other class of material available. Current applications extend from adhesives, coatings, foams, and packaging materials to textile and industrial fibers, composites, electronic devices, biomedical devices, optical devices, and precursors for many newly developed high-tech ceramics.

Bitumen is a mixture of Organic Liquids that are highly Viscous, Black, Sticky, Entirely Soluble in Carbon Disulfide, and composed primarily of highly condensed Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons.

Naturally occurring or crude bitumen is a sticky, tar-like form of petroleum which is so thick and heavy that it must be heated or diluted before it will flow. At room temperature, it is much like cold molasses. Refined Bitumen is the residual (bottom) fraction obtained by fractional distillation of crude oil. It is the heaviest fraction and the one with the highest boiling point, boiling at 525 °C (977 °F).

In British English, the word ‘Asphalt’ refers to a mixture of mineral aggregate and bitumen (or tarmac in common parlance). The word ‘Tar’ refers to the black viscous material obtained from the destructive distillation of coal and is chemically distinct from bitumen.

what is bitumen?

 In American English, Bitumen is referred to as ‘Asphalt’ or ‘Asphalt cement’ in engineering jargon. In Australian English, Bitumen is sometimes used as the generic term for road surfaces. In Canadian English, the word bitumen is used to refer to the vast Canadian deposits of extremely heavy crude oil, while asphalt is used for the oil refinery product used to pave roads and manufacture roof shingles. Diluted Bitumen (diluted with Naphtha to make it flow in pipelines) is known as dilbit in the Canadian Petroleum industry, while bitumen upgraded to synthetic crude oil is known as syn crude and syn crude blended with bitumen as syn bit. Most bitumen contain sulfur and several heavy metals such as Nickel, Vanadium, Lead, Chromium, Mercury and also Arsenic, Selenium, and other Toxic Elements. Bitumen can provide good preservation of plants and animal fossils.

  • DRUMS: Drummed Bitumen has been the most common type of packaging. Qualities of the drums have been improving during these years. We always use New Steel Drums for packing. Drums vary in terms of net weight capacity, height and body thickness. The most common and standard drums have the body thickness of 0.6 mm. Height of the drums are 98 CMS for standard drums and 86 CM for small drums (180 KG and 200 KG  drums), however we have the required tools to adjust the height of the drums, based on the customer’s choice
  • BULK : Our company is involved in the export of high quality road bitumen in bulk via bulk vessels to neighboring countries. After production, Bulk bitumen is initially stored in storage tanks near sea port and loaded onto Bulk bitumen vessels.A small vessel with the capacity 3,000 metric tons can be loaded within 1- 2 days and delivered to near ports  within 7 to 14 days. Such small bulk bitumen ships of this capacity are designed for short distance travel. For longer distances the availability of bulk bitumen vessels must be asserted and they must be larger in size to withstand the voyage and also make it cost effective to use this mean as a transportation method. Bulk bitumen’s price is an average of 40.00 USD per metric tons less than that of  drummed bitumen.  The shipping cost of bulk bitumen is generally higher than bitumen shipped in containers.  For example, the cost of containers to one port may cost 10.00 USD/MT while shipping the goods via a bulk vessel may cost well over 50.00 USD/MT to the same destination.
