what is Bitumen
Bitumen is an oil based substance. It is a semi-solid hydrocarbon product produced by removing the lighter fractions (such as liquid petroleum gas, petrol and diesel) from heavy crude oil during the refining process.

Types of Bitumen
The bitumen types regarding its generation source bitumen can be classified into three categories:
natural, petroleum asphalts, coal tar pitches.

Natural Bitumen
natural asphalt or Natural bitumen is similar to hard petroleum asphalt and is often called a natural asphalt, asphaltite, uintaite, or asphaltum.

Application of Gilsonite

  • Asphalt and Road Construction
  • Gilsonite in Oil well Drilling Fluid Additives and Cement
  • Printing Ink Industry
  • Paint industry
  • Foundry Industry

Asphalt and Road Construction:

Gilsonite is used as a performance-enhancing agent for asphalt mixes. Gilsonite can partially or totally replace, or complement, the use of SBS polymers in modified asphalts at a fraction of the cost. Gilsonite-modified asphalts have higher stability, reduced deformation, reduced temperature susceptibility and increased resistance to water stripping than non-modified asphalts. Gilsonite is also used to make both solvent-based and emulsion pavement sealers with superior appearance and weathering properties.
Gilsonite micronized powder is used in the production of blue bitumen emulsion. The world consumption of bitumen emulsion has increased rapidly. Bitumen emulsion is known as green and environmentally friendly bitumen.

Gilsonite in Oil well Drilling Fluid Additives and Cement:

Gilsonite is used in drilling mud fluids and oil well cementing.
Gilsonite, "Natural asphalt, Natural Bitumen" in a range of softening points and particle sizes, is a standard ingredient in oil-based drilling muds used in shales and other difficult geological formations. The addition of specially-treated Gilsonite to water-based drilling fluids helps minimize hole washout by stabilizing troublesome shales, and seals off highly permeable sands while reducing torque and drag.
The addition of Gilsonite to oil well cements reduces slurry weight without loss of compressive strength and acts as an effective bridging and plugging agent to seal fractures in weak formations while cementing. also Gilsonite,"Natural asphalt, Natural Bitumen" use in Mud drilling according to FLC " Filtrate Loss Control " or " Fluid Loss Control " in oil base mud.

Printing Ink Industry:

Gilsonite Resin is widely used as the primary carbon black wetting agent for black news inks.
Gilsonite, "Natural asphalt, Natural Bitumen" Resin competes advantageously with petroleum-based hydrocarbon resins, phenolic resins and metal resinates, all of which it can complement or replace to various degrees. Various concentrations of our Gilsonite Resin are used to manufacture law-rub-off news inks with superior gloss and tack properties. Special grades of Gilsonite called Selects are also standard ingredients in black ink formulations and are used as additives in asphaltic paints and varnishes. For Paint , If added to asphaltic paints and varnishes, Gilsonite's unique qualities improve their roughness, gloss and chemical and weather resistance.Printing Inks, Gilsonite, "Natural asphalt, Natural Bitumen" is an important cost-effective ingredients in the manufacture of high quality vehicles for dark printing inks.

Paint industry:

Gilsonite combines with many other chemicals and materials that take advantage of its unique physical and chemical properties.

Foundry Industry:

Physical Sand properties with Gilsonite resin are equal or superior to sea coal at significantly lower additive levels.
Gilsonite improves sand density, water requirements and strength (green, dry, baked, and hot). Gas evolution curves show that Gilsonite volatilizes more rapidly than sea coal. Gilsonite has the same total volatiles as sea coal at one-third the additive level.

What’s the difference between Bitumen and Asphalt?
Should I use Bitumen or Asphalt?
Bitumen is actually the liquid binder that holds asphalt together. The term bitumen is often mistakenly used to describe asphalt.
A bitumen-sealed road has a layer of bitumen sprayed and then covered with an aggregate. This is then repeated to give a two-coat seal.
Asphalt is produced in a plant that heats, dries and mixes aggregate, bitumen and sand into a composite mix.
It is then applied through a paving machine on site as a solid material at a nominated or required thickness, relative to the end use.
Asphalt results in a smoother and more durable surface than a bitumen-sealed road.
