Product Details


VG-40 bitumen is used in areas in which high pressure comes from heavy traffic loads, such as intersections, near toll booths, and truck parking lots. Due to the high viscosity of this bitumen, it is more appropriate for improving resistance to shoving and other problems associated with high temperatures and heavy traffic load. Industries use VG-40 instead of the 40/50 penetration grade bitumen.

bitumen vg 40


It is suitable for a temperature above 40◦C

It is a preferred type of bitumen when heavy traffic load is expected

Due to its higher viscosity, this grade of bitumen efficiently improves pavement resistance problems associated with higher temperatures and heavy traffic loads

The bitumen temperature of VG-40 ranges between 160⁰C-170⁰C and the laying temp is 150⁰C


It works in areas with high traffic loads

Well suited for road construction in hot weather

In production of stiffer Bitumen mixes

With its accuracy, predictability, and durability, VG-40 bitumen is the best choice for road projects in India

It is used for traffic level greater than 20 million Standard Axle (MSA)
