Modification of bitumen by polymers


The modification of bitumen by plastomeric and/or elastomeric polymers makes it possible to improve their mechanical characteristics. In the laboratory, this requires bringing the bitumen to the exact temperature of incorporation of the polymer and having suitable dispersion tools.

VIALAB offers a device composed of:

  • a 3L bitumen Heater allowing the temperature regulation of the bitumen during the modification
  • a high-speed disperser (10000 rpm)
  • Coarse, medium and/or fine dispersion tools with a high shear rate

Used together, these device make it possible to master the bitumen modification in the laboratory.
