Nano-composites are used for improving the properties of bitumen. For example, adding nano clay to bitumen trebles the useful life of asphalt. Clay and its Nano powder have different properties and increase the lifespan of asphalt. Producing stable bitumen by nanotechnology is the other way of improving properties. Polymer modified bitumen is being used for paving highways and building tarmacs.
Polymer modified bitumen could be used in different climate conditions and traffic load because of its unique properties. The majority of this kind of bitumen are not stable enough for storage and this is the main problem of using this type of bitumen. By adding nanoparticles like nano-silis, nanotube carbon and nano clay to polymers, stable polymer modified bitumen has been produced. This category of bitumen is stable enough for storage. KB Oil's R&D Unit is determined to benefit from modern technologies to improve the stability of its bitumen production.
