The family BETUPEN is composed of industrialized products that present excellent performance. This family is composed by types J, BN, N, S, Plus and they are specially produced to present quality and consistency suitable for use in the construction and maintenance of asphalt pavements, because in addition to its agglutinating and waterproofing properties, characteristics of CAP, it has characteristics of flexibility, durability and high resistance to the action of most acids, salts and alkalis, provided by the insertion of other additives that, under special process conditions, present excellent performance characteristics.
The BETUPEN is used in hot services, such as: asphalt concrete, pre-mixed, sand-asphalt and surface treatment. BETUPEN must not be heated above 177 ° C, under the risk of oxidation and thermal cracking of the binder.
The heating must be carried out until the appropriate consistency is obtained for its application, with the ideal temperature of use obtained by the viscosity / temperature ratio. It should not be applied on rainy days, on wet surfaces and at ambient temperatures below 10 ° C.
