Description: Technical note
Background: Bitumen or asphaltic bitumen is produced by refining crude petroleum oil. It is a durable cement with adhesive and waterproofing properties. It is also an elasto-plastic substance which imparts controllable flexibility to mixtures of mineral aggregate with which it is usually combined. Asphaltic bitumen is chemically inert; therefore, it is environmentally inoffensive.
