Storage & Handling

The storage of bituminous binders for prolonged periods at elevated temperatures should be avoided as quality may be adversely affected. Bituminous binders should be stored at the lowest temperature that enables practical use. 

Maximum Storage Temperature Recommendations

  • Storage for up to 7 days - 160°C - 175°C
  • Storage for up to 14 days - 145°C - 155°C
  • Minimum pumping temperature - 150°C
  • Temperature for spraying - 180°C - 190°C
