Asphalt & Viscosity

What is asphalt?

Asphalt, also known as bitumen  is a sticky, black, and highly viscous  liquid or semi-solid form of petroleum. It may be found in natural deposits or may be a refined product, and is classed as a pitch. The word Asphalt is derived from the ancient Greek.

Main use, around 70% of asphalt is in road construction.

To measure the viscosity of the asphalt you should be using HB viscometer for very high viscosity materials.
