Ooms Performance Grade PMB

Performance Grade Ooms PMB

Polymer Modified Bitumen, exceeding specification of IRC:SP:53 and IS:15462 for long life Highways, Expressways, Airports and Industrial pavements.

  • #Surfacing (wearing and binder course) for roads with high traffic intensity/heavy axle loads
  • #Busy intersections, round abouts, and bridge decks
  • #Airports/seaports/industrial parking
  • #Stress absorbing membrane interlayer (SAMI) for checking reflection cracks
  • #Cracks filling and sealants
  • # Offers improved pavement performance without any compromise.
  • # Increased fatigue resistance of bituminous mixes
  • # Better adhesion to reduce risk of stripping by water
  • # Higher degree of flexibility at low temperature
  • # Prevention of cracking, raveling, deformation & creep failure
  • # Suitable for all climatic regions
  • # Environment friendly products
  • # Have long storage and service life
  • # Most effective as they offer better design options

Ooms PMB is produced in a state of the art central plant equipped with high shear machine as per the guidelines laid down by IRC:SP:53 and Indian standards IS 15462 specification for Polymer & Crumb Rubber Modified Bitumen. Ooms PMB has been tested by premium institutes of the country like Central Road Research Institute New Delhi, Indian Institute of Petroleum Dehradun & Indian Institute of Technology Madras as per IRC:SP:53 and IS 15462 and has been found to fully meet the guidelines and specification.

Asphalt mixes based on performance grade Ooms PMB binders are characterized by:

  • # Low temperature susceptibility
  • # High elastic recovery
  • # High resistance to fatigue
  • # High flexibility
  • # High resistance to permanent deformation
  • # Excellent adhesion
  • # Ductile behavior and resistance to creep
  • # High resistance to low temperature cracking

These specific properties of performance grade Ooms PMB asphalt pavement provide excellent resistance to raveling, fatigue, permanents deformation, surface cracks and reflective cracking also under extreme climatic conditions.
