Bitumen is a blend of hydrocarbons used for surfacing of roads and for a variety of industrial uses. It is produced in refineries from special qualities of crude oil. Globally 90% of all bitumen is used in road construction and 10% for industrial purposes.
In road construction bitumen is used as a surface coating. A surface coating is a mixture of bitumen (around 5 %) and crushed aggregates, used in road construction and maintenance, in which the bitumen ensures the binding between the different aggregates.
