AC 5

Bitumen AC 5

 

Bitumen AC 5 is a Viscosity Grade Bitumen. It is a designed bituminous asphalt which is mostly used in cold climates because the viscosity is low.

This asphalt is generally used in Alaska, and it is usually unmodified.

Storage temperatures for AC-5 is preferred to be 135°C to 163°C (275°F to 325°F). Unnecessarily high temperatures result in increased hardening and heating costs.
