CUTBACK ASPHALT MEDIUM CURING GRADES
The specification for Medium Curing (MC) Cutback Asphalts applies to liquid asphaltic materials in the form of an asphalt cement combined with a petroleum solvent of a kerosene type. MC cutback asphalts are specified by the following grades: MC-30, MC70, MC-250, MC-800, MC-3000. 1.2 Composition/Characteristics Medium Curing Cutback Asphalt shall consist of an asphalt cement which has been liquified by blending with a kerosene type of petroleum solvent. 1.3 Application/Use The MC Cutback Asphalt described herein shall be suitable for use as outlined in Table 1 - Principal Uses of Asphalt Materials of the National Standard of Canada CAN/CGSB-16.6-M89, PRINCIPAL USES AND TERMINOLOGY FOR ASPHALT MATERIALS FOR ROAD PURPOSES. 1.4 Method of Production The MC Cutback Asphalt is a mixture of an asphalt cement, with a kerosene type of solvent. If the supplier elects to use non traditional material components in the MC Cutback Asphalt the Province must be advised in writing before any material is shipped to Department destinations. 1.5 Definitions Asphalt Cement: A dark brown to black solid or semi-solid cementitious material which gradually liquifies when heated. One type of bitumen that is obtained as residue in refining crude oil.
