COMPOUNDING OF OXIDIZED AND NONOXIDIZED PRODUCTS OF PETROLEUM PROCESSING - A PROMISING METHOD OF IMPROVING THE PROPERTIES OF ROAD BITUMENS
The need for constantly increasing the quality of road bitumen binders is substantiated. It is shown that the use of the principle of compounding both in preparing initial materials for the production of road bitumens and in obtaining commercial bitumens by mixing oxide products with high-boiling components permits increasing the quality of bitumen binders as a result of directed regulation of their chemical composition. It is established that a mixture of oxidized bitumen and high-boiling products of petroleum processing can be an optimal petroleum base for obtaining high-quality bitumen polymer compounds.
