Cut-back plants


Cut-back is currently used for some spraying applications like priming, tack coat, etc. This is obtained by blending bitumen with a controlled amounts of petroleum distillates (such as kerosene or diesel oil) in order to reduce its viscosity.

Thanks to that:

  • it can be sprayed at lower temperature than the neat bitumen;
  • it can penetrate more effectively into the aggregate base.

To support our customers with an easy and safe solution for the cut-back production, we have designed a plant with an high production rate for instantaneous mixing of bitumen and petroleum derivates.

The cut-back is therefore produced and immediately after loaded into the spraying tank or carrier without the necessity to install any storage tank for it - avoiding the big danger of storing a product with flammable fumes.

The plant can produce cut-backs with petroleum distillates percentages from 5% up to 50%. Production output varies from 15 T/h up to 50 T/h.
