Blown bitumen grades or Oxidized Bitumen (also called hard bitumen) are produced by passing air through the Petroleum Bitumen grades using additives and materials such as Gilsonite. During this process bitumen acquires rubbery properties higher than its original formula and they are simply harder bitumen. Oxidized Bitumen comes in several grades with different penetration and softening points according to the application, such as Oxidized Bitumen 115/15 bitumen widely used in African countries.

The product is utilized under carriage sealant in the automotive industry, electric cable joint protection, joint filling compound, sealant compound and many others.
