The bitumen testing instruments are used for ensuring the quality of bitumen to be used in road construction. Certified quality bitumen can withstand the flexural & compressive stress caused by regular traffic. Simply put, the bitumen test is a necessity in the road construction sector for ensuring the bitumen used is of high quality that guarantees the durability of roads and pavements.
Durability of roads and pavements aids people to carry on with their daily lives without any trouble or hassle which may arise due to constant repair work. Furthermore, eliminating the need for constant repair and construction of roads also prevents wastage of money.
