NATURAL ASPHALT, mined in Iran, is a natural hydrocarbon of the Asphalitites class, which are natural asphalt like substances.
Its natural form is shiny black solid substance. It’s highly brittle, thus for industrial application it is necessary to mill it and make it into a powdered form so that it can be easily mixed with bitumen and other additives as required. There is no any other chemical addition or any other substance added, and this is natural asphalt only. Its properties are similar to the properties of Gilsonite of the American Gilsonite Company (AGC).
It can be used for many purposes such as bitumen modification for road surfacing, making battery, boxes and rubber design.
