Modified Bitumen (MBM) is an abbreviation of Bituminous Methylene Chloride, also known as Becton-Xylene, which is a material used in the making of waterproofing membranes. These membranes are commonly used in industries such as oil refining and chemical companies. The membrane is also used for making anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-spiral paints. During the 1970s, companies began using the M BM as a substitute for Teflon-coated pipelines.
The material is generally heated to a temperature of around 650 degrees Celsius, at which point it is usually polished or brushed to produce a smooth, glossy surface. The M BM membrane is then painted with a paint that has a cross-sectional area of around 100 square meters and is resistant to corrosion. It is widely used as a binder for concrete, as its high resistance to chemical attack makes it the ideal material for binder and crack sealant. Also, it is used for plastic fabrication. Modifications to the M BM material can be made by adding additives such as resins, wherein the properties of the binder or sealant are improved.
The manufacturing process of SBS Modified Bitumen is done through injection molding. The raw materials are mixed together and then cooked in an autoclave. The resulting product is then drawn into molds, where the coating is applied and cooled in the autoclave. The cool material is then passed through a series of heat cycles, from where the rough resin is obtained. The rough resin is then manually trimmed to the desired thickness before being struck off with a hard rubber mallet, leaving a finished product that is guaranteed to resist moisture, chemicals, and corrosion for decades. In addition to its many industrial applications, SBS Modified Bitumen is also used in residential waterproofing projects such as bathroom tiles, decking, basement walls, and roofs, as well as numerous other residential and commercial applications.
