Iran bitumen and global sanction

Bitumen is oil product and since 2015 which sanction from UN lifted from Iran is free to trade but US sanction remain and ahead of UN since financially involved and transaction to Iran is forbidden.So traders handling Iran business outside of country with their own financial and banking facility and change the paperwork to third countries like UAE and Oman and trading billions of dollar. 

Which countries importing bitumen from Iran?








Why still there is a lot of buyer?


There is shortage of bitumen globally and most of refineries move to light crude and they dont have bitumen now.


Quality of Iran bitumen is as per EU and ASTM and acceptable for all road contractor 


Iran bitumen price is lowest in the world 


All grade so fbitumen in volume nad high quality is available in Iran market

  • Bitumen 40/50: This grade of bitumen is commonly used in road construction and has a penetration range of 40 to 50 decimeters. It offers excellent properties for asphalt mixtures, providing durability and resistance to heavy traffic loads.

  • Bitumen 60/70: Bitumen 60/70 is widely used in road paving, as it has a penetration grade of 60 to 70 decimeters. It offers a balance between stiffness and flexibility, making it suitable for various climate conditions.

  • Bitumen 80/100: With a penetration grade of 80 to 100 decimeters, this bitumen grade is commonly utilized in areas with high traffic density. It provides superior resistance to deformation and cracking, ensuring the longevity of the asphalt pavement.

  • Bitumen 100/120: This grade of bitumen is ideal for regions with extreme weather conditions. It offers excellent adhesion properties, making it suitable for airport runways and areas with heavy loads.

  • Bitumen 120/150: Bitumen 120/150 is commonly used in industrial applications such as roofing and waterproofing. Its high penetration range makes it effective in providing water resistance.

  • Polymer-Modified Bitumen (PMB): This grade involves the modification of bitumen with polymer additives to enhance its properties. PMB is used in high-stress applications, such as heavy-duty roads and highways, offering improved resistance to fatigue and cracking.

  • Emulsion Bitumen: Emulsion bitumen SS1 is a mixture of bitumen and water, stabilized with an emulsifying agent. It is commonly used in surface treatments, tack coats, and cold mix applications.

  • Oxidized Bitumen: Oxidized bitumen 115/15 is produced by blowing air through heated bitumen to increase its hardness and viscosity. It is used in roofing and waterproofing applications.

  • Cutback Bitumen: Cutback bitumen MC70 is bitumen dissolved in a volatile solvent. It is used for priming, surface dressing, and maintenance work.

  • Bitumen Viscosity Grade (VG): The viscosity grading system categorizes bitumen based on its viscosity at 60°C. The commonly used viscosity grades in Iran include VG-10, VG-20, VG-30, VG-40, VG-50, and VG-60.
