The UVB-2 bitumen modification plant is designed for modification of bitumen by adding polymers, adhesion additives and plasticizers into viscous road construction bitumen. Modified bitumen is used in the production of asphalt/concrete top layer, cement protection layers and crack sealants.

The use of modified bitumen instead of regular bitumen in asphalt concrete mixes allows to extend temperature range of asphalt concrete layer operability with seasonal temperature fluctuations, ensures load deformation resistance (cracking and rutting) and increases service life of automobile roads.

The unit is designed for implementation of virtually any bitumen modification process using a wide range of polymer modifiers (polymers, waxes etc).

The compatibility of bitumen and polymers is essential to obtain a high-quality final product. The polymer is able to absorb oil components of the binder, preserving its structure. Due to the modification process, bitumen is turned into an elastomer that with improved elasticity.

Modern petrochemical industry professionals attempt to maximize the yield of light oil products and extract most of the paraffin-naphthenic fractions from bitumen. This reduces its flexibility at low temperatures and the softening point at high temperatures. Most modern bitumen will lose elasticity at approximately twenty degrees (20oC) and begin to soften at between +45oC to 48oС. The use of non-modified bitumen in both road construction, which requires a binder with a temperature range from -40oC to +70oC, and for roofing materials, which are often subjected to temperatures up to 90oC, is inefficient. Fortunately, there are ways to change and improve the properties of bitumen by mixing it with various additives. This is best achieved in special bitumen modification units such as the GlobeCore UVB bitumen modification system.
