BNB Crumb Rubber Modified Bitumen

Crumb Rubber Bitumen (CRMB) is a special type of bitumen whose properties are improve by the addition of crumb rubber. Crumb Rubber Modified Bitumen is manufactured by mixing of crumb rubber powder and Bitumen in a high sheared mixing machine at a higher temperature. Crumb Rubber Modified Bitumen can be classified or grouped depending on the penetration and softening point. BNB CRMB is available in grades 50, 55, and 60.

CRMB is the most appropriate for Indian road condition and can be used for wearing courses at heavy trafficked roads, busy intersections, bridge decks and roundabouts for increased life of the surfacing. It is highly durable and dependable economical solution for ravelling undulation, rutting, bleeding, shoving and potholes solutions.


  • Improve durability
  • Lower life-cycle cost,
  • Less reflective cracking,
  • Better adhesion,
  • Less bleeding during construction,
  • Better drainage,
  • Substantial noise reduction,
  • Wider utilization temperature interval,
  • Better skid resistance etc

Product Range of BNB CRMB & Recommendation for use :

  • BNB CRMB 50 : recommended for cold climate areas
  • BNB CRMB 55 : recommended for moderate climate areas
  • BNB CRMB 60 : recommended for hot climate areas
