Rosneft Deutschland GmbH, a Rosneft subsidiary, has implemented first deliveries of Alfabit bitumen product to its customers in Germany. The PMB, based on Rosneft’s own technology, was produced in Schwedt using bitumen from the PCK Refinery.
In order to supply customers from Germany and other countries with high-quality bitumen products Rosneft Deutschland intends to set up a sales network of PMB in Germany using the feed coming from PCK, Bayernoil and MIRO refineries.
The company adapted the formulation of Alfabit bitumen product, which successfully passed the tests in severe Russian climate conditions and demonstrated resistance to high loads. A distinctive feature of Alfabit is its high elasticity and wear resistance. Asphalt mixtures with addition of this PMB significantly increase the service life of pavement and extend interrepair operation time. PMB Alfabit was used for road coating of the Formula 1 track in Sochi.
