Asiagilsonite Material Specifications

Gilsonite, Asphaltum, Asphaltite, Natural Asphalt is similar to hard petroleum asphalt. Gilsonite is soluble in aromatic and aliphatic solvents, as well as petroleum asphalt. Due to its unique compatibility, Gilsonite is frequently used to harden softer petroleum products. Gilsonite in mass is a shiny, black substance similar in appearance to the mineral obsidian. It is brittle and can be easily crushed into a dark brown powder. Gilsonite is found below the earth’s surface in vertical veins or seams that are generally between two and six feet in width. The veins are nearly parallel to each other and are oriented in a North West to South East direction. The vein will show up on the surface as a thin outcropping and gradually widen as it goes deeper.  Due to the narrow mining face,Gilsonite is mined today, much like it was 50 or 100 years ago.  The primary difference is that modern miners use pneumatic chipping hammers and mechanical hoists.

We have other different aspects including:

  • Fully mechanized system, for production with the best quality and stability in production quality,
  • Complete production cycle with air suction system without any environmental pollution
  • The only factory that has a dryer for this type of product in the world (because it is dangerous, no factory deals with this issue) and drying the load in rainy seasons is a very important point for buyers.
  •  Automatic and one-handed grading
  • Automatic packaging machine, with the lowest tolerance in packaging
  • Covered warehouses to protect packages from heat and create adhesion in the material after production
  • Majhar laboratory for quality control
  • Having a wide range of raw materials for the production of any grade at the customer’s request
  • Speed in production and delivery due to the high volume of production, the shortest production time and delivery with the quality requested by the customer
  • Speed and accuracy in ports and customs by having the best port clearance staff
