Bitumen is the primary material used in the construction of bituminous paving or asphalt roads. Across the European road network, spanning over 5.5 million kilometres, bituminous paving is the principal road surface applied. It has excellent water-proofing properties and is also widely used for roofing, along with a wide range of other household and industrial applications, from emulsion paints to sound-proofing.
