Gilsonite is natural mineral bitumen which is found for the first time in USA by Gilson and later on named Gilsonite. It is shinny brittle rock form which is contained hydrogen and carbon plus a lot of elements. It is available on other countries as well like Indonesia, Iraq, Croatia, Colombia, china and Turkey
Quality of Gilsonite is depending on location of drilling. If in the core of mine doing mining the best quality we will have and on beside is more impurity contained.
As it is brittle material easily powdering accordingly to customer requirement? We can produce from 10 mesh to 30-40 mesh then 70-100 mesh and 150-200 mesh also 325 and 600.Depend on each application side of powder would be different and we will advise customer how to use it.
Gilsonite categorizing by mesh, softening point, solubility and impurities and the rest item is not in contract as it is mineral natural and day by day and location by location is different. If customer focus on one item would be loser. I mean if for instance requires high softening point then there is not solubility or less impurity the same.
Packing of Gilsonite is according to customer demand but we recommend to choose the best possible to protect again humidity and sun. Normally oil companies take 50LBS paper bag as they need to be recycled and pass the ISO certificates.
In 50LBS or 25Kg multi paper bag or PP bag, we are using 34 bag per pallet and 20 pallet per 20ft container.Inside of the bags are seal and validity of the goods would be 10 years.
In case customer need big bag we have two options of 500Kg and 1 tons jumbo bag and inside of the bags is liner to keep away from air and humidity.
We can use wooden or plastic pallet under the jumbo bag to easy handling during multimodal transport.
Price of Gilsonite is varying in summer and winter time, also it is depending on oil price and how many mine are under exploration. Normally in winter time a lot of rain and snow in mine area stop the work and most of them prefer to close it till dry season. In summer time weather is too hot and dry so most of them working and store for wet season. In summer price is lower and winter higher and if oil price be more than 50$ then demand in market is very high and normally pulverize production line has queue.
Normally customer asking sample before confirming order. When we sell it is same as available sample and any time available to collect and test. Normally we ask application, if used before or not? Where is destination? What kind of packing you are looking for?
Delivery time is depend on marking of customer, some of them need to color print on the bag so we have to wait to get ready so if they need special requirement we need to wait but if the order is in plain and no mark then during 7 days we can fill 200MT for them 200mesh and 400MT 30-40 mesh in jumbo bag.
Since 15 years we are working from A to Z of Gilsonite as mining and exploration, pulverization and packing , transport and exporting, inspection, packaging, international requirement and standard, financial and global reference in this type of business for this material and stocking in Dubai , Singapore , Malaysia , USA and Turkey. We know what you need to work for you.
