Asphalt Manufacturing

CONVENTIONAL ASPHALT is produced by heating the asphalt binder to decrease its viscosity, and drying the aggregate to remove moisture from it prior to mixing. Paving and compaction must be performed to meet engineering requirements.

Warm mix asphalt allows the producers of asphalt pavement material to lower the temperatures (by 50 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit) at which the material is mixed and placed on the road. Such drastic reductions have the obvious benefits of cutting fuel consumption and decreasing the production of greenhouse gases, also reducing the production of emissions, there-by improving conditions for workers. Warm mix asphalt is quickly becoming a predominant method highway paving.

POROUS ASPHALT pavements offer developers and planners a new tool in their toolbox for managing storm water. These pavements, used mostly for parking lots, allow water to drain through the pavement surface into a stone recharge bed and infiltrate into the soils below the pavement. Such pavements have been proving their worth since the mid-1970s, and recent changes in storm water regulations have prompted many consulting engineers and public works officials to seek information about them.

COLD MIX ASPHALT is produced by emulsifying the asphalt in water prior to mixing with the aggregate. While in its emulsified state the asphalt is less viscous and the mixture is easy to work and compact. The emulsion will break after enough water evaporates and the cold mix will, ideally, take on the properties of cold HMAC. Cold mix is commonly used as a patching material and on lesser trafficked service roads.
