What is Asphalt?
Asphalt pavement a high-quality, engineered material made from aggregates (stone, sand or gravel) using asphalt cement as a binder. Asphalt is mainly used for constructing and maintaining all kind of roads, parking areas as well as play and sport areas.
Why Use Asphalt?
Asphalt is Cost-efficient
Asphalt has low initial costs, lasts long, and due to its recyclability, has residual value greater than other pavements.
Asphalt is Safer:
Asphalt paving is the safer choice for driveways, roads and parking lots. The darker color that asphalt provides reduces road glare and provides an excellent contrast for road stripes. The darker color also helps in melting snow and ice.
Asphalt is Durable:
Well-designed, well-built asphalt pavements last many years. For instance, the entire New Jersey Turnpike is asphalt and was built in 1951. It has never had a failure in the pavement structure in over 65 years. Engineers for the turnpike expects it to last another 50 years.
The Choice is Simple
Asphalt is safe, durable, cost effective and recyclable. Constructed correctly, asphalt can last for many years. It’s fast to construct, easy to maintain, and repairable is need be. Asphalt costs nearly half as much as concrete. Asphalt is also 100% recyclable.
