Asphalt is the most recycled, reused and versatile pavement material. It is used on 94% of the 2.6 million paved roads in America. There are five different types of asphalt pavement that you might be driving over.
Porous Asphalt. Porous asphalt has been around since the mid 1970s. This type of asphalt is used in parking lots to enable water to drain through the pavement. This pavement solution is cost-effective and can last for more than twenty years.
Perpetual Pavement. Perpetual pavement is a combination of asphalt and the multi-layer paving design process. They are durable and long-lasting. Installation of perpetual pavement is not time-consuming or traffic-disrupting.
Quiet Pavement. Paving roads with asphalt significantly reduces the noise inside and outside of homes and businesses. Switching up the pavement of a noisy road with stone-matrix asphalt or open-grade friction course mix has been proven to reduce highway noise.
Warm-Mix Asphalt. Warm-mix asphalt is produced the same way that hot-mix asphalt is, except it is 50-100 degrees Fahrenheit lower. Reducing the temperature of the asphalt has a few benefits. These include reducing fuel consumption and the production of greenhouse gases.
Thin Overlays. Thin overlays improve ride quality and reduce pavement distress, noise levels, and life-cycle costs. It is produced by using warm-mix asphalt and recycled materials.
