When it comes to asphalt, no one knows it better than we do with over a century of experience in paving. Constructors is dedicated to its projects and the use of asphalt by developing and delivering enhanced quality and excellence in all aspects of asphalt technology.
Asphalt, or bitumen, is a form of petroleum that is black, sticky and highly viscous. Used as a binding agent or “glue” and mixed with aggregate (stone, sand, and gravel), it makes asphalt-concrete, the material mainly used in asphalt paving for road construction. Asphalt-concrete (or commonly just called Asphalt) is made up of 3-6% asphalt-bitumen and 94-97% aggregate (stone, sand, and gravel). Known for its strength and durability, asphalt is one of the best options for most paved surfaces.
Asphalt paving is around one-third the cost in comparison to concrete paving. It is also a faster process and is more convenient for the public, especially with regards to roads and highways. With asphalt, paving can happen on one side of the highway or road at a time, allowing traffic to still travel on the roadside opposite construction. Asphalt is also fast curing so typically traffic can begin to travel on the asphalt surface the same day that installation has been completed. Asphalt is also extremely quiet and smooth when driven on, measuring the lowest in noise in comparison to all other pavement surfaces.
Asphalt is also 100% recyclable. In fact, it is the most recycled product in the country.
At Constructors, we take great pride in our community, environment and the planet. On average our asphalt aggregate mixtures contain around 20-50% recycled asphalt. This means that less aggregates are being taken from the earth and old asphalt roads and parking lots are being repurposed into new surfaces.
