Warm Mix Asphalt Explained
Warm mix asphalt has grown in popularity in recent years because of its versatility. It can be used for several purposes, which include filling potholes and leveling out new roads. This durable substance that can withstand heavy amounts of traffic and that is why it is commonly used for highways. Many people are under the assumption that warm mix and hot mix are the same; however, there are striking differences between the two. Most notably being that warm mix asphalt is produced at a significantly lower temperature than hot mix asphalt. Also, warm mix asphalt takes significantly longer to cool than hot mix asphalt.
What Makes Warm Mix Asphalt An Appealing Option?
Better For The Environment
Warm mix asphalt has the least environmental impact out of the three asphalt mix types. This is because it less heat is required, which means warm mix asphalt uses less fuel and produces fewer hydrocarbon emissions.
Safer and Healthier To Use
Warm mix asphalt is produced at a lower temperature, which makes it safer for construction workers. Also, there are fewer air pollutants which are damaging to inhale.
More Flexibility In Usage
Since warm mix asphalt takes longer to cool than hot mix asphalt, construction projects can be extended past the typical road construction months of the year.
