Calculating how much asphalt you need
Asphalt basics & applications
Types of asphalt
|Hot Mix Asphalt||Also known as "Dense Graded Mix," it is the most popular type. It is ideal for all traffic conditions and for repairing and surfacing needs. The binder is heated at high temperatures to reduce viscosity. This calculator matches the closest type of asphalt.|
|Warm Mix Asphalt||This asphalt is used in about one-third of road-paving jobs. It's produced at lower temperatures (HMA) and is suitable for paved during off-season months or overnight projects.|
|Driveway Mix Asphalt||A cheaper mix designed to be used in driveways and parking areas. It can be made up of crushed stone, sand, and gravel.|
|Porous Asphalt||It is made with only crushed stone and small sand. The mix makes it permeable to water. Although it is more costly, this system does not require drainage. It requires an open-graded limestone bed with depth and size that water does not rise to asphalt level.|
