Roads play an important role in modern society, allowing people, products, and services to move more freely.

Asphalt road surfaces provide a number of advantages, including cost savings, noise reduction, and comfort. Asphalt materials can boost the benefits for both road users and the environment when used in road construction and maintenance.

Asphalt’s benefits simply add up to higher value. Asphalt is a safe, smooth, and long-lasting surface. It is possible to design it in such a way that it will survive perpetually. Asphalt is easy to build and maintain, and asphalt contractors are skilled at “getting in and out” of construction zones. Asphalt is the green pavement since it is 100% reusable and recyclable. Asphalt is also the sole sustainable pavement option due to its flexibility and innovative technologies.

Asphalt is a smooth and comfortable surface.

Asphalt will continue to provide the smooth, quiet ride that motorists have come to expect from this product. Asphalt is a multi-layer flexible pavement with a continuous flow of material passing through the asphalt paver. This form of building eliminates repetitive construction joints, noisy surface texture, and blow-ups. This construction style produces a smooth and silent ride with low rolling resistance, allowing passing vehicles to save up to 5% on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

These features are also beneficial to airport passengers. Because asphalt runways and taxiways are smoother and easier to maintain, they result in safer landings and takeoffs.

Asphalt is a low-cost option.

Asphalt has a low initial cost, lasts a long time, and has a higher residual value than other pavements due to its recyclability.
There is a lot of bitumen in reclaimed asphalt, and warming and reusing it is straightforward. As bitumen is the most expensive component of asphalt, reclaimed asphalt is a valuable raw material. For these reasons, reusing reclaimed asphalt saves a lot of money, especially if the reclaimed old asphalt is only transported a short distance.

Asphalt incorporating reclaimed asphalt performs as well as fresh asphalt – The asphalt industry’s standards and regulations encourage the use of reclaimed asphalt as a raw material in asphalt production. Asphalt manufactured from fresh materials and asphalt including reclaimed asphalt must meet the same quality standards, making reused asphalt just as high-quality, clean, and durable as new asphalt.

Asphalt is a safe material.

In wet situations, new asphalt technology allows efficient distribution and drainage of surface water, reducing water spray and thus improving driver sight. The porous asphalt materials reduce blinding spray significantly, and by dispersing surface water, they also lower the risk of aquaplaning and improve road marker visibility.

The wide range of asphalt combinations available provides specifiers with the perfect solution for all types of roads and weather conditions, ensuring that all road users are safe. Although we refer to ‘asphalt,’ there are many other types and combinations available, each with its own set of properties adapted to specific purposes. There are asphalt combinations, for example, that allow heavy rain to drain quickly off the surface. For regions where hard braking is probable, there are other combinations that can be formulated to a texture on the asphalt surface with excellent skid resistance.

Asphalt is long-lasting and can be built to last indefinitely.

Thick foundation courses are frequently used to support the main load above an unbound granular layer in asphalt pavements. The base course is then covered with a strong-load-bearing intermediate course (binder course). After the intermediate (binder) course, the surface course is 30-40 mm thick. Intermediate and basic courses that are properly designed, built, and maintained last for decades, often without ever needing to be completely rebuilt. The wearing course of asphalt mixes like Stone Mastic Asphalt can last up to 30 years.
