Hot Mix Aphalt
Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) is a generic term that includes many different types of mixtures of aggregates and asphalt cement, a product of crude oil refinement, at elevated temperatures (typically between 300ºF and 350ºF) in an asphalt plant. The staff at our asphalt plants have the knowledge and capability to design and produce an HMA mix to meet your specifications or you may choose one of our standard mix designs for your project. If you are unsure what type of HMA mix is right for your project, contact us and we will be glad to assist you in selecting an appropriate mix design that meets your needs. All of our standard mix designs have been approved by the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
Cold Mix Aphalt
Cold Mix Asphalt is generally manufactured with water-based emulsified or cutback asphalt and different types of mixtures of aggregates and is generally placed at atmospheric temperatures. Cold Mix Asphalt can be used as a surface mix or as a sub-base course under the right conditions. Cold Mix Asphalt surface courses are suitable for light and medium traffic loads and typically require a seal coat or HMA overlay for surface protection. Cold Mix Asphalt is commonly used as a patching material and on low volume service roadway surfaces.
