Asphalt

Asphalt is a complex material which is produced by distillation in crude oil refineries. It is a viscoelastic material which is a near solid at most ambient temperatures. The engineering properties of the asphalt can be adjusted to meet the needs of a wide set of field state conditions.

There are 3 forms of energy in building a road:
  • Thermal (to heat and keep the oil fluid)
  • Mechanical (to mix, lay and compact)
  • Chemical (to disperse asphalt into small particles for handling)


There are three ways to handle and use asphalt:
  • Heat it (to thin it out while you mix it and lay it)
  • Add oils (to thin it to mix and lay it)
  • Emulsify it (so you can handle it, spray it and mix it at lower temperatures)

Oils (specially thick oils, like asphalt) and water don’t mix.
Kind of like in-laws.

Emulsified Asphalt

Traditional hot mix paving uses thermal energy to heat the asphalt cement and aggregate (rocks, sand & dust) so they can be mixed, transported, laid and compacted before the material cools and stiffens.

 

Emulsified asphalt takes heated asphalt cement and shears it into treated water (with emulsifier chemicals) to allow for the emulsified asphalt to be handled at near ambient temperature. Other performance enhancers such as polymers, adhesion promotors and polymers can be added to optimize engineering the engineering characteristics.

One last word in the world of emulsions.

Workmanship will often trump test results.
