What is Asphalt?

Asphalt is produced in a plant that heats, dries and mixes aggregate, bitumen and sand into a composite mix. It is then applied through a paving machine on site as a solid material at a nominated or required thickness, relative to the end use. Asphalt results in a smoother and more durable asphalt road surface than a bitumen-sealed road.

Asphalt Patches

Asphalt patching is where there is a damaged section of asphalt or bitumen seal, which has broken through to the road material underneath which has caused a pothole.

A few things can cause this, but the new main reasons are due to base material failure or old age, which has caused it to become brittle.

The process to repair is to remove the damaged section of asphalt, repair the base material if required and place an asphalt patch in its place.

Asphalt Paving

Asphalt paving is the term for machine-placed asphalt and is required when large areas are required to be covered with asphalt but are too large to be completed by hand.

A machine called an asphalt paver is used for this process, which has asphalt tipped into it by an asphalt cartage truck, then drives along and lays asphalt in thicknesses, while the depths are controlled by two additional operators.

You will typically see this method used for subdivisions, roads, and large patch sections.

Asphalt Overlays

Asphalt overlays involve the process of overlaying new asphalt over existing asphalt or bitumen seal.

This process can be budget-friendly and time-saving, but it still requires the correct preparation to ensure the long life of the asphalt pavement. Some of the process can involve profiling the existing asphalt at the edges or around other structures within the area of the road or car park to ensure clean transitions.

Cement stabilisation or partial base repairs may also be required before an overlay is completed.
