Cold mix asphalt (CMA)
Cold mix asphalt (CMA) is produced without the need for heating. It typically contains emulsified asphalt, which allows it to be mixed and compacted even in colder weather conditions. Cold mix asphalt is commonly used for temporary repairs, patching and pothole filling.
Permeable or porous asphalt surfaces can be used to manage stormwater effectively. It is made with larger particles of aggregate which allow water to infiltrate through the surface. This is good for use with pavements, allowing water to pass through the asphalt layer, reducing surface run-off.
Asphalt emulsion is a mixture of asphalt binder and water, stabilised with an emulsifying agent. It is commonly used in surface treatments and repairs, such as chip seals and slurry seals, to protect and rejuvenate existing asphalt surfaces. It is a cost-effective solution to preserve and maintain asphalt surfaces.
An asphalt concrete overlay is used to restore the condition of an asphalt road. It involves applying a new layer of asphalt over the existing surface to improve the condition and ride quality. The thickness of the asphalt overlay will depend on the condition of the road being treated.
