How Asphalt Cement Is Made

Asphalt Concrete

Typically, the aggregate constitutes 90–95% (w/w) of the total mixture and the asphalt cement (asphalt binder) constitutes 5–10% (w/w) of the total mixture to form the asphalt concrete. In the production process, the aggregate and binder are combined in an efficient manufacturing plant which produces the specified material.

How Cement is Made

Lafarge products, from cement to ready-mix concrete to stone and asphalt, are in 80 per cent of the buildings and roads in Western Canada. Cement is manufactured by thermally treating a mineral mixture of limestone, sandstone and shale, with some minor raw materials, allowing Exshaw to serve the community by using waste products that would otherwise be landfilled.

What is Asphalt Concrete? (with pictures)

2021/01/29In asphalt concrete, the asphaltic bitumen acts as a sort of glue that binds the aggregate pieces together. Many parking lots are paved with asphalt concrete. Although the process of paving streets with tar goes backs as far as eighth century Baghdad, no real changes in the process came about until the 20th century brought the first automobiles to public use.
