Asphalt and bitumen emulsion offers a surface that is very durable and cost efficient, without a need for joints

What is the difference between Bitumen and Asphalt?

The term bitumen is often mistakenly used to describe asphalt, but is actually the liquid binder that holds asphalt together.
A bitumen-sealed road has a layer of bitumen sprayed and covered with an aggregate. This process is then repeated to give a two-coat seal.

 

Asphalt is produced by heating, drying and mixing aggregate, bitumen and sand into a composite mix. It is 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 surface than a bitumen-sealed road.  Unlike bricks and concrete asphalt and bitumen emulsion doesn’t encourage ants and weeds in the joints and can be resurfaced in future without removal of the old surface.

 

Asphalt and bitumen emulsion provides a cost effective look, finish and a future that allows for change.
