More stories about Asphalt

  • Asphalt Pavement Awards Programs Now Open

    Nominations are being accepted for the annual Quality in Construction and Operational Excellence Award programs, recognizing top asphalt pavement projects and best practices.

  • Asphalt and concrete reconstruction & repair products

    These products will help public works departments place and maintain long-lasting asphalt and concrete pavement that meets federal, state, and local environmental regulations.

  • Mill asphalt pavement quickly

    Mill pavement at conventional speeds to save fuel or run faster to finish the job sooner.

  • Quick-change application system

    Brooms come in 2 1/2-in. polypropylene, 3-in. horsehair, and 3-in. Tampico. Squeegees are 60 durometer 3-in.-by-5/16-in. neoprene rubber.

  • Screed endgates

    Rather than replacing the entire endgate, the V3’s easy-on, easy-off platform saves asphalt paving time by allowing crews to quickly swap attachment shoes.

  • Electric heater keeps asphalt pliant

    Lo-Density storage tank heaters dissipate controlled heat as low as three watts per square inch to prevent coking and damage to asphalt, light and heavy fuel oils, diesel, biodiesel, lube oils, hydraulic fluids, resins/epoxies, and anything else sensitive to high temperatures.

  • Asphalt compactor saves fuel

    Powered by a 20.2 hp automatic idle diesel engine that conserves fuel during inactivity, the BW90AD-5 is an ideal vibratory roller for small and medium asphalt projects.

  • Fibers strengthen asphalt

    Man-made fibers belong to a class of nylon-like synthetic polymers called aramids that are lightweight, yet extremely strong and heat-resistant.

  • Asphalt compactors are fuel-efficient

    Operators dial compaction performance to match the thickness and required density of each lift.

  • Paver has simple setup

    Eco-mode is standard on F Series asphalt pavers to manage RPMs, optimize fuel economy, and lower sound levels.
