Asphalt Concrete

Asphalt Concrete

Asphalt concrete is the mixing of aggregate and liquid asphalt at elevated temperatures in an asphalt plant. Typically, asphalt concrete mixtures are divided into three mixture categories: dense-graded; open-graded; and fine-graded as a function of the aggregate gradation used in the mix. In addition to our standard mixes Reed & Graham, Inc. proudly produces more environmentally responsible asphalt concrete mixes such as (WMA) warm mix asphalt manufactured at lower temperatures and (RAP) recycled asphalt pavement manufactured using a percentage of recycled aggregate.
