The most popular methods used by asphalt manufacturers are hot mixing and cold mixing. Hot mixing implies heating the aggregates, in order to decrease the viscosity of the binding agents and make the mixture more fluid, then drying it, so that all remaining moisture is eliminated. The asphalt produced through this method has to remain hot during the paving and compaction process. Cold mixing implies combining quarter inch chip and proprietary oil, the elements being mixed as they are, without the need to be warmed. This mixture does not need to be warm when it is used.
Asphalt manufacturers pay specific attention to environmental issues, all emissions being rigorously controlled and the dust and particulates being recollected and reused in the heating process. This not only helps avoiding air pollution, but also helps asphalt manufacturers increase the efficiency of the heating process.
