Ready when you need it.
Cold mix asphalt is mixed and applied at lower temperatures than conventional hot mix, making it perfect for the western Canadian environment. Cold mix asphalt can be premixed and stored for months at a time, making it ideal for road repairs and other low-volume uses.
Cold mix asphalt is produced when a special type of emulsified asphalt is mixed with aggregates. The emulsion used reduces the viscosity of the asphalt, making it pliable even at cold temperatures.
Cold mix asphalt also has a number of environmental benefits. Low-temperature mixing reduces fuel consumption and resulting fumes. Production of cold mix asphalt doesn’t require high temperatures, therefore, emissions from the production facility are also reduced.
