One of the asphalt industry’s more recent and environmentally friendly technologies is the use of warm-mix asphalt in paving. Traditional hot-mix asphalt mixtures require a great deal of fuel consumption and increase the production of greenhouse gases. Modern warm-mix asphalt is just as effective and allows us to pave at lower temperatures – a reduction between 50 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Warm-mix asphalt is an award-winning innovation in construction, and in addition to the ability to pave at lower temperatures includes benefits like better paving compaction and the potential to recycle at higher rates. Superior Paving Corp. was one of the early adopters of warm-mix paving, and we use this technology in many of our projects.
