Hot Mix Asphalt

Hot mix asphalt (asphalt concrete) is a high-quality, thoroughly controlled uniform mixture of asphalt binder and well-graded aggregate fractions, thoroughly compacted into a uniform, dense mass. The asphalt mixture is normally produced through an asphalt plant, then placed by a paving machine and compacted by asphalt rollers.
