What Makes Warm Mix Asphalt Sustainable
Thanks to advances in technology, Warm Mix Asphalt, or WMA, is produced at lower temperatures, saving energy and reducing the production of greenhouse gases.
Used in about 30% all paving projects such as roads, interstates, highways, driveways, cart paths, and walking paths, it can be laid either day or night. With a manufacturing temperature of between 200-250 Fahrenheit, WMA can be used in cooler months, beyond the normal paving and construction months.
- Uses fewer fossil fuels and resources during manufacturing
- Includes additives and binders for easier low temperature pouring, spreading.
- Less smoke, fumes, dust. Can be safely used in tunnels with low air quality
- Better for workers and the environment!
