Asphalt cement is a strong, versatile and weather- and chemical-resistant binding material that adapts itself to a variety of uses, perhaps most commonly to bind crushed stone and aggregate into a firm, tough surface for roads, streets and airport runways.
The principal source of asphalt cements is found in the refining process of crude petroleum. The varying chemical and physical characteristics are primarily due to inherent variations in crude oil sources and refining practices, which in turn affect the performance of the residual asphalt on the road.
Asphalt cements can be modified to meet different criteria, from warm mix applications to specific climate conditions. Whatever the grade or modifications you require, you can trust McAsphalt asphalt cements to be engineered under strict quality conditions, allowing us to deliver consistent results and top performance every time.
