What is asphalt paving?

The term asphalt paving refers to the paving of high-traffic areas. This pavement material is for sidewalks, curbs, patios, and decks. It is a combination of asphalt and other materials. Depending on the area, asphalt paving can be smooth or coarse.

How to install asphalt?

The process of installing asphalt is very simple. We do this using a rolling machine. The machine attaches to an excavator. It carries the material towards the location you are paving.  There are a number of techniques for rolling the material.

Rolling out the material – The machine operator puts the material in a rolled state onto a moving track. The track stays in motion and rolls towards the location. A small bump is made at the end of the track. This bumps the track along and prepares it for another roll. Once the track is along, the machine is given a kick and moves the material into position.

Rolling in materials – The machine operator gives instructions on how to roll out the materials onto the track. Techniques include making a few small bumps along the track, pushing material against the end of the track, and throwing the track end over end to push material onto the track.

The material’s main purpose is to give traction on the track. Sometimes, there are other purposes.  For example, if the track is brick, its purpose is to level.

What are the main things to know when rolling out the asphalt?
