Asphalt Cements

Asphalt Cements

Firm, tough surface for roads, streets and airport runways.

Asphalt cement is a strong, versatile, weather and chemical resistant binding material that has a variety of uses, perhaps most commonly, it is used to bind crushed stone and aggregate into a firm, tough surface for roads, streets, and airport runways.

The principal source of asphalt cement is 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, in turn affecting the performance of the residual asphalt on the road.

Asphalt cements can also 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-controlled conditions, allowing us to deliver consistent results and top performance every time.
