Performance-Graded Asphalt Cements

Performance-Graded Asphalt Cements

Specified by climatic conditions, traffic volume and traffic type.

McAsphalt’s performance-graded asphalt cement products meet or exceed the AASHTO M 320 and M 332 specification requirements and are engineered to address fundamental material properties that account for specific pavement distresses and failure mechanisms. The performance grade determines the temperature range in which the asphalt cement will not become too soft or too brittle. It is determined by considering climatic conditions, traffic volume, and traffic type.
