The answer is, it depends. Different types of bituminous cement concrete (asphalt hot mix) use different percentages of asphalt cement. In Virginia, base mixes use at least 4.4% asphalt, while surface mixes are up to about 6%. Liquid asphalt is a little heavier than water; it weighs about 9.4#/gallon (depending on the source and grade). Here's the math: Base mix 2000#/ton x 4.4%/9.4#/gal. = 9.36 gal/ton surface mix 2000#/ton x 6%/9.4#/gal. = 12.76 gal/ton hope this answers the question.

Thanks for the feedback!
the asphalt denotes a mixture of bitumen and aggregates. It is a "closed" material having no or little empty. For the geologist, natural asphalt are petroleum extra-heavy,… highly viscous to solid consistency It is found trapped them in sandy matrix (oil sands) or calcareous matrix (asphaltic or bituminous limestone created as a result of the joint compression of both materials over time by higher layers; limestone is then impregnated at heart by bitumen (approximately 12% bitumen). This rock is currently operated as a powder which is incorporated in other formulations, from mines or from surface outcrops. entreprise lévisienne
Hot-mix asphalt concrete is a mixture of aggregate (crushed stone, gravel and sand) and asphalt binder. asphalt is a hydrocarbon mixture which makes the road.
It depends one what you are measuring. A ton of rock and a ton of dirt measure out to different amounts of yards.
You could do this, but the results will depend on the condition and depth of the asphalt. You need a good foundation to support the cement so that it will last without shiftin…g or cracking. Most times, it seems that it is money well-spent to dig up the existing asphalt, add in crushed rock or concrete and rebar before repaving with cement. See the attached article. what are you planing to do? ive heard of using asphalt sealer etc over a cement driveway and it seemed to holdup well. But....as for doing it the other way around. do you have the extra room for like 6 inches of cement etc? but again the specific application would help alot to achieve a better answer
I usually load slow cure cutback asphalt cement between 70-75 degrees celsius for shipping.
the bitumen binder is about the same as water (at 20 Celsius) with 6% binder asphalt cement is 2.423 that of water
Yes, depending upon the finish technique concrete can be almost as smooth as glass. If you hire someone to do this make sure they have experience in this technique as it… takes a lot of skill.
Asphalt installation is usually bid by the square yard, the installer will buy asphalt by the ton, and it will be delivered in a truck measured in cubic yards. Therefore…, a volume/weight/area ratio is required. In short, an estimator will typically assume that one square yard of compacted asphalt laid one inch deep will weigh approximately 111 pounds.
Asphalt cement is an amorphous polymer, which makes defining the melting point difficult. It's more common to refer to the glassy-transition temperature and the softening temp…erature. The glassy-transition temperature of asphalt cement is between -35 °C to -10 °C and the softening point ranges from 30 °C to 150 °C. While these temperatures vary for each asphalt, exact values an be determined with a DSC test and the ring and ball test respectfully.
I think it is $504.00 no your wrong states are different but Florida is like $80.oo a ton
Asphalt is the thickest part of crude oil after all the lighter parts have been refined out of it. Mixed with sand and small gravel it is put down, compacted and get hard when… it cools. The oil hold the sand and gravel in place, but it is not a cement like glue.
It's the phenomenon which results in urban settings when the sun's rays are absorbed by the artificial components of roadways and buildings, and radiated back upward, escalati…ng temperatures to greater extremes than otherwise present in more natural areas.
Asphalt, it is stickier.
I use a conversion factor of 152 pcf (pounds per cubic foot) for asphalt, as a general rule of thumb. For a CY, multiply by 27, to get 4,104 pcy (pounds per cubic yard) of asp…halt.
call your local asphalt company... prices vary on the region.
No. Rock is defined by being made up of minerals. Cement is used to made pavement by mixing rock and other materials. Asphalt is a semi solid material used in the production o…f oil and pavement. Asphalt and cement are commonly used together.
