Calculate gallons of asphalt cement in a ton of asphalt?
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.

If you are positive that it is asphalt I would not suggest adhering tile directly to the asphalt. If removal of asphalt is not an option I would install a subfloor and use thi…nset mortar to adhere the tile. Another option (probably the better option) would be to pour a concrete mix over the asphalt. Than use thinset to install the tile. The concrete will incapsolate the asphalt. Asphalt more than likely has oils in it and can be a hazard.
It's the same thing as roofing tar.
L x W x thickness(convert inches to ft) = Cubic Feet(CF) Then ... CF x density (approx 145# per cf) / 2000 = tons Say you want a driveway 10' x 100' that will be 4 inches t…hick Multiply 10 x 100 x .33(4/12) = 330 CF Then 330 x 145 / 2000(ton=2000#) = 23.93 tons of Hot-Mix asphalt Shorthand 145# per CF = 12.08# per sq in. | 4 inches x 12.08 = 48.32 thus 10 x 100 x 48.32 / 2000 = 24.16. Even though there are decimal differences in these two examples they are more than acceptable for driveway asphalt estimates. While asphalt density will vary some depending on the mix design and the aggregate used, a good rule of thumb is that it will take about 110# to cover a square yard one inch thick. Measure the sq ft and divide by 9 to get the area. Multiply this by 110 to get the pounds of asphalt needed, then divide by 2000 to convert it to tons required for a 1" thickness. Multiply by the thickness required to get the total tonnage required for the job.

It of course depends on the depth. An old rule of thumb is one ton will cover one square yard (3'x3') at 18 inch depth. Of course we don't place it 18 inches d…eep very often. But if you divide 18 by the number of inches you do plan to lay, it will tell you how many square yards can be covered. For example, at 3" depth, divide 18 by 3 = 6 square yards will be covered. Another way is to calculate the volume you are covering in cubic feet such as 15 feet by 50 feet by 3 inches (0.25'), = total cubic feet. Then divide totl cubic feet by 150 (apprx. wt per cubuc foot of asphalt)=TONS NEEDED
I think it is $504.00 no your wrong states are different but Florida is like $80.oo a ton
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
the bitumen binder is about the same as water (at 20 Celsius) with 6% binder asphalt cement is 2.423 that of water
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.
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.
Aproximately 17.78 Sq Yds of asphalt @ 1" thick per ton. Aproximately 17.78 Sq Yds of asphalt @ 1" thick per ton.
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 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.
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
Asphalt is a petroleum based product. It is mixed with rock and it acts like a binder and when layed and compressed, it makes a smooth surface like a road. soil cement i…s rock mixed with portland cement with enough water added to bid it together. It's normally used as a base for a road. it's pure mineral with water.
