How hot is asphalt?
Depending on its composition asphalt melts between 54-173Â°C. Roofing asphalt will tend to be higher as it is applied on a slope and must set up quickly. Sun baked asphalt can reach temperatures of 145 Â°C - hot enough to cause second degree burns.

What is the difference between hot asphalt and cold asphalt?
Hot mix asphalt is is heated for application, which thins the material. Remember those steaming metal buckets you used to see on industrial rooftops? Cold asphalt is liquified with something else besides heat. There are two kinds: Emulsified asphalt is mixed with water and an emulsifying agent. Think of it like salad dressing that does not separate in the bottle. The other kind is called Cutback asphalt and is mixed with a petroleum solvent such as naptha, gasoline, or kerosene. They both are liquids at ambient temperature when applied; then the solvent or water evaporates, leaving the asphalt behind. Look up at asphaltinstitute.org

How much does it cost to recycle asphalt shingles?
The cost to recycle asphalt shingles is rather low. Sometimes free. Your biggest cost will be the transportation cost to haul them to your local paving contractor. A cost that the contractor would have is the shredding of the shingles to make them usable in hot mix asphalt. With the percentage of asphalt binder usually around 17-18% in asphalt shingles, most paving contractors will either take them off your hands for free or buy them from you. Asphalt binder is what is left over after gasoline, diesel, kerosene, and other volatiles are distilled off of crude oil. With the rising oil prices, all asphalt paving contractors are looking for ways to increase the amount of recycled asphalt pavement or shingles they use in their mix designs. I am in the Asphalt Recycling business as we speak. I am involved with this through out the U.S. and the answer above is wrong. No one in the U.S. is paying for asphalt shingles at this time! You will receive a discounted tipping fee at the asphalt shingle recycling center. I was just at the National Asphalt conference in Chicago, were everyone who is someone in the asphalt business, or is associated with the Asphalt Recycling end were at. There is no talk of the Asphalt producers paying for them because part of the business plan is to collect those fees. Paying for asphalt shingles to be dumped at your site is about 10-20 years away.
