Asphalt plays an important role in our daily activities.
When we travel to work or school, or when we buy goods in a shop or via internet, asphalt roads are being used. In most cases asphalt surfaces are grey or black and sometimes yellow or red. There is more knowledge and science involved in this material than most people realise.
There are many types of asphalt, each having specific characteristics; some are designed to be porous and very silent, others to be impermeable, etc. They can also be produced in different ways; hot, warm, half warm or cold.
Asphalt is used in roads, railway beds, airport runways, taxiways, bicycle paths, playgrounds, running tracks, tennis courts, barn floors, greenhouse floors, ports, bridges, tunnels, landfill caps, etc.
