Depending on its composition asphalt melts between 54-173°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 °C - hot enough to cause second degree burns.

The main asphalt paving product is hot mix asphalt, in which asphalt cement is used to bind a mixture of stone, sand, and gravel.


the mantle is the part of earth that is hot like asphalt


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.


because it absorbs the heat from the sun


The asphalt expands, and the oils start to come out. The sun then shines off of the oils.


Asphalt, especially when it is fairly new, is almost solid black in color. Black absorbs almost all the light that hits it and converts that light energy to heat energy. Therefore, the surface can get quite hot.



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


Cold Mix Asphalt is a mixture of aggregate and asphalt. Cutback asphalt is a liquid asphalt. Cold Mix Asphalt is a mixture of Aggregate and Asphalt. The Asphalt is usually am emulsion asphalt or a cutback asphalt. An emulsion asphalt is asphalt cement blended with water. Cutback asphalt is asphalt cement blended with a fuel oil, kerosene, or a naptha. The water, fuel oil, kerosene or Naphta evaporates and leaves the asphalt.

Asphalt is the correct spelling.


Use asphalt as a noun. I fell on the asphalt and hurt my knee.


Between 250 and 280 is typical for hot mix.


Asphalt is generally black or a dark color and usually has very little to shade it. Since it is a dark color, it will absorb and retain the heat from the sun, making it much warmer than the surrounding air temperature.


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.


Yes, the word asphalt is a noun as well as a verb. The noun asphalt is a common, concrete noun, mass (uncountable) noun; a word for a substance. The verb asphalt is to cover or pave with asphalt. Example sentences: Noun: The asphalt on our driveway is starting to crack. Verb: Our road is closed today so the town can asphalt it.


AC is an abbreviation for asphalt. The terms "asphalt (or asphaltic) concrete", "bituminous asphalt concrete" and the abbreviation "AC" are typically used only in engineering and construction documents and literature. ASPH or AP is the abbreviation of Asphalt.


Asphalt is a noun and a verb.
