As a rule of thumb, 0.112 tons of asphalt (2" thick) will cover 1 square yard or 9 square feet.

Thus 1 tone of asphalt (2" thick) will cover 8.93 square yards or 80.36 square feet.


Another (possibly more accurate) way of doing this is to use standards

1 ton [long, UK] = 2240 pounds

Density of compacted Asphalt = 147 pounds per cubic foot (1728 cubic inches)

12 inches times 12 inches times 2 inches = 288 cubic inches

Thus the weight of 288 cubic inches of compacted asphalt will be (288/1728)* 147 = 24.5 pounds.

Therefore a tone of asphalt will cover 2240/24.5 = 91.43 square feet to a depth of 2 inches.
