What’s the Difference Between Hot, Warm, and Cold Mix Asphalt?

cold mix asphalt

Road workers have to know what type of asphalt is best to use.

Many people don’t realize that there are different types of asphalt that are used for various commercial and residential projects. All asphalt is a mix of coarse aggregate stone, sand, fine aggregate stone, and petroleum-based asphalt cement. Depending on the mixing process and the temperatures that are used, the asphalt will be considered hot mix asphalt, warm mix asphalt, or cold mix asphalt.

HOT MIX ASPHALT

Hot mix asphalt is heated and poured at temperatures ranging from 300 to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Chances are, this is the asphalt that has been used on projects around your home in the past and on the streets, highways, and interstates around it. It is a flexible mix that is highly weather resistant and able to repel water (which is why it’s such a popular choice!). Hot mix asphalt is used on days that are above 40 degrees only, because it cools down very quickly.

WARM MIX ASPHALT

Warm mix asphalt is used in about a third of paving projects. It is manufactured between 200-250 degrees and uses fewer fossil fuels resources in the manufacturing process. It is less expensive to make and use than hot mix asphalt. Warm mix asphalt is more flexible in terms of use, as it cools more slowly than hot mix asphalt. It can be shipped longer distances and over a greater time period during the year, so nighttime or winter construction projects typically utilize it.

COLD MIX ASPHALT

Cold mix asphalt is the most affordable option on the market, because it doesn’t need heat during the process. It is typically used to repair cracks over an inch wide and potholes that pop up during the winter months. It is not a substitute for a formal repair with hot mix or warm mix asphalt during the warmer months, as it will not last nearly as long.

But would it be hot to the touch on a hit day?

The closest thing I found is artificial turf fields have been found to be as much as 160 degrees.

The track I walk, when I'm in my hometown, it squishy but it's not asphalt. It's red and it's something else. Definitely not asphalt. I don't think it gets very hot. Definitely not as hot as the street. But seriously, if it's hot out, just touch it and see? This doesn't seem like such a big mystery. Touch it.

The running tracks are not asphault. They are a rubber composite, sometimes made from recycled tires. There are a lot of variables to how how they will get. Color, sun exposure, heat index. A white or red track won't get as hot as a black one. Neither black nor white will get as hot as a true asphault surface. They do a pretty good job at dispursing the heat. They can still be dangerous though. Imagine the sun beating down on a black tire all day long, then you touching it. It will be hotter than the track, but same theory. The track overlay is often very pourous allowing for airflow.
