Materials Used For Surfacing Roads

What is Tarmacadam?

Tarmacadam, or tarmac, is made using macadam surfaces, tar, and sand. Tarmac is also used to refer to a variety of other materials, including tar-grouted macadam, bituminous surface treatments, and modern asphalt concrete.

We offer tarmac road surfacing in Peterborough, Romford and the entirety of the UK, with a range of colours available.

 

What Is Asphalt?

Asphalt and bitmac are formulated by mixing aggregates, bitumen, lime, and sand or finely crushed stone. Hot-rolled asphalt and stone mastic asphalt are specially designed for heavier traffic usage, such as industrial sites and commercial and agricultural yards.

Asphalt comes in a variety of colours, including black, green, red, and beige. Aside from the commonly used black, coloured asphalt can be very expensive. To avoid these high costs, our asphalt contractors can apply various coloured aggregates before the asphalt is compacted. The aggregates are then coated with resin to ensure it achieves a good level of adhesion with the surface.

 

What Is Golden Gravel?

Another type of material we offer is golden gravel, which offers an attractive effect with a smooth finish. These resin bound surfaces are also favoured for providing an anti-slip surface, which is achieved by using hardened aggregates.

Our golden gravel is coated in a clear resin before being applied directly onto hot asphalt. Once compacted into the asphalt surface, the resin melts with the heat which bonds the asphalt and resin-coated aggregates together.
