What is Tarmacadam?
Although most people refer to black road surfacing material as tarmac, tarmac as a material technically no longer exists and is in fact the trading name of a huge manufacturing company known as ‘Tarmac Trading Ltd’.
Tarmacadam, or tarmac, is a road surfacing material made by combining 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.
What Is Asphalt?
Today we have asphalt and bitmac road surfacing materials which are formulated by mixing aggregates, bitumen, lime, and sand or finely crushed stone. These are mixed together in a huge force mixer before being heated to a high temperature to ensure all the aggregates and bitumen have bonded together.
The materials are then transported to the site using specialist insulated vehicles which ensure they stay hot and retain their flexibility. The asphalt or bitmac can then be levelled and compacted by heavy rollers to ensure everything is bonded together with a clean, smooth finish.
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 we 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 road surfacing we offer is golden gravel, which offers an attractive golden gravel effect with a smooth finish. This type of road surfacing is 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between tarmac and asphalt?
Tarmac is created when a layer of crushed stone or aggregate is mixed and coated with tar. Asphalt is a more modern road surfacing material made with bitumen rather than tar. While asphalt and tarmac are similar, asphalt is considered to be the more hard-wearing of the two.
