Learn all about Asphalt
Asphalt plays an important role in our daily activities. When we travel to work or school, or when we buy goods in a shop or via internet, asphalt roads are being used.
There is more knowledge and science involved in this material than most people realise. This allows producing many different types of asphalt, each having specific characteristics. Some are designed to be porous and very silent, others to be impermeable, etc. In most cases, asphalt surfaces are grey or black although it is also possible to find them yellow or red.
