A bit of a short post Vancouver, but still important!
Binder – “glue” . With asphalt pavements, it is asphalt cement (see Monarch Paving Present Asphalt Speak Part 1). It may be modified to improve the properties of the asphalt.
Crumb Rubber – Asphalt rubber binding with a constancy between coffee grinds and peanut butter. Sounds delicious! I know some on the lower mainland that would try it
Hot Mix Asphalt (Asphalt Pavement) – A high quality, thoroughly controlled, engineered asphalt cement and mixing it with aggregates (see Monarch Paving Presents: Asphalt Speak Part 1)
Hot Mix Asphalt Overlay – one or more courses (layers) of Hot Mix Asphalt over existing asphalt. At Monarch Paving we use this technique to do quick, inexpensive fixes all over the greater Vancouver area. From Langley to Squamish and everywhere in between!
