The final instalment! Here at Monarch Paving we hope to educate the north shore. So that Vancouver can speak like a professional paver.
Maintenance Mix – A mixture of asphalt emulsion and mineral aggregate (see Monarch Paving Presents: Asphalt Speak Part 1) used in relatively small areas to patch holes, depressions, and distressed areas in existing pavements.
Mineral Fillers – Sand and fine particles of mineral material that exhibit specific characteristics that are helpful in the design and construction of asphalt pavements.
Pavement Base – The lower or underlying pavement course atop the subbase or natural earth and under the top or wearing layer.
Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement – Asphalt paving material that has been removed from a road or highway and crushed for reuse or recycling into new pavements.
Recycled Asphalt Mix – A mixture made by processing recycled asphalt pavement into new pavement. This is used in materials such as roofing shingles, glass, foundry sand, and slag can be used in the mix.
That about sums it up Vancouver! Thanks for listening
