Hot Mix Asphalt
Hot mix asphalt is heated and layed at temperatures ranging from 300 to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Chances are, this is the asphalt that has been used on projects around your home in the past and on the streets, highways, and interstates around it. It is a flexible mix that is highly weather resistant and able to repel water. Hot mix asphalt is used on days that are above 40 degrees only.
Cold Mix Asphalt
Cold mix, also known as cold patch, can be used in any temperature. Cold mix is an excellent pot-hole filler because it can be applied right from the container without heating. Cold asphalt also doesn’t require any special heavy rolling machines or special applicators as it can be shoveled or poured into a pothole or utility cut and tamped down with a hand tool.

Asphalt Mix Information
Typical asphalt mixes are composed of 5% asphalt cement and 95% aggregates (stone, sand and gravel). Due to its highly viscous nature, asphalt must be heated so it can be mixed with the aggregates at the asphalt mixing facility.
The durability and flexibility of the asphalt can be altered by increasing or decreasing the size of the aggregate. It can also be modified by using different binders, and recycled material (asphalt millings and asphalt roofing shingles.) Adjusting these properties can change the look and the overall life of your asphalt. So it is important to know what mix you are receiving.
There are several different asphalt mix designs available. The type of mix selected should be married to the intended use of the surface. For example: High volume highways should receive a different mix type than parking lots. Truck distribution centers should have a different mix design than a subdivision street.
