Strategically located throughout the East Coast, our US facilities provide a local presence with a host of innovative and high quality products to meet the most demanding infrastructure development, pavement construction and re-construction, pavement preservation, and industrial application needs. From highways to bridges, parking lots to runways, whatever your asphalt application or demand, Associated Asphalt's network of terminal facilities can deliver.


Our network of 32 terminals along the East Coast is capable of providing a ready supply of a variety of penetration and viscosity grades of asphalt. Supply can be picked up on-site by commercial vehicles or in some locations, by our fleet of trucks.


Our rail infrastructure helps ensure timely and cost-effective transport of our products and supplies. Each of our 17 land-based liquid asphalt terminals is directly accessible via rail lines operated by Norfolk Southern or CSX.


Asphalt pavements deliver the performance that agencies, designers, owners, and drivers demand. A solution for the entire transportation network, asphalt is a completely recyclable material that delivers a safe, smooth, quick-to-construct pavement optimized for costs, community, and environment. Asphalt roads are proven solutions that work for your budget, community, and future. Paving with asphalt delivers immediate benefits today while looking out for tomorrow.


Asphalt is flexible, adaptable, versatile, customizable, and ready to meet just about every pavement need. With the option of nighttime construction and without the lengthy curing time typical of concrete, asphalt pavements offer the flexibility needed to handle all levels of traffic, and they can be maintained or repaired quickly.


The asphalt industry innovations continue to afford asphalt pavement as the most economical, efficient, and environmentally friendly pavement. Asphalt engineers are constantly innovating to make roads perform for today and the future. The asphalt industry is committed to workforce training and to scientifically analyzing pavements to ensure the best products.


Did you know that over 90 percent of the roads in America are surfaced with asphalt? For those who know the benefits of asphalt, there is no substitute. Asphalt pavement, right for America, right now and into the future.


The Role of Asphalt in Livable Communities acknowledges the momentum toward creating more livable communities and details the versatility of asphalt pavements and sustainable qualities that make it a natural source for advancing the goals of livability.


Asphalt has always been and continues to be the pavement of choice for America. This brochure discusses the benefits of the product and why asphalt is right for America, right now and into the future.


Aggregates used for asphalt mixtures could be crushed rock, sand, gravel or slags. Nowadays, certain waste and by-products, such as construction and demolition debris, are being used as aggregates, which increases the sustainability of asphalt.


An average asphalt pavement consists of the road structure above the formation level which includes unbound and bituminous-bound materials. This gives the pavement the ability to distribute the loads of the traffic before it arrives at the formation level. Normally, pavements are made of different layers:


Asphalt is produced in an asphalt plant. This can be a fixed plant or even in a mobile mixing plant. It is possible to produce in an asphalt plant up to 800 tons per hour. The average production temperature of hot mix asphalt is between 150 and 180C, but nowadays new techniques are available to produce asphalt at lower temperatures. (See below).


To be able to provide the best performance to different applications, a large variety of asphalt mixes can be used. Due to the different requirements (amount of traffic, amount of heavy vehicles, temperature, weather conditions, noise reduction requirements, etc.) the respective mix used needs to have an sufficient stiffness and resistance to deformation in order to cope with the applied pressure from vehicle wheels on the one hand, yet on the other hand, they need to have an adequate flexural strength to resist cracking caused by the varying pressures exerted on them. Moreover, good workability during application is essential in order to ensure that they can be fully compacted to achieve optimum durability.


In general the asphalt layers are paved on a bound or unbound road base layer. Starting at the road surface, the first layer is called the surface course. The second layer is mostly called the binder course. The lower layers are the base courses.


NAPA advances the asphalt pavement industry through leadership, stewardship, and member engagement to support sustainable transportation infrastructure that paves the way for thriving communities and commerce.


NAPA is the only national trade association that serves the asphalt pavement industry. Membership is available to any asphalt pavement mix producer, paving contractor, equipment manufacturer, material supplier, equipment distributor, engineering firm, or consultant.


The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) is the only trade association that exclusively represents the interests of the asphalt producer/contractor on the national level with Congress, government agencies, and other national trade and business organizations. NAPA supports an active research program designed to improve the quality of asphalt pavements and paving techniques used in the construction of roads, streets, highways, parking lots, airports, and environmental and recreational facilities. The association provides technical, educational, and marketing materials and information to its members; supplies product information to users and specifiers of paving materials; and offers educational opportunities. The association, which counts 1,100 companies as members, was founded in 1955.


Asphalt Fume Exposures During the Application of Hot Asphalt to RoofsDHHS (NIOSH) Publication No. 2003-112 (June 2003)This document represents a collaborative effort of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA), the Asphalt Institute (AI), and the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers, and Allied Workers (UURWAW) to reduce worker exposures to asphalt fumes during the application of hot asphalt to roofs. The document describes the application of hot asphalt to roofs, identifies steps in the process that may involve worker exposure to asphalt fumes, and identifies current engineering controls and work practices used to reduce exposures.


Asphalt Fume Exposures During the Manufacture of Asphalt Roofing ProductsDHHS (NIOSH) Publication No. 2001-127 (August 2001)This document represents the collaborative efforts of industry, labor, and government to protect the health of workers exposed to asphalt fumes during the manufacture of asphalt roofing products. Current engineering controls and work practices are presented for reducing worker exposures to asphalt fumes during the manufacturing process.


Hazard Review: Health Effects of Occupational Exposure to AsphaltDHHS (NIOSH) Publication No. 2001-110 (December 2000)This document is an evaluation of the health effects and other relevant data that have become available since publication of the 1977 NIOSH document . It includes an assessment of chemistry, health, and exposure data from studies in animals and humans exposed to raw asphalt, paving and roofing asphalt-fume condensates, and asphalt-based paints. Most important, the document serves as a basis for identifying future research to reduce occupational exposures to asphalt.
