Understanding Total Asphalt’s Products and Services

A two-coat seal refers to two (2) passes over a surface with Emulsion or Bitumen and spreading two separate sizes of aggregate/stone onto the product.

Moreover, we have fully equipped vehicles to carry out an extensive range of asphalt and bitumen spraying. Our fleet currently consists of:

How Does Asphalt Paving Work?

Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) is a combination of approximately 95% stone, sand, or aggregate/gravel bound together by asphalt cement. It is heated aggregate, combined and mixed with the aggregate at around 160 degrees C at a batching facility. The mix is then loaded into trucks for transport to the paving site. The trucks dump the mixture into hoppers located at the front of the paving machines. 

The asphalt is spread at predetermined heights and widths by paver/screed and then compacted using a heavy-duty industrial roller driven over the newly laid asphalt. Traffic is generally permitted on the pavement as soon as the pavement has cooled.

What Makes Total Asphalt Different From Other Asphalt Companies

We have the required equipment and specialists to overlook spray applications compliant with the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia (IPEWA) and Australian Asphalt Pavement Association (AAPA) specifications. We can lay up to 300 tonnes of asphalt per day, depending on the configuration of the job.

Moreover, Total Asphalt is also a supplier under WALGA (Western Australian Local Government Association). Our products comply with the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia (IPEWA) and Australian Asphalt Pavement Association (AAPA) specifications.
