We also supply UPM, "The Good Stuff," which has earned the reputation for being the best cold patch available. At Superior, we are dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality asphalt material to meet various paving and maintenance applications.
Hot Mix asphalt
Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) is a combination of approximately 95% stone, sand, or gravel bound together by 5% asphalt cement, a product of crude oil. Asphalt cement is heated and combined with the aggregate at a HMA facility. The Hot Mix Asphalt is loaded into trucks for transport to the paving site. The trucks dump the Hot Mix Asphalt into hoppers located at the front of a paver. The asphalt is placed and compacted using a heavy roller, which is driven over the asphalt. Traffic is generally permitted on the pavement as soon as it is properly compacted and cooled.
winter hot mix asphalt
Our top of the line Hot Mix Asphalt is available year round. During the summer months, we collect and store millings and any unused quantities of our specially formulated Hot Mix Asphalt from each job site. During the winter months we recycle this material to make a one of a kind, Hot Mix Asphalt which we make available to our customers as a pothole repair alternative to cold patch. If you have a pothole at least two inches deep and dry, our Winter Hot Mix will hold longer than any cold patch option available on the market.
UPM Permanent Pavement Repair Materials is a cold patch asphalt mix that can be used by municipalities, contractors and business owners to fill potholes and repair roads. Cold patch asphalt is a preferred method for patching potholes today because it’s easy to use and doesn’t require any heavy machinery. In fact, all you need is a shovel and a tamping tool. Another benefit of our cold mix asphalt patch is that it can be used year round on highways, roads, driveways, and more. Winter, spring, summer, and fall – UPM Cold Asphalt Repair Material keeps on working and stays workable!
