Federal Asphalt offers a wide selection of asphalt based emulsions and cutbacks for a variety of market applications. Asphalt products may be custom formulated, for any industrial application. Federal Asphalt offers a full range of asphalt emulsions and polymer modified asphalt emulsions for surface treatments. Federal Asphalt produces specialty products used in a variety of industrial applications. Working closely with our customers the products are tailored for the specific applications. Generally, emulsions appear as a thick brown liquid when initially applied. When the asphalt cement starts to adhere to the surrounding material (aggregate, existing surface, sub-grade, etc.) the colour changes from brown to black and the emulsion is said to have “broken”. As water begins to evaporate, the emulsion begins to behave more and more like pure asphalt cement. Once all the water has evaporated, the emulsion is said to have “set”. The time required to break and set depends upon the type of emulsion, the application rate, the temperature of the surface onto which it is applied and environmental conditions. Under most circumstances, an emulsion will set in about 1 to 2 hours
AGGREGATES USED IN TAR AND CHIP ROAD CONSTRUCTION
A minus 16 mm (5/8″) to 4.75 mm (3/16″) screened material that is a proper blend of 16mm (5/8″) Clear and 7 mm (¼”) Clear products. When this material is blended with asphalt emulsion it produces a heartier top wearing course of Asphalt for roads and parking lots.
A minus 25mm (1″) to 5mm (3/16″) screened material that is a proper blend of 19mm (3/4″) Clear, 13mm (1/2″) Clear and 7mm (1/4″) Clear products. When this material is blended with asphalt emulsion it produces a base course of Asphalt for roads and parking lots.
A minus 16mm (5/8″)” to 5mm (3/16″) screened material that is a proper blend of 16mm (5/8″) and 5mm (3/16″) clear products. When this material is blended with asphalt emulsion it produces either a top or base course of asphalt for roads and parking lots.
Also known as stone dust or Screening, this material is a minus 7 mm (1/4”) product that is useful in a top coat on asphalt or tar and chip roads
7mm (1/4") CLEAR STONE
Limestone screening is a by-product of the crushing process and is made up of fine stone chips to stone dust. Like the crusher run it will produce a hard smooth surface but can retain a substantial amount of water if the area is not well packed or drained. Typically use as the last layer in interlocking paving stone applications. It fills in any imperfections and voids in the base and aids in levelling process.
Concrete sand is used in conjunction with cement and coarse aggregate in the manufacturing of high quality concrete mixes. It can be used for pipe bedding, traction sand, block sand and general purpose sand.
Brick sand is a fine sand when mixed with mortar cement, is used for brick and block laying. Other uses are for swimming pool liners, children's play areas and a levelling base for interlocking and flag stone.
River rock is a rounded stone of varying sizes used as a ground cover, around the edges of walkways, or to add to a pond or waterfall.
Used extensively for creating hard packed surfaces. The wide range of gradation within the product allows it to be vibrated and compacted to a hard surface to resist vertical movement from above. While it still allows water to pass through it at a substantially slower rate it will maintains its integrity. This product is typically used as the base of all road & driveway construction, under concrete slabs, and in open stone roadways and parking lots.
3/4 INCH CRUSHER RUN
3/4 inch clear gravel is a washed product that is used as a base only when compaction is not possible. They are used extensively for drainage applications and in the manufacturing of Cement and Asphalt products. The many voids around the stones allow water to flow through freely through it. The same voids can be filled with different gradation
3/4 INCH CLEAR
3/8 inch pea gravel is a round gravel free of any sand or foreign material. It is primarily used for drainage purposes, but many people use it in walk ways to keep dust and stone particles down or as a decorative product in landscaping and some concrete products. This aggregate does not compact well and produces a soft surface.
