How-to-Guide for Asphalt Pavement Compaction

Asphalt concrete mixtures cool quickly so it’s important to compact while the mix is hot. Typically, asphalt comes out of the plant at about 300° F. At that temperature, it is relatively soft and is readily compacted. As it cools, it firms up and compaction becomes increasingly difficult.
