Made for the Right Conditions
Performance Graded Asphalts are manufactured to adapt to a range of temperatures in degrees Celsius. Associated Asphalt supplies PG liquid asphalts in several grades ranging from low temperatures of -28 degrees Celsius to high temperatures exceeding 88 degrees Celsius. Each grade is numbered to indicate the range of ideal temperature for the setting and extended use of each asphalt.
Associated Asphalt works to provide a wide range of performance grade asphalt so that our customers are able to confidently utilize our products for their projects. These asphalts perform at specific temperatures to resist rutting, thermal cracking, fatigue damage, and stripping. Performance Grade Asphalts are the economical choice for pavement repair.
