TARMAC DRIVEWAY INSTALLERS FOR SOUTHEND ON SEA, ESSEX
Our driveway installers in Southend often get asked what are the different types of tarmac and why is there so many choices, lets look at some of the most common options.
Hot Rolled Asphalt
Hot Rolled Asphalt (HRA) is one of the more traditional styled type of laying a driveway. Bonded using a bitumen and mixed with a fine aggregate. The finish can vary depending on the size of chip chosen with the most popular being the 6-10mm hot rolled asphalt finish.
Stone Mastic Asphalt
Stone Mastic Asphalt or more commonly referred to as SMA tarmac, has the benefit of being 100% recyclable. Used mostly on driveways and low traffic areas as it is a much finer finish bordering nearly on a sand aggregate which is bonded with bitumen. This choice is our most popular for customers.
This type of surfacing is most popular on private roadways, farms or on larger driveways that will be seeing regular traffic from heavy goods vehicles. Its process is done using 2 to 3 layers with a base course first.
This base course is designed to carry the brunt of the weight so it is normally very coarse. It is further finished with a binder course and / or wearing course. For a large driveway, we would put down the wearing course as the finishing course at a 10mm mix.
