Ark-LA-Tex Asphalt Mixture Design
There are three primary components of asphalt paving:
Aggregate – The largest component of asphalt pavements and can range from crushed stone or gravel to recycled materials such as recycled tires, crushed glass, or even sawdust.
Binder – A water-based liquid designed to help bind the aggregate particles together into a solid mass that will support heavy loads and provide structural integrity for pavement life. This layer also provides some resistance against abrasion which would otherwise cause damage on the surface of asphalt pavement.
Air – Asphalt pavements contain air voids (air pockets) within their mix so that they may expand under deformation caused by temperature changes or expansion and contraction due to changes in moisture content or weather conditions.
Parking lots are subject to oxidation, aging, tire scrubbing, and some brittleness not often seen on heavily traveled roads. Ark-La-Tex paving understands that asphalt mixtures should be higher in total liquid asphalt content than a similarly traveled roadway to prevent these problems from occurring in parking lots.
Our Formula for Best Performing Asphalt Parking Lot
Asphalt parking lots are designed to withstand high traffic volumes, heavy vehicle loads, and occasional rainfall. Several factors must be considered when designing an asphalt parking lot for the best possible performance. These include:
Design air voids at 3.5% to 4%
Total liquid asphalt binder that is slightly higher than roadway mixtures
Surface mixtures with finer gradations
Asphalt parking lots are an integral part of the overall facility. To ensure that owners and their customers get the best out of these lots, property owners should select a contractor with trained personnel and who has demonstrated high-quality workmanship on similar projects. Ark-LA-Tex have been serving Louisiana with excellent parking lot solutions for more than 30 years. With us, you can rest assured that you get nothing but the quality you deserve.
The Key to Stable Foundation
The subgrade is important because it helps support construction equipment. The subgrade is the foundation for the final pavement structure. During construction, heavy equipment can be used to proof-roll the area and check for any unsuitable or soft areas that need to be removed or repaired. If these areas are found, they can be improved by blending aggregates with soil or by chemical stabilization.
For projects that involve the removal and replacement of soil, topsoil, vegetation, or unsuitable materials, we remove all debris, topsoil, and vegetation and replace them with quality materials. We also replace fill materials with thin lifts (12 inches maximum) that have the proper moisture content and be compacted before placement of the next lift.
A properly prepared subgrade will not deflect excessively under the weight of a loaded truck. Before starting paving operations on our projects, we check for stability by checking your subgrade soils for moisture content and grade. If there is a layer of stone between your soil subgrade layer and asphalt pavement layer, we make sure to place an additional layer as well so that it compacts properly with other layers before paving begins.
Workmanship You Can Trust
It’s best to hire a paving contractor who knows every aspect of asphalt-paving materials. There is no substitute for experience in constructing quality asphalt pavements. At Ark-LA-Tex, you get a team of professional parking lot paving contractors who take responsibility for quality control on every project — from the quality of asphalt mixture to its finished surface.
