Tarmacadam consists of tar and crushed stone and naturally is a dark coloured, bituminous material that can be laid on almost any surface with the right preparation.
When compressed the stone aggregate is bonded by the tar giving the look and finish of a long lasting and highly durable tarmacadam surface.
The tarmacadam compound is laid while hot and viscous, levelled and compacted, and then allowed to cool so that it binds to form a solid, hard-wearing surface.
Wherever possible, tarmacadam driveways should be laid using a paving machine as this ensures the best compression and therefore finish. Sometimes it is not possible to use a machine in areas such as on small garden paths. Here your contractor will use alternative methods.
Colours available: black or red.
Tarmac - durable, cost-effective and laid without fuss.
Cost-effective – less construction time and fewer materials so reduced cost.
A more sustainable option through thinner pavement design.
Can avoid the need for full depth reconstruction – not an option with block as it needs a full depth bedding layer.
Long-lasting, durable, and economic alternative to concrete products and blocks.
Resilient to deformation in poorly designed heavily trafficked areas.
For residential and lightly trafficked areas tarmac is a durable coloured alternative to traditional asphalt. It is a direct alternative for block paving systems.
