Coloured Asphalt Surfaces

The coloured asphalt surfaces are commonly installed for use on roads, car parks, driveways, sports courts and many other outdoor landscaping. Asphalt surfacing is popular because of its durability and long life expectancy for heavy use with vehicles on roads and in car parks. The specification is made up of stone aggregate mixed with a bitumen binder, a by-product of the oil refining industry.

Colour asphalt surfacing can come in many different colours depending on the design of the surface in question, the colours can be added by either using stone aggregate of a certain colour or adding a pigment to the mixture. Brightly coloured tarmacadam is often used for safety purposes as well as to produce a good looking design, for example to outline bus and cycle lanes, disabled access routes and pedestrian walkways. Many outdoor sports courts will be surfaced in macadam and then be painted with a coloured anti slip coating http://www.colouredtarmac.co.uk/antislip-paint/ in POSTCODE] which both adds to the appearance and the playing qualities. We offer numerous options for colours and designs with slip resistant sports paint so please contact us to discuss this in more detail and speak about the costs.

What is Coloured Asphalt?

Coloured asphalt is a macadam surface which has pre coated colour chippings rolled with hot macadam. This type of surfacing is permeable which means water can drain through easily so the surface will not get flooded and unsafe in heavy rainfall. The colour pigmented macadam is a decorative surface type which may be used for many different facilities with very little maintenance needed.

Another name for the coloured surfacing is tinted tarmacadam, and this specification can often be utilised for driveways, children’s playgrounds http://www.colouredtarmacadam.co.uk/tarmac-playground/ and minor roads around housing estates. Different colours can be used to create a unique and eye catching design for a range of landscaping purposes. This can be done for both domestic areas, schools, universities and public attractions to create decorative and hard wearing outdoor surfaces.

Colourful Outdoor Surfacing

There are a lot of different uses for colourful outdoor surfacing which can help to improve the safety of roadways, define routes and paths, and improve the appearance of recreational areas. The specification is made by pre-coating the stones with a coloured pigment and then laying out the mixture with hot rolled tarmacadam. This method creates a porous surface which is great for urban areas as it absorbs any water to avoid flooding. Once installed the colour pigmented macadam specification is very hard wearing and can withstand a lot of use from cars on roads or in car parks and driveways.
