What Is Crushed Asphalt?
Crushed asphalt is the recycled form of regular asphalt. Normal asphalt is the black, sticky component made from petroleum that is used in creating concrete. Usually, asphalt is used in paving roadways, parking lots, and other large, flat surfaces. Forms of asphalt have been used for thousands of years, and developments in technique and technology have only made its application in everyday construction easier.
