The Process we Use for Asphalt Stamping
We start with hot asphalt or heat asphalt using infrared reciprocating heater and we then press woven steel templates into the warm asphalt using a plate compactor to create the imprint.
Applying stamped asphalt is faster, easier and less labor intensive to install than other decorative pattern paving surfaces. Plus, it can be installed on existing asphalt in good condition to save on pavement removal costs. Stamped asphalt provides an alternative to expensive products without compromising aesthetic quality or durability. The stamped asphalt process can create realistic-looking brick, slate, stone or other design effects directly on an asphalt surface.
Stamped Asphalt Key Benefits versus Brick Pavers and Stamped Concrete
Asphalt has a continuous surface which inhibits weed growth, erosion, shifting problems associated with freeze, thaw and vehicle movement. The installation of decorative stamped asphalt is also much quicker and less labor intensive than hand laid brick. This results in a drastically lower cost. Also, because it is still an asphalt surface, it benefits from a greater durability over individual bricks.
