What Is Tarmac?

You will have seen tarmac before many many times. It is extremely recognisable. Every day you will walk over it, drive over it and park your car on it. Businesses love this substance as it can be used on everything from tarmac driveways, pathways, car parks, roads and pavements.

Its original name is Tarmacadam. This  a bituminous material which is also referred to as Asphalt. It is long lasting which makes it an excellent investment, it can last from twelve years, to anywhere up to thirty-five with the right care and attention.  RM Kennedy & Sons explain that tarmac “is comprised of tar and broken stone. A professional tarmac laying company will then mix and shape the substance, laying it and brushing it evenly. The mixture is then set with tarmac laying machinery such as a steam roller.”

Technology changes all of the time and so has athe art of road paving.  If you think about it, the UK has some of the best roads in the world, something that we should be proud of. Did you know that the earliest roads were made of loose gravel scattered over dirt? Tarmac is one of the earliest and also most successful ways of binding crushed gravel together in order to form a uniform, level surface.

We may not realise it but it is true that tarmac plays an important role in our daily activities. When we travel to work or school, or when we buy goods in a shop or via internet, tarmac roads are being used.If you are interested in finding out more about tarmac and the tarmac services that tarmac companies provide.
