Exceptional Quality Source Material
This material is produced to specific physical property specifications. Pattison’s quarries feature a variety of Ordovician Dolomitic Limestone ledges that yield materials that meet our customer’s individual requirements. TYPE A ASPHALT MATERIAL is sourced from durable ledges that have minimal deleterious material inclusion. This material outperforms materials from non-Ordovician quarries on freeze thaw, abrasion, specific gravity and absorption tests. It’s low absorption properties make it the ideal asphalt aggregate as it reduces the mount of petroleum oil required. See what wikipedia has to say.
