Making Us A Better Neighbor
Kokosing Materials is capable of producing Warm Mix asphalt at all of our plant locations. Warm mix asphalt is the generic term for a variety of technologies that allow the producers of hot mix asphalt material to lower the temperature at which the material is mixed and placed on the job. Reductions of 50 degrees Fahrenheit and higher have been documented. Such drastic reductions have the obvious benefits of cutting fuel consumption and decreasing the production of greenhouse gases. In addition, engineering benefits include better compaction on the job, the ability to haul asphalt mix for longer distances, and extending the paving season by being able to pave at lower temperatures.
This is just one more action KMI is doing to make us a better Company and neighbor.
