How COLD do you keep WARM?

Cold season paving is upon us or even well underway depending on where you live. Which brings me to ask: how COLD do you keep WARM? A big benefit of Evotherm is extending the paving season. Workability is maintained and target compaction densities are achieved when the cold makes paving with traditional hot mix asphalt a losing battle.

What is the coldest ambient air temperature you have started paving? We will be sharing our cold weather paving stories from jobs going on this week and we want to know your low-temp record! Those who submit comments of lowest 5 ambient air temperatures will receive a Work Thermos to help them stay warm on the job. So click the comment button to share how cold you have stayed warm with Evotherm!

On December 9th 2010 we utilized Evotherm 3G M1 when the temperature was 19F when we started paving. The air lines on our plant froze but our Evotherm didn't!

Last December we paved when the temperature was 23F using a Superpave surface mix and Evotherm 3G M1. We covered the Evotherm 3G M1 tote with a tarp but did not have a heater on it and it pumped easily.
