Asphalt or bitumen? What’s the difference?October 31 2017
Bitumen driveways and car parks are a common sight as you travel across Melbourne’s busy suburbs.
But what actually is bitumen? How does it differ from asphalt? And who can we turn to for answers?
While the words bitumen and asphalt are often used interchangeably by many people, specialists will tell you there is a difference. In simple terms, you can think of bitumen as the glue that binds asphalt together while asphalt is a combination of bitumen and other materials including particles of stone and sand.
If you’ve travelled across this great country, you’ll have driven over bitumen-sealed roads – which often have a two-coat seal of bitumen with aggregate cover – as well as smooth asphalt surfaces. And chances are you’ll have hit gravel roads too, leaving a cloud of dust in your wake.
