Production of asphalt

Willemen Infra has five asphalt production plants in Flanders: Ghent, Bruges, Schoten, Doel and Lummen. An asphalt mixing installation can be seen as a factory with modern equipment, where the entire production process takes place under controlled conditions, managed and monitored by computers and experienced operators. All of our asphalt plants produce the most common mixtures and also have the possibility of producing all sorts of special and exceptional compositions.


Drainphalt is an innovative asphalt specially made for paving car parks, driveways, and roadways around buildings. Because the asphalt pavement is water-permeable, the construction of buffers and drainage is unnecessary. The rainwater is conducted through the asphalt itself, so that it gradually seeps into the groundwater. This makes Drainphalt the perfect solution for a well-known environmental problem: 14% of all surfaces in Belgium are paved but not water-permeable, which means that our continuous asphalting of Belgium is reducing our groundwater level. www.drainphalt.be

processing

Asphalt

The application of a layer of asphalt on sand, a foundation or already applied road surface is done using a paving machine. In the case of very small works or at locations difficult to access with the machine, asphalt is laid manually. Immediately after application, road rollers ensure optimum compaction of the asphalt. When the asphalt has cooled, it can be used for traffic.

Base

The base is a surface treatment (protective layer) consisting of one or more layers of crushed stone on a hardened surface. A distinction is made between a single-layer base, single-layer base with double gravel layer, and double-layer base.

poured asphalt

Poured asphalt is a material that is extremely well suited among others to municipal and urban infrastructure work. Possible additional costs in installation are amply offset by its durability and advantages during execution. Poured asphalt certainly has advantages here due to its properties, its possibilities for colouring and its ability to be combined with other natural materials. Much expertise and experience with the product on the part of the processor is required to ensure the proper processing and application of poured asphalt.
