The improved workability improves mix cohesion and aids compaction. Cooling Because of WMA's lower mixing and compaction temperatures, there is less difference between the WMA and the ambient and road temperatures. So WMA takes longer to cool from mixing to compaction temperature than HMA, providing a longer compaction window.

ASPHALT COMPACTION Compaction of asphalt while it remains workable is a vital requirement for placement of all hot mix asphalt. Compaction should not commence unless the mix has sufficient cohesion to support rollers and avoid excessive displacement. Generally this relates to a minimum binder viscosity of about 0.25 Pa.s.

The compaction process causes the asphalt-concrete mix to be compressed and its volume reduced. As the density of the hot-mix asphalt material increases, the air-void content of the mix decreases (they are inversely proportional to each other). Properly designed, a HMA mix should have an air-void content in the range of 3% to 5%.

Jan 15,  · When it arrives at the job site, hot-mix asphalt is normally between 275 and 300 degrees Fahrenheit. For the initial rolling, the temperature of the mix needs to be between 220 and 290 degrees Fahrenheit. If the mix temperature falls below approximately 185 degrees Fahrenheit before the final compaction, it will be too stiff to compact properly.
