The primary use of asphalt is creating pavement for roadbuilding. 

Asphalt pavement consists of a highly controlled mixture of liquid asphalt cement and aggregate that is placed and compacted to create a smooth surface designed to facilitate vehicular and pedestrian transportation. The manufacture of asphalt pavement requires the combination of a number of aggregates, sand, and a filler (such as baghouse fines), in the correct proportions, which is then heated and finally coated with a liquid asphalt binder.  Equipment for the production of asphalt pavement, including aggregate production, asphalt mixing, and paving equipment has been a core industry for ASTEC from the beginning.
