What is Pavement Milling?

Are there roads or parking lots nearby your home or office with large portions of asphalt missing all of a sudden? You know they are not from natural occurrences because they are uniform in nature, displaying evident signs of man-made work. So what is the city doing to these streets and parking lots? Well, they are likely replacing them, which should be great news to you since usually only problematic pavements are replaced on such a large scale. What you are witnessing is a common road replacement technique called pavement milling.

Also known as “cold planing”, pavement milling is a common road replacement practice used in the paving industry. It is the process of removing the surface of old asphalt pavement, giving room for new asphalt to be laid. There are two primary reasons why pavement milling is used; either the road or lot needs to be leveled out, or it has extensive damage that needs to be repaired. It can also be used to make rumble strips on new or preexisting roads.


To mill pavements, professional pavers use a large machine rightfully called a milling machine, or cold planer. They are designed with a large rotating drum with sharp cutters on the inside that removes and grinds the surface asphalt. As the surface is being milled, the drum takes in the uprooted debris and sends it through to a conveyor belt that usually leads to a transferable container. Asphalt is 100% recyclable, and is often kept for re-purposing. The drum works with such intensity, that water must be used on it to control heat production and rising temperatures.


A more sophisticated and intensive version of pavement milling is micro-milling. Micro-milling also uses a milling machine with a rotating drum, but the drum is more specialized and contains more cutting teeth compared to a standard milling machine. The cutting teeth are also closer together, rendering a smoother surface for new asphalt to be laid. With standard milling, there are ridges left in the surface. Micro-milling is not always a conducive option for pavements since it can only be done at shallow depths, dissimilar to standard road milling.

Common Asphalt Concrete Mixture Formulations

The term “asphalt concrete” refers to a composite material used to pave roads, streets, parking lots, and airports. In the states, it is also known as blacktop, pavement, or simply, asphalt; but in Great Britain and parts of Europe, it is known as tarmac or bitumen macadam. Asphalt concrete (AC) mostly consists of mineral aggregates that are bound by liquid asphalt and laid and compacted in layers. The abbreviation “AC” generally stands for asphalt concrete, but can also signify “asphalt content” or “asphalt cement” in regards to the liquid asphalt portion of the material. And in the engineering and construction industries, AC is commonly referred to as asphaltic concrete or bituminous asphalt concrete.

Asphalt and Aggregate Mixes

There are many methods to mixing asphalt and aggregate materials. Depending on its application, examples of such mixes include hot asphalt concrete, warm mix asphalt concrete, cold mix asphalt concrete, cut-back asphalt concrete, mastic asphalt concrete, and natural asphalt concrete. Take a look below for a brief overview of each mixture formulation for asphalt and aggregate materials.

Hot Asphalt Concrete (HMCA) – Asphalt binder is heated to decrease viscosity, and prior to mixture, the aggregate is dried to remove any moisture. Depending on the type of asphalt used (either polymer-modified or virgin), mixing temperatures range between 300 and 330 degrees Fahrenheit (150-166 &;C). This mixture is used most often for high-traffic pavement such as interstates, racetracks, airfield landing strips, and more. But it is also used as an environmental liner for reservoirs, ponds, and landfills.

Warm Asphalt Concrete (WMA) – It is produced by adding certain materials to the asphalt binder prior to mixing, such as waxes, asphalt emulsions, zeolites, and occasionally water. This formulation provides lower laying and mixing temperatures. This results in reduced fossil fuel consumption, which in turn releases less vapors, aerosols, and carbon dioxide.

Cold Asphalt Concrete – It is produced by emulsifying asphalt in a mixture of cleanser and water prior to mixing. This makes the mixture less viscous and easier to manipulate. It is commonly used to patch holes and cracks on low-traffic pavements.

Cut-Back Asphalt Concrete – Asphalt binder is dissolved in kerosene (or some other light version of petroleum) prior to mixing. Just like cold asphalt concrete, this makes the mixture less viscous and easier to work with. With the growing concerns of VOC’s, cut-back AC has been mostly replaced by asphalt emulsions.

Mastic Asphalt Concrete – Also called “sheet asphalt”, is produced by heating oxidized, hard-grade, blown bitumen in a mixer until thick. Then aggregate mix is added to it.

Natural Asphalt Concrete – Produced from bituminous rock. Bituminous rock is found only in certain parts of the world where the surface of porous sedimentary rock has been permeated with upwelling bitumen.
