Cold mix asphalt is a type of asphalt that is made up of a mixture of hot and cold asphalt. It is often used in areas that are not able to use traditional hot mix asphalt, such as on rural roads. Cold mix asphalt is prepared by mixing a hot asphalt slurry with a cold one. This mixture creates a more consistent and durable product.
