Technical Data Effect of MR on Asphalt Fumes

Effect of MR on Asphalt Fumes Importance Asphalt is typically produced and paved at 140-180°C and compaction rolling then occurs at around 80-120°C. Fumes from asphalt production and paving can contain harmful chemicals. Minimising the exposure of asphalt workers to fumes can only improve their comfort and safety.
