Our production of asphalt paving materials is tested and monitored by our own Iowa Department of Transportation certified employees and laboratory equipped with the latest in asphalt testing technology. All the materials used in the production of the HMA are sampled and tested in accordance with the Iowa Department of Transportation Specifications (IDOT). During production and placement of the HMA, density samples are taken and tested in our laboratory to ensure the quality of our product, according to our quality control program. The sampling and testing is performed by IDOT certified lab technicians. Many of the samples are taken to an independent laboratory to further verify our results. During placement of the HMA, a density machine is used to monitor the compaction and to aid in achieving the desired density.
