Asphalt refers to a semi-solid form of petroleum that is sticky, black, and highly viscous in nature. It is classified as a pitch. It may be found in natural deposits, like the Pitch Lake, or may be obtained as a refined product. It is most widely used for road construction, where it is used as a binder to create asphalt concrete upon its combination with aggregate particles. Its other significant application involves its use in the production of bituminous waterproofing products, like roofing felt, flat roofs sealant, etc.
