Quality: A Top Priority At Blue Diamond Materials
Our hot mix asphalt manufacturing facilities operate in Irwindale, South Gate, Inglewood, Sun Valley and Victorville. All of our plants have received the NAPA Diamond Achievement for Quality. We also have an extensive quality control and material design lab that is fully accredited by AASHTO and CalTrans Certified.
Each plant has a technician and laboratory facilities to ensure that every ton of material produced meets the quality specification set forth by our customers.
At Blue Diamond Materials, we are extremely conscious of our impact on the environment. We recycle thousands of tons of asphalt pavement each year saving valuable materials from landfills, and conserving virgin aggregates. This practice reuses the petroleum faction of our product by reusing the "glue" as new binder material from the originally product. This direct reuse reduces the demand for oil imports and produces a product equally to, and in some ways superior to 100% virgin asphalt pavement.
We've also pioneered the uses of variable frequency drive motors on asphalt plants, which reduces our electrical demand and consumption.
Blue Diamond Materials is leading the efforts to introduce EcoMat® Warm Mix Asphalt technology to the Los Angeles Basin and surrounding areas. This process reduces the energy needed to heat asphalt mixes, reduces emissions at both the plant and the jobsite, and ultimately increases the performance of pavement.
