Cutback Asphalt is a mixture of asphalt cement and petroleum solvents. The most common types are classified as slow cure and medium cure. Cutbacks have viscosities that are typically lower than that of neat asphalt. After a cutback is applied, a portion of the solvent will eventually evaporate leaving only the asphalt cement after it has cured. Their uses included dust control, pavement maintenance, construction (chip seal) and cold mix patching.
