    "You can get asphalt in a red colour. They use a dye to get it red."

    There are really only two different colour types red and black. There are also different types of tar that make it look decorative for example some asphalt can have a white chip with a black surface colour which really sets it off. Or there is just plain black or red.

    Thanks hope this helps,

    "Black is the easiest colour to buy and also the cheapest, any other colours will cost more and are harder to get hold of, in the past I have used, red, green and blue tarmac for customers."

    "You can have red tarmac, green tarmac, black is the cheapest option, red and green tarmac are special order so very expensive."

    "There is a red colour, but it is very expensive, cost could be prohibitive. Must remember it is only a dye that runs through it eventually over time and with tyres driving over it it will revert back to black. Hope this helps"
