Slurry Seals & Micro-Surfacing
“Micro-surfacing has proven effective in filling ruts, reducing the amount of original rutting by 40%, and substantially increasing the friction characteristics of the pavement.” – Transportation Research Record No. 1392
Effective Pavement Preservation
Slurry Seal is a mixture of fine dense-graded aggregate, asphalt emulsion, water, and mineral fillers. The components are mixed and placed on the road using a single machine. Slurry seals are effective preventive maintenance applications that seal and waterproof the surface while correcting minor defects and improving skid resistance and appearance. The thin surface is an excellent choice for city streets and airports. Micro-surfacing is a high-performance slurry seal, formulated with polymers and chemistry for a very quick cure and traffic return, as well as durability on high traffic pavements. Since micro-surfacing cures quickly, it can be placed thicker than slurry seals and used to fill ruts and for minor reprofiling. These seals can be placed on both asphalt and concrete pavements.
Type I uses a fine aggregate and is designed for parking lots and taxiways.
Type II, the most commonly used type, uses a coarser aggregate and can be used for all applications including arterial roads, residential areas and highways.
Type III uses the coarsest aggregate and is used on freeways, high speed roads, industrial applications and runways.
