SEALCOATING

The process begins with a thorough cleaning of the roadway surface utilizing high- speed air blowers and/or mechanical sweepers. Pavement cracks ¼ inch wide or larger are then filled with a hot-applied rubberized crack sealer. Oil and polymers are heated and applied to the surface from a distributor tank. Immediately following the oil application, aggregate is evenly placed using a chip spreader. A pneumatic roller is used to help compact the aggregate in place. After curing, loose stones are swept from the pavement surface. The final step is the application of an asphalt emulsion known as “fog seal”. Fog sealing provides an attractive appearance while improving surface cohesion.
