|Bond Coat/Tack Coat - Trackless
|A trackless bond or tack coat is an application of emulsion or asphalt binder with trackless properties that is sprayed onto the roadway surface immediately prior to a paving operation. The trackless properties ensure the bonding material stays where it is needed, resisting being picked up by tires, paving equipment and haul trucks and tracked across the job site. Adjacent structures and striping are protected for tracking associated with conventional materials.
|BC-1HT, eTac (NT-HRE)
|Tack Coat - Conventional
|A tack or bond coat is an application of emulsion or asphalt binder that is sprayed onto the roadway surface immediately prior to a paving operation. The adhesion of multiple lifts of pavement provides for maximum structural coefficient and ensures the safety and longevity of the pavement structure.
|SS-1, SS-1H, MS-2
|Chip Seal - Conventional
|A spray-applied application of asphalt emulsion or binder followed by an application of a single layer of aggregate used to provide friction, seal cracks less than ¼ inches wide and reduce the intrusion of water into roadway structures. Typically used on more rural routes with low-to-moderate ADTs. Life extensions of 5-7 years are typical.
|Chip Seal - Modified
|A wearing course of spray-applied polymer modified asphalt emulsion or binder followed by an application of a single layer of aggregate used to provide friction, seal cracks less than ¼ inches wide and preserve roadways. The modification provides resistance to higher ADT routes and provides for a relatively quick return to traffic. Life extensions of 6-7 years are seen.
|Cold Mix - Conventional
|Mixture of cutback asphalt or asphalt emulsion and aggregate, combined through a pugmill or asphalt plant and typically stored in a stockpile for use as temporary patching.
|Fog Seal - Conventional
|A preservation technique that involves spraying a diluted asphalt emulsion onto an asphalt surface. Used to enhance aggregate retention and seal hairline cracks. Life extensions of 1-2 years are typical.
|SS-1, SS-1H, MS-2
|Fog Seal - High-Performance
|A light application of emulsion sprayed on the roadway surface, providing a quick return-to-traffic time and improved aggregate retention with trackless properties. Typical uses are over new chip seals, rejuvenating scrub seals and existing pavement surfaces — resulting in increased service life of 2-4 years.
|Prime Coat - Conventional
|An application of emulsion or asphalt binder to a soil base in preparation for the wearing course. Typical use is prior to a chip seal or hot mixed asphalt application; the prime provides protection of the soil against rainfall in staged construction and serves as a bond promoter for the eventual surface. Prime coats are also used as a curing seal for cement-treated bases.
