|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.
|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.
|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.
|Chip Seal - Premium
|A polymer modified chip seal system designed for maximum aggregate adhesion and the shortest return-to-traffic time for the highest ADT routes. Life extensions of 6-7 years are expected.
|Full Depth Reclamation
|FDR is a complete rehabilitation technique addressing all major distresses throughout the pavement structure and into the base. All roadway materials are combined in-situ and compacted to form an improved base. This is followed by the appropriate wearing course of hot mix asphalt installed to provide the required structural coefficient.
|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.
|Micro Surfacing - Conventional
|Surface treatment/wearing course with standard 3% polymer modification of the asphalt base. Addresses loss of friction, oxidation rutting and minor reprofiling. Can be used on all roadway types and all traffic levels, providing 6-8 years of life extension.
|Slurry Seal - Modified
|Wearing course follows conventional slurry seal design and application techniques with added polymer modification of the asphalt base, typically around 1.5%. Addresses loss of friction, raveling and oxidation with a life extension of 4-6 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.
