A light application of diluted emulsion sprayed on an existing asphalt surface to enrich aging, weathered surfaces and reduce raveling. Fog seals are also used to reduce chip loss on chip seals and as a color coating.
Emulsion is applied to the roadway or surface without any cover material.
5 Issues our fog seal can correct
eFog is a Rejuvenating Fog Seal that can correct more severe distresses than
a conventional Fog Seal. It can provide open graded friction courses with a
2-3 year lifecycle extension without reducing permeability, and offers equally
effective results on worn chip seal pavements. In addition to its use as a
rejuvenating fog seal, eFog can be used as bond coat or cold pour crack filler.
- eFog can correct roadways and shoulders exhibiting:
- Cracks up to 1/8”
- Asphalt lean mixtures
Fog Seal Features
eFog is ideal for use on oxidized or raveled pavements. It replaces light end
fractions lost from the asphalt mix during manufacture, storage, placement
or service. Its polymer-modified asphalt base provides a denser film thickness
for increased durability and resistance to tracking. As a hybrid emulsion,
it provides the benefits of both a rejuvenator and a conventional asphalt
emulsion product. Once eFog has cured, traffic can typically return to the
pavement within 1.5 hours. If a very quick return to traffic is necessary, an
application of 2-4 lbs/yd2
of sand can be applied.

Conventional Fog Seal is a light application of diluted asphalt emulsion that
is spray applied to an existing asphalt surface, protecting it against traffic
and the environment. Fog Seal is applied to roadways that have a good base
structure, but exhibit the earliest signs of distress. Although it is a first-sign-ofdeterioration application, its effectiveness improves with repeat applications.
As a truly preventive maintenance treatment, it reinforces what’s already in
place and increases safety by delineating driving lanes.
