Extend the Pavement Life-cycle with Micro-Surfacing

“Micro-surfacing is a combination of emulsion, aggregates, water, and additives. These elements are mixed and then applied at ambient temperature to the existing asphalt. The thickness of the micro-surfacing application is approximately 3/8 of an inch, or equal to the size of the aggregate that is used in the mix design. 

Micro-surfacing is typically applied in lifts which consists of several coats or passes. It can also be used to fill ruts of up to 2 inches. Micro-surfacing mix is sometimes referred to as a polymer-modified slurry seal.”
