MICROSURFACING

Microsurfacing is an essential tool for any pavement management program.

Advantages: Environmentally safe – 90% reduction in CO2 and energy consumption versus traditional Hot–Mix Asphalt. Life expectancy of ten years; No loss of curb reveal, does not alter drainage; Eliminates hydroplaning, increase skid resistance; Resistant to rutting and shoving; Applied with continuous load pavers to minimize traffic delays; Fills ruts up to 1.5" – special application available for profile correction of uneven and rutted surfaces.

Microsurfacing has been used on some of the heaviest traveled roadways in the country, including the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, Long Island Expressway and Interstate 285 in Atlanta, Georgia. Continuous load pavers utilize support units which bring materials to the job site and load the machine while working, thus maximizing production and minimizing transverse joints. These pavers can lay three miles per day with no long traffic delays.
Microsurfacing is a cold mix paving system formulated to remedy a broad range of problems on today's streets, highways and bridges. Advancements in materials and technology have made this one of the most cost effective road resurfacing products available. All ingredients must pass stringent laboratory tests to conform exactly to the engineered mix design and job mix formula.

Microsurfacing creates a new, stable surface that is resistant to rutting and shoving. Because Microsurfacing can be applied effectively at an average thickness of 3/8", more area per ton of mix is covered, resulting in cost effective road resurfacing. Microsurfacing provides texture corrections where the road surface is too rough or too smooth, eliminating hydroplaning and increasing skid resistance. Ruts up to 1.5" can be filled with Microsurfacing without milling.
