MICRO-SURFACING

Live Micro-Surfacing Mixing Machine


As our name implies, we specialize in micro-surfacing, a polymer-modified cold-application paving system developed in Europe in the 1970s. It is designed to set quickly and uses high-quality aggregates to provide a long-lasting wearing surface on good, strong pavements.

The full-width wearing surface is the most common application. It is often a double-course process adding about 3/8" thickness to the existing surface. It can also be applied in a single course on lower volume traffic areas. Either way, adjustments to manholes, inlets, etc. are not necessary. Different aggregate gradations can be used to affect surface texture and wearability.

Micro-surfacing can also be used to fill wheel-path ruts. A special rut-fill box is used to fill one rut at a time, up to about two inches in depth. This is a cost-effective alternative to expensive pavement milling and hotmix inlay. In most instances, pavement markings can be left undisturbed and years of service life added to what was an unsafe surface.
