Micro-surfacing is in the same family as another asphalt emulsion product known as slurry seal. Slurry seal was developed in the 1930s and improved with technological developments in the 1960s. Slurry seal is a more true "sealer" for asphalt pavements. It has a higher asphalt content design and is not used on thick applications.

Benefits of Slurry Seal are:

  • Minimize Oxidation
  • Improve Aesthetics
  • Correct Raveling and Weathering
  • Provide Pavement Skid Resistance
  • Relieve Water Infiltration
