Chipseal (tar and chip)
Chipseal (also known ast tar and chip or chip and tar) is a pavement surface treatment that combines one or more layers of asphalt with one or more layers of fine aggregate. Chipseal contractors typically use this process on rural roads and residential driveways , Road contractors refer to this as ‘tar and chip’.
Chipseal as a new construction
Chipseal is a great choice when considering what type of pavement surface you want for your new construction not only because it is cost effective (less than half the price of asphalt) but because it is a highly durable surface that can be used maintenace free for over 15 years. Chipseal also delivers a rustic look that can come in a variety of colors depending on what type of aggregate is used.
Chipseal over existing asphalt
Chipseal is a great alternative to sealcoating or costly asphalt overlays. When an existing pavement is chipsealed it eliminates the need for further asphalt maintenence programs such as crack filling, sealcoating and patching.
1.The first step in construction a chipseal wearing course is distributing an even layer of HFRS tar.
2.Then embedding a layer of aggregate into the HFRS.
3.The aggreged is evenly distributed over the seal spray.
4.Then rolled into a smooth pavement surface.
