Type 1, 2 & 3 Slurry Seals
Slurry seals are considered one of the most adaptable of the pavement surfacing treatment systems, allocating minimal cost, immediate usability, and appealing in value, while improving minor deficiencies on the surface and preventing the further decline of the pavement. When applied at the right time, slurry seal can help prolong the life of the asphalt pavement surface and save costs by preventing small deficiencies from turning into larger more apparent problems that would demand large costs in the immediate future.
Advantages of Slurry Seal
Slurry seal is relatively inexpensive to install and highly cost-efficient when compared to patching, overlaying or removing and replacing with asphalt or concrete pavements.
Apparent & Preventative Maintenance
Numerous defects with old pavement such as cracking, separating, loss of profile in the aggregates leaving a rough surface with potential trip hazards, can be remedied with the proper application of slurry seal. Resurfacing with road slurry can also provide a new multi-weather surface that help stand the test of time. It offers a skid resistant, waterproofed surface all while improving the safety and appearance of your pavement.
Several additives can modify slurry seal, fitting it to the precise necessities of the pavement surface and weather conditions. CW can work with you to produce the appropriate mix design for your particular conditions.
Slurry seal drys at a faster rate than most other pavements solutions, allowing the pavement to be open for foot and or vehicle traffic in just hours after the application is complete. This is an appealing feature for many roads, highways, airports, and parking areas that cannot afford to be shut down.
A single coat application can enhance the “curb appeal” or aesthetics by unifying the pavement and adding a non-skid surface. These potentials translate to increased property value, consumer traffic, marketing potential and buyer’s assurance. A second coat application can add an even more structurally sound surface prolonging the pavements life further in time.
Sealcoat is applied to the pavement to protect it from the wear and tear caused by sunlight, oxidation, and the flows of water across the surface. It acts as a safeguard against excess leakage such as oil and gasoline from vehicles. Sealcoat revamps the pavement by providing a smoother, jet-black surface ideal for re-striping new lines and freshening up the area. When dealing with aged pavements, sealcoating can replace the oils and sands that were previous lost over time.
Advantages of Seal-coating
Seal coating are the most cost-efficient of the slurries. It is pennies on the dollar cheaper when compared to the amount needed to repair or replace damaged pavement.
Preventive maintenance plans are most common when dealing with sealcoats it drastically prolongs the life of your pavement, which equates to saving you money over the time. Resurfacing by sealcoating can also provide a new multi-weather surface that help stand the test of time. It offers a skid resistant, waterproofed surface all while improving the safety and appearance of your pavement.
Sealcoats normally last between 3-5 years, depending on the traffic, weather conditions and flows of water moving across the pavement. Sealcoats have a shorter life span than heavier-duty treatments like road slurry.
Seal coating drys at a faster rate than most other pavements solutions, allowing the pavement to be open for foot and or vehicle traffic in just hours after the application is complete. This is an appealing feature for many roads, highways, airports, and parking areas that cannot afford to be shut down.
Seal coating beautifies your pavement by providing a smoother and blacker surface, which translates to more “curb appeal” to potential customers thus growing your bottom line.
