Microsurfacing is a quick-traffic system that allows traffic to return shortly after placement. Normally,these systems are required to accept straight, rolling traffic on a 0.5 in (12.7 mm) thick surface within one hour after placement.

 

General description:

Microsurfacing is a quick-traffic system that allows traffic to return shortly after placement. Normally,these systems are required to accept straight, rolling traffic on a 0.5 in (12.7 mm) thick surface within one hour after placement.

Microsurfacing shall consist of a mixture of polymer-modified emulsified asphalt, mineral aggregate,

water, and additives, proportioned, mixed and uniformly spread over a properly prepared surface. The Design mix will be directed by Al Sherouk Chemcials Company and their Affliate laboratories. 

 

Properties : 

  • Microsurfacing should be capable of performing in variable thickness cross-sections such as ruts, scratch courses and milled surfaces.
  • After curing and initial traffic consolidation, it should resist further compaction. The Microsurfacing shall be applied as a homogeneous mat, adhere firmly to the prepared surface, and have a skidresistant texture throughout its service life.

 

Advantages:

  • Easy to apply without any heating thus economical in cost and labor.
  • Very fast and efficient asphalt preservation method
  • A low cost pavement method in rural areas.

 

Uses:

  • Roads that exhibit low severity cracking, raveling, oxidation, and wheel path rutting up to 1" deep are all candidates for this process. 
  • Considered a "wearing course", Microsurfacing and Slurry Seals not only improve the appearance of the existing pavement, but also improve skid numbers and extended roadway integrity.

 

Storage:

From 10 ºC to 60 ºC. in any dry place.
