A Slurry Seal is a cold, mixed asphalt slurry. It consists of emulsified asphalt, graded fine aggregate and additives. It is a hard wearing surfacing for pavement preservation.
Slurry Seals treat aged and raveled pavements by filling minor cracks, replacing lost surface aggregate, restoring skid resistance and restoring aesthetic appeal. It may be used on freeways, residential streets, parking lots and any area that needs the pavement to be preserved.
Slurry Seals come in three types. Aggregate sizes give different surface textures.
Different types of aggregate will give lighter or darker results.
Slurry is made in specially designed truck-mounted equipment. This equipment carries unmixed materials which are blended together in a continuous flow pugmill which insures a smooth, consistently uniform mixture. Slurry is made at the project site. Mixing and spreading are accomplished in one continuous operation. The surface may be reopened to travel within a few hours.
Slurry Seal extends the life of the existing pavement by protecting it from oxidation and deterioration. This process creates an even-textured surface.
