Program Summary: Fiber reinforced chip seal provides an economical, cost effective solution for treating and preventing the recurrence of cracking in road or pavement surfaces. Coupled with a fog seal application, traffic can resume in as little as 15-30 minutes. Using these new technologies can enhance the life of road surfaces and result in cost savings.
• Understand how fiber reinforced chip seal produces sufficient tensile strength and flexibility to absorb movements in the pavement structure and can prevent the pavement from cracking. • Improve aggregate retention and provide a long-lasting waterproof black appearance to the roadway using a fog seal application. • Integrate these technologies to enhance surface stability and extend pavement life.
