Micro-surfacing Advantages

Beyond extending pavement life for a lower cost, here are five other key benefits of micro-surfacing.

Improves Safety

As pavements wear down over time, they become slick, especially around curves. The aggregate mix in micro-surfacing restores surface quality and improves skid resistance helping to dramatically reduce accident rates.

Corrects Rutting Issues

Micro-surfacing can also be used to fill wheel-path ruts. A special rut-fill box is used to fill one rut at a time, up to about two inches in depth. This is a cost-effective alternative to expensive pavement milling and hot mix inlay. 

Seals and Reduces Pavement Oxidation

Asphalt oxidation causes major changes to binder properties and is a major contributor to age-related pavement failure such as fatigue cracking. The additional 3/8" surface provided by micro-surfacing adds a new, protective layer to the pavement.

Quick Construction

One hour after the micro-surfacing treatment has been applied, it's ready for traffic and gives the appearance of an all-new surface.

Installation Anytime

Day or night, micro-surfacing is a process that can be performed on high, medium or low volume roadways without causing extensive construction delays.

Longitudinal joint sealer

The weakest section of the pavement is the longitudinal construction joint between traffic lanes. Micro-surfacing prevents moisture from causing expansion, helping prevent costly milling repairs.
