Micro-surfacing – The Need of the Hour

Micro surfacing treatment is a process of layering a mixture of asphalt emulsion aggregate, water and various chemical additives on an already existing asphalt concrete pavement surface. This process is undertaken to ensure that the already existing concrete pavement lasts longer. A typical micro surfacing can last by approximately seven years. This method is used as a cost-effective way to seal small cracks on the surface of a road or to mend irregularities in it. The emulsified asphalt is treated with a polymer-based solution in order to speed up the curing process. This method is faster and more cost-effective than applying a slurry seal, in which the asphalt emulsion is not treated with a polymer solution. Special equipment is used to mix and lay down the mixture to the pavement, including the use of a micro surfacing paver.

Overview of the Process

First, the micro surfacing mixture is mixed and applied by a purpose-built truck called a slurry truck or a continuous machine. Aggregate and asphalt emulsion is added via feeding trucks to the continuous machine or slurry truck that keeps mixing constantly and continuously. After being mixed sufficiently, the micro surfacing is then laid out on the outbound surface via a micro box, which contains an auger that uniformly distributes the mixture to the surface. Workers with squeegees and a piece of burlap attached to the machine are used to evenly distribute the mixture on the surface and correct any uneven spillage. This creates a uniform and smooth surface on the already existing asphalt. After application, the micro surfacing is left to harden for about one to two hours, after which the process is completed.

Benefits of Micro Surfacing

Getting micro surfacing done is a great and cost-effective way to improve the condition of a road. Roads are subject to harsh temperatures and eroding water infiltration. These reasons cause the road surface to crack and irregularities to form. This makes a road unfit for vehicular use and erodes the surface quickly. Micro surfacing breathes new life to such roads, filling in the irregularities and renewing the strength of the road surface. Micro surfacing also addresses problems such as rutting, ravelling, bleeding and minor cracking of the asphalt surface. Moreover, the micro surfacing is also suitable for any commercial, industrial or residential roadway. Finally, as the last point, it improves the aesthetic of the road and makes it more desirable to drive over.
