Asphalt Paving Systems, Inc. is dedicated to offering a full range of state-of-the-art pavement solutions to preserve, reclaim, rehabilitate, and maintain pavements at any stage.
Microsurfacing allows road owners to maintain their roadway infrastructure at a higher level of service for less money. High quality aggregates are combined with polymer-modified asphalt emulsion to create a long-lasting, high performance wearing course. Microsurfacing is most effectively used as a pavement preservation technique on roads that have started to show signs of aging, cracking, oxidation and other minor distressing. Additionally, by preparing the existing asphalt with crack seal, road owners are able to dramatically reduce reflective cracking and eliminate base failures caused by surficial moisture intrusion. These powerful pavement management tools endow road owners with the ability to maintain their existing pavements at a higher level of service, for a longer period of time, at a lower cost.
The Cape Seal process is when a Microsurfacing or Slurry Seal application is place over the Chip Seal.
Micro is used in multi-lane centerline joint maintenance.
Micro is used to fill-in rumble strips for temporary lane shifts or for new construction.
Micro is used as an intermediate bonding course for HMA in slick bleeding areas and on polished concrete aggregate.
Micro can be used on bridge decks without adding excessive aggregate weights.
Micro is used as a leveling course before other Asphalt treatments.
Micro is used on Airport ramps and travel ways.
Micro is a cost effective way to resurface parking lots.
Micro extends the life of any roadway.
Micro reduces our carbon foot print in roadway construction, less emissions to produce and apply.
Federal Highway Administration
Has your highway network had a checkup lately? Are your resources being allocated strategically to achieve the best value? Will current and planned reconstruction, rehabilitation, and preservation work produce a net improvement in the condition of your network?
A brochure available from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the National Center for Pavement Preservation (NCPP), A Quick Check of Your Highway Network Health provides a tool for highway agency managers to assess the needs of their pavement networks and determine if their resource allocations are adequate.
Any cost effective road maintenance program should include the ability to apply a durable, skid resistant, rapid setting surface that will minimize traffic delays during construction. Microsurfacing is the solution. Pavement Maintenance programs are influenced by many factors including: traffic safety (both during construction and with the finished product), budget constraints, energy costs, and conservation of raw materials. Microsurfacing is an emulsified asphalt paving system that addresses these concerns with advantages of cost, versatility, performance, and speed of application. Microsurfacing can be used for preparation work such as rut filling and leveling, as well as the wearing surface. It has been successfully applied over bituminous concrete, milled surfaces, chip surfaces (oil & stone), brick or stone pavers, and portland cement concrete. Applications may include parking lots to any facet of a roadway network from residential streets to interstate highways.
