Fog Seal

Lowest Cost Pavement Preservation Technique

DESCRIPTION

Fog Sealing is a technique of spraying a light application of asphalt emulsion onto a pavement surface. When used with chip seals, Fog Seals increase chip retention to tightly lock in aggregates.

APPLICATION

Fog Seals are applied by properly calibrated asphalt distributors to achieve uniform coverage. The combination of binder read in the fog seal with chip seal provides a hard asphalt enriched pavement surface.
