What is microsurfacing?

The micro-surfacing or slurry is a mixture of cold blended aggregate and bitumen emulsion. The mixture can be spread both manually and with a machine. The micro-surfacing forms a weather resistant wearing course layer on the road surface. By adding glass-fiber and latex, elastic properties of the micro-surfacing are also ensured even with a thin layer. The mixture can eliminate the minor roughness’s of the road surface and the longitudinal ruts.

How it works?

The mixture is spread out on the road surface as a thin layer. The self-spreading mixture, spread out cold, fills the cracks and micro-cracks on the road surface. No Loose aggregate will remain on the road. Old and worn surface gets a new fresh look. The completed road section can be opened for traffic 1-2 hours after the spreading, and the initial driving speed can be restored. The micro-surfacing (10 mm), compared to milling and asphalt coating og 50 mm, emits 83% less of CO2, consumes 63% less energy and uses 76% less agregate for the creation of a new wearing course layer.
