Slurry seal and Micro surfacing are excellent solutions for roads that are in the early stage of deterioration. The mixture of aggregate, asphalt emulsion, water and additives are applied in a smooth layer over existing pavement. By doing this early in the pavement’s life-cycle, you can cost-effectively extend the life of the road up to seven years or more.
The main difference between Slurry seal and Micro surfacing is that Slurry seal uses a standard asphalt emulsion which requires evaporation to occur and sets in several hours. Micro surfacing uses a polymer-modified asphalt emulsion that produces a chemical reaction to force the moisture out and can set in less than an hour allowing traffic to return quickly. Slurry seal is typically used on residential streets and parking lots, while Micro surfacing is applicable for all roads, including interstate highways.
