CONVENTIONAL CHIP SEALS AS CORRECTIVE MEASURES FOR IMPROVED SKID RESISTANCE

Chips seals are used to improve the surface friction or skid resistance of streets and highways. Their desirability is discussed. Properties including aggregate gradation, type, size, and mineralogy and surface texture are reviewed; bituminous binder type, viscosity, and amount are discussed and related to field experience. Relations of factors associated with the binder and the aggregate are evaluated. Also evaluated are design, construction, and performance to improve skid resistance of the finished surface.
