WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SLURRY SEAL

Slurry seal is often confused with other products. It is defined by the ASTM D-3910 standard as a mixture of continuously graded fine aggregate, mineral filler (which is usually Portland cement, but can also be hydrated lime or other materials), emulsified asphalt, and water properly proportioned, mixed, and spread as a surface treatment. The slurry seal process is the continuous combination of aggregate, mineral filler, water, and asphalt emulsion through the truck-mounted mixing unit, which proportions, mixes, and spreads the material in a continuous form until the truck is empty. Then the truck goes back to a stockpile to refill with more materials. Slurry is not made as a batch, taken someplace, and applied; it is a continuous mixing and lay-down procedure.
