Over the last fifteen years slurry seal has become accepted as a standard surfacing specification in Africa and North America. In many parts of the world it has been limited principally to a remedial role but there is now growing interest in its use for new construction. "Scope Seal" and "Slurry on Prine" are the two methods used; details are given of each method including composition of materials, construction techniques and their performance in service. The use of slurry seal in new construction has proved to be an economic method with useful performance characteristics and a pleasing appearance. Numerous roads and airfields where slurry seal was used have not been resealed after five to ten years from the date of construction. /TRRL/
