OPEN GRADED PLANT MIX SEALS

OPEN GRADED PLANT MIX SEALS PRESENTLY OFFER THE BEST POTENTIAL OF ANY BITUMINOUS SURFACE FOR PROVIDING AS HIGH A LEVEL OF SKID RESISTANCE THROUGHOUT THE LIFE OF THE PAVEMENT AS IS ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE. A MIX DESIGN MUST BE USED WHICH ALLOWS THE MAXIMUM EFFECTIVENESS OF THE SKID PROPERTIES OF THE AGGREGATE TO BE DEVELOPED. THESE SURFACES ALSO RESULT IN MUCH LESS SPLASH AND SPRAY FROM TRUCK TIRES, ARE QUIETER, AND PRESENT A SMOOTHER RIDING SURFACE. THIS PAPER IS A SUMMARY OF STATE EXPERIENCE AND PRACTICES, AND CONTAINS A RECOMMENDED MIX DESIGN.
