RECOMMENDATIONS FOR TAR SURFACE PRESSINGS

THESE RECOMMENDATIONS ARE BASED ON SYSTEMATIC FULL-SCALE TRIALS UNDERTAKEN OVER A PERIOD OF MANY YEARS BY THE ROAD RESEARCH LABORATORY JOINTLY WITH THE MINISTRY OF TRANSPORT, THE BRITISH ROAD TAR ASSOCIATION AND THE ROAD BITUMEN ASSOCIATION. SURFACE DRESSINGS PROPERLY APPLIED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE RECOMMENDATIONS SHOULD LAST FOR AT LEAST FIVE YEARS BEFORE FURTHER TREATMENT IS REQUIRED' THEY LAST A GREAT DEAL LONGER IN MANY CASES. INCLUDED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE FOURTH EDITION IS A SECTION ON THE SURFACE DRESSING OF FORMATIONS AND SUB-BASES. SECTIONS ARE ALSO INCLUDED ON SURFACE DRESSING WITH HIGH-VISCOSITY TAR, AND SURFACE DRESSINGS ON OPEN-TEXTURED AND POROUS BITUMINOUS SURFACES, ON EXTREMELY HARD SURFACES SUCH AS CONCRETE, AND ON WATER-BOUND MACADAM OR GRAVEL SURFACES. /RRL/
