A double bituminous surface treatment is a method of pavement construction that involves two separate applications of asphalt binder material and mineral aggregate on a prepared surface. Double bituminous surface treatments are used for surfacing roads and streets, parking areas, open storage areas, and airfield shoulders and overruns.
Asphalt surface treatments refer to the reconditioning of the wearing (surface) course of older existing asphalt pavements. The term may also be applied to the final phases of new asphalt pavement construction. (Article 32.12.16 discusses Asphalt Paving).Surface treatments provide enhanced waterproofing of the pavement, prevent the raveling (detachment and loss) of the fine …
When work is completed and initial asphalt set has occurred, traffic is till maintained at less than 32 km/hr until the asphalt finally sets. Surface Treatment Problems. Because of construction methods, surface treatments may develop some defects that do not occur in other types of asphalt pavement surfaces.
Construction quality is crucial to the long-term pavement performance. Construction factors such as surface preparation, placement, joint construction and compaction/consolidation have an overwhelming effect on pavement performance, which cannot be ignored or compensated for in mix or structural design. Other construction considerations such as plant operations, mix transport and quality ...
Asphalt Treatments As NCPP's Galehouse implied, a big part of pavement preservation is keeping water out of pavements, and the water-proofing properties of asphalt surface treatments and liquid asphalt mean they take top billing in pavement preservation techniques. Such pavement preservation practices include crack sealing, patching, fog seals
In recent years new materials and construction techniques have been developed, such as warm-mix asphalt, cold in-place recycling, and various surface treatment methods that provide a broad platform to develop novel uses of ferrous, nonferrous, and nonmetallurgical slag aggregate products.
necessary to complete the construction of hot mix asphalt concrete pavement consisting of one or more courses on a previously prepared base, seal coat of asphalt cement and cover aggregate, and bituminous surface treatment in single or multiple courses. Article 1.2 Applicable Standards ... Mix Design Methods for Asphalt Concrete, by The Asphalt ...
Asphalt seal-coat treatments are mainly a preventive maintenance procedure applied to the asphalt pavement surface to prevent or delay costly corrective measures (figure 2). Asphalt seal coats are surface treatments designed to seal and protect the asphalt pavement from harmful environmental conditions such as sunlight, rain, and snow.

6. Surface texture.Workability and pavement strength ar e influenced by surface textur e. A rough, sandpapery texture results in a higher strength than a smooth texture. Although smooth-faced aggregates are easy to coat with an asphalt film, they are generally not as good as r ough surfaces. It is harder for the asphalt to ÒgripÓ the smooth ...
At one time it was thought that a prime coat was an essential element of good pavement construction. However, in recent years some engineers have eliminated the use of a prime, especially when asphalt layer(s) (surface and/or base) is 4 inches or more in thickness.
SURFACE TREATMENTS 316.1. Description. This Item shall govern for the construction of a surface treatment composed of a single, double or triple application of asphaltic material, each covered with aggregate, constructed on existing pavements or on the prepared base course or surface in accordance with these specifications.

As used in this document, bleeding is the upward movement of asphalt in a seal coat or surface treatment resulting in the formation of a film of asphalt ... surface treatment construction before the binder has fully cured.
Construction of surface treatments should not be carried out during wet or cold weather. Air temperatures should be at least 1 OOC (50°F in the shade and ... Other methods, such as those given by the Asphalt Institute, use surface area formulas for design of aggregate and binder quantities.

The term asphalt surface treatments is used to cover a vast range of materials that are typically surface coatings made up of materials using asphalt emulsions and often-times a combination of asphalt emulsions and aggregates. Typically, these materials are placed in a thin layer on the surface of roadways that have been previously constructed ...
The performance characteristics of pavement preservation treatments using RAP or aggregate are similar, as are chip seal application rates and construction techniques. RAP slurry seals are reported to benefit from pneumatic tire roller passes that seat the RAP particles and seal the treatment surface …
TRB conducted a webinar on Monday, November 19, 2018, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that discussed available methods for measuring moisture infiltration into pavements. Presenters described a universal method for measuring water infiltration into multiple types of in-place asphalt pavement surfaces. They also discussed novel materials, design, and/or construction practices that may minimize ...
modification methods, demonstrated performance, surface treatments, environmental applicability, materials selection, and cost-benefit analysis of polymer modifiers. A brief overview of polymer and emulsion chemistry is provided, as is a discussion of the pavement conditions and applications which contraindicate the use of polymer modifiers.
Below are brief discussions of each of the tier 1 treatments. Asphalt pavements (C&MS Items 424, 441, 442, and 443) A new asphalt surface using any of the standard specification items with proper construction techniques and approved materials is expected to provide the necessary wet weather friction for most locations.
Chapter 10 reflect this "art." Also, Chapter 5 will provide the Standard Specifications for Asphalt Surface Treatments. This manual serves as one piece in this mission by providing a reference to 70 years of progressive experience in the "Art of Road Oil." The standard practices and everyday
Float and Chip Seal surface treatments. In October 2001, the "Asphalt Surface Treatment Guide" by Robert L. McHattie, P.E. was completed for the Department. This is not a Design Guide, it covers materials selection and quality, construction methods, and troubleshooting three types of asphalt surface treatments used in Alaska.

Bituminous surface treatments (BST) refer to a range of techniques that can be used to create a stand-alone drivable surface on a low volume road, or rehabilitate an existing pavement. Usually, the term is used to describe a seal coat or chip seal, which is constructed by spraying a layer of emulsified asphalt, and placing a layer of aggregate on top.
