Fog Seal Treatments can be a valuable aid to renew weathered asphalt surfaces while also improving the appearance of the surface.
A fog seal is a single application, typically light, of emulsified asphalt to an existing asphalt road surface. This type of maintenance treatment can be a valuable aid to renew weathered (oxidized) asphalt surfaces, improve the surface appearance, seal minor cracks and surface voids, and inhibit raveling.
On July 29th a fog seal project took place in Morgan County, Indiana. The pictures in this article are from that project.
Fog seals may also be used on chip seal applications to help lock the coarse aggregate and provide a darker color, which improves safety by making the striping more visible.
DOTs are being challenged to build more resilient and sustainable transportation systems to benefit and protect communities, improve the resilience of at-risk infrastructure, and institutionalize climate-informed decision-making.
When roads last longer, they are more resilient and sustainable. Since fog seals are a maintenance treatment, they can be a valuable aid to renew weathered asphalt surfaces and seal minor cracks and surface voids which can extend the life of a road.
