Fog Seal Treatments Can Enhance Safety

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.

Amelia Earhart. A Spotlight on Women in STEM.

Amelia Earhart was More Than Just an American Aviator

Born July 24, 1897 

We celebrate Amelia Earhart as a pioneering woman of science, someone who participated in and promoted STEM education, much of it here in Indiana.  In 1935, Earhart became a visiting faculty member at Purdue University as an advisor to aeronautical engineering and a career counselor to female students.

Being an Indiana company with deep roots stretching all the way back to 1930, you might imagine the connections with Purdue University are also deep-rooted. We are a company that is involved in construction, materials, chemicals, and environmental services with research and development across all of our businesses. These areas of parallel commonalities to a Purdue University STEM education are just a few reasons why these roots are so deep.
