Fog Seal

Fog Seal is a specifically designed asphalt emulsion used on an existing “sound” paved road surface.  It can be used on hot mix asphalt as a pavement rejuvenator, thus extending the life of the pavement.  Following application the aged pavement appears as an up to date paved surface.  Fog Seals are also extremely effective complements to new and aged chip seal surfaces.  The liquid asphalt secures all the cover stone from the chip seal process and locks it into place.  This technique produces a black surface (helpful for rapid snow melting) for those that prefer a black road and aids in the prevention of water infiltration.

The applications of fog seals are quickly gaining popularity nationwide.  The procedure is relatively inexpensive and extremely cost effective.
