Join us for an in-depth exploration of one of the most common pavement preservation techniques in this comprehensive webinar focusing on microsurfacing and slurry seal applications. We’ll delve into the details of these essential treatments, covering everything from the selection of aggregates and emulsions to the mixing procedures and application methods. This webinar will equip attendees with the knowledge and skills needed to optimize pavement longevity and performance.

This session will cover how to identify roads suitable for microsurfacing and slurry seal applications, considering factors such as pavement condition, traffic volume, and environmental considerations. Additionally, it will examine the critical role of equipment calibration in ensuring the quality and effectiveness of pavement preservation treatments. From pavers and support units to spreader boxes and more, we will provide a detailed overview of the equipment used in these applications, along with best practices for operation and maintenance. Finally, we’ll introduce crack seal application techniques as part of a comprehensive pavement preservation strategy.
