Tar & chip sealing is very similar to asphalt, as it is a combination of hot liquid asphalt cement, liquid A/C (or hot tar) as a binder and gravel as the main structural component. Unlike asphalt, which is premixed at an asphalt plant, the components are delivered separately and mixed on the jobsite.
Tar & chip is not new, its has been used for over 100 years, all over the world, with great success, to pave and resurface roads, parking lots, residential driveways, etc. and is used by County and State road crews on road paving projects, in virtually every state in America.
The advantages of tar and chip sealing are many.
Very cost effective:
The initial cost of installing tar & chip, can be up to 40% less than a comparable asphalt installation. Maintenance free:
Unlike asphalt which requires seal coating every few years, tar & chip, is virtually maintenance free, as there is never a need to sealcoat. More convenient:
Tar & chip, goes down faster than asphalt and there is hardly any down time, because it can be driven on immediately; you do not need to wait 24 – 48 hours for it to harden. Improved Traction:
The rough, gritty, surface of tar & chip, gives great traction even in wet weather, and is an excellent choice for steep slopes. Cooler temperature:
Because of its light colored stone surface, chip seal does not absorb heat like blacktop does, and stays much cooler.
Tar & chip, provides a beautiful rustic alternative to asphalt, with the look and feel of a country gravel road.
