Surface Dressing

It consists of application in one or two coats, each consisting of a layer of bituminous binder sprayed on a previously prepared base, followed by a cover of stone chips rolled in to form a wearing course. RS-2 type cationic bitumen emulsion is ideal for surface dressing on the shoulders and for protection of freshly laid base course. Typical rate of application for two coat surface dressing as per (MORTH&H) clause 510.2 is 28-32 kg/10sq.m.

   

Grouting

For economical construction of low volume roads, a combined base and wearing courses can be made by an application of HPCPL RS-2 cationic bitumen emulsion on the laid and compacted aggregates. This application can be carried out even when the stone layer is damp.

   

Penetration Macadam

It consists of construction of one or more layer of compacted crushed coarse aggregates with alternate application of bituminous binder and key aggregate. to be used as a base course on road, subject to the requirements of the overall pavement design.

   

Sand Seal

A bituminous sand application for existing pavement surface to seal the surface and to function as a light-wearing course.

 

 

Recommended rate of application

 Typical rate of application of BS group Bitumen Emulsion RS2 for two coat surface dressing is
 28-32 kg/10 m2.
