Micro-Asphalt Surface Treatment Works

Micro-Asphalt is a mixture of polymer modified bitumen emulsion, small aggregate and cement.


Micro-asphalt will seal the surface, improve surface texture and prolong the life of the road for many years.


It is a dual application process, with the first application regulating the existing surface, and the second application gives the final surface.


It is a speedy, efficient and economic method of preventative maintenance and carrying out minor re-profiling of carriageway surfaces.


Generally, work will be carried out between 7.00am and 6.00pm, 7 days a week. 


The material will remain wet for anything from 15 - 30 minutes after it has been laid, depending on the temperature and humidity. When first laid the material is brown in colour. As it sets it turns to a dark grey/black. The action of trafficking improves the newly laid surface and controls the speed of setting.


An excess of loose aggregate may build up on the road for a period of time after completion, which is normal for this process and will be removed by a suction sweeper when necessary. Please drive slowly and observe the temporary signs that will have been left in place.


Please note: Vehicle access to properties may be restricted during works. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience.
