Surface Dressing


Using Tar and chip is a great way to do up or redo a road surface.It has a much more natural look than Ashphalt which can integrate better into more natural surroundings. We can use this method for small jobs (such as small driveways and paths ) and all the way up to large scale public use ( Such as Public highways ) We also provide a variety of different colours and sizes of the stone chips to give it the look that you want. For larger jobs we use the latest Secmair state of the art computer controlled tar and chip feeders. This has a 'one pass' surface dressing system which allows the chips to be fed onto the hot tar binder within 1 second of its application. This that the binders(The tar) has had virtually no time to lose any of its heat and will greatly increase its bond of the tar to the existing  surface and the new stone chips.
This computer controlled system uses Lookrax software and reads the quality of the road surface before the new tar and chip surface is applied. This system can apply the new surface as a patch,part width of the road or a full blanket of  width of 3.10m wide.
