Chip Over Fabric

Pavement fabrics placed under overlays will slow this crack reflection, but not stop it.  Working with the same fabric under a double chip seal has added substantial pavement life at a reduced cost over typical methods of repairs used in the industry.  In addition, pavement deterioration due to oxidation and stripping has been eliminated due to the inability of air and water to penetrate the surface.  Crack reflection has been reduced by more than 90% of alternate methods due to the increased flexibility of the surface through the use of higher percentage of oil in the total mix.  The most surprising aspect of this process is its ability to repair alligatored pavement without removing and replacing the damaged pavement.
