Surface dressing is an extremely cost effective way of maintaining a road. At Arnold Tarmac we provide surface dressing for worn and damaged roads. New surface dressing offers improved skidding resistance and helps seal the road surface preventing water penetration.
For larger jobs we use the latest secmair state of the art computer controlled tar and chipsealer. 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 means the binders (tar) have had virtually no time to lose any of its heat and will greatly increase the bond of the tar to the existing surface and the new stone chip.
This computer controlled system uses lookrax software and can read 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 width up to 3.10m wide.
