Microsurfacing with cold milling machines as preparatory work for paving thin layers cold
Known as “microsurfacing” in many countries around the globe, paving thin layers in cold application prolongs the service life of damaged asphalt roads without the need for replacing the entire road pavement.
Paving thin layers cold to restore road surface with excellent grip and flatness
Traffic safety is jeopardized when the road surface gets slippery, when wheel ruts have dug into the pavement, or when the road is covered with bumps and deformations. Paving thin layers in cold application is a method that is increasingly used for restoring road surfaces to good evenness and skid resistance.
Cold milling machines with fine milling drums first prepare the road surface for application of the thin overlay. The resultant fine profile of the milled roadway creates an ideal substrate with which the micro-surfacing can engage. The "valleys" of the fine-milled profile securely engage the layers of the micro-surfacing, thus producing a perfect layer structure. Thin layers paved cold on cold provide a cost-effective as well as quick solution. The thin wearing course can be paved in the form of a mobile jobsite and the road reopened to traffic within a short space of time.
