#TeamTabasco was out Paving on Richmond Lane in Newburgh NY. For this job we had to widen the driveway by two feet and bring a load of #4 crushed stone. Most people don't realize that when you're completely redoing a driveway from the base up you'll need to let it stand for a few weeks to ensure the base is as strong and reliable as possible.
Last Thursday #TeamTabasco was out paving on Center Street Newburgh NY. Check out the photo gallery below. We removed all the high areas, edged and cleaned entire surface. As usual we applied a tack coat for the new asphalt to bond, prefilled all low areas to shim and level the surface, then we paved with 2-inches of state approved of asphalt.
What is Tack Coat for paving and sealcoating?
A tack coat is something we apply to a clean surface to ensure the asphalt sticks properly. This ensures a long healthy life for a new driving surface!
The technical explanation from Asphalt Magazine is, “A tack or bond coat is a spray application of asphalt emulsion that provides a bond between the existing pavement and a new overlay. Tack coats significantly increase the strength and fatigue life of pavements at a low cost. A good tack coat provides a uniform thin, tacky, adhesive film without running off the road or causing slippage between the old and new pavement surface. The tack coat is sprayed at a uniform rate from an asphalt distributor. The sprayed emulsion is allowed to break before the new surface is applied.”
