Recycling with Top-Seal Black (TSB) is a very efficient and cost-effective method of transforming an old worn out and unsalvageable asphalt (bitumen) surface into a very smooth and hardened traffic bearing roadway for essentially any type of traffic. This method of rehabilitating an old pavement surface with TSB will produce a newly stabilized base far superior to the pre-existing base. In combination with TSB, all of the old pulverized asphalt and old road base material will be tightly cemented into a hardened and solid black mass that is virtually indistinguishable from a newly paved surface. This will then produce an option for adding a new pavement to the base, or to simply defer that decision into a future budget.
Advantages of recycling with TSB are as follows:
