Haul Road Stabilization and Dust Control Program

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:

  • Environmentally safe
  • Superior performance in comparison with traditional asphalt (bitumen) based emulsions
  • Less expensive and more stable in pricing compared to constant fluctuations of petroleum based additives
  • Elimination of removing and disposing of old asphalt (bitumen) surfaces in accordance with strict environmental laws
  • Reconstruction of a newly stabilized base with TSB will be far superior to the pre-existing base

Environmentally safe and easy to use, TSB is the perfect alternative to the traditional use of asphalt emulsions in the recycling and upgrading of old asphalt (bitumen) roads. The product is simply fed into a reclaimer or blade-mixed during the recycling process. The surface is
then over coated and compacted to a final proctor. When completed, the unpaved and hardened road will be fully stabilized and ready for traffic, or it can be further upgraded with a primer and an asphalt wearing surface. The savings on a reclaimed TSB road can be ultimately reprogrammed into future upgrades with asphalt. As a result, TSB will pay for itself, many times over!
