Slurry Seal Technology
WACO LTD offers superior road performance and protection with its slurry seal surfacing applications. Slurry Seal is a mixture of emulsified asphalt, well graded fine aggregates, mineral filler (or other additives) and water. It is used to renew pavement surfaces and retard moisture/air intrusion into underlying pavement. Slurry seal is applied from 6mm to 10mm thick and will fill minor cracks, restore a uniform texture and restore friction loss.These is a highly effective maintenance and preservation technology that provide good skid resistant and durable road surface as a fair cost in that with the rising cost and scarcity of road construction materials materials not to mentions limited funding and resources to rehabilitate roads, Slurry Seal cover more surface area at lesser cost of input and yet providing the best surface quality and value.
ColdMix Asphalt Technology
Bituminous road construction using conventional paving grade bitumen (HMA) is technically not feasible and logistically not viable in areas characterised by high rainfall, this wet seasons render the effect of erractic production and laying which can be expensive. Similarly, areas of high altitude with very low pavement temperatures make laying of hot mixes rather a challange for and effective delivery of a sound pavement.The use of Bitumen emulsion eliminates the need to heat bituminous binder and aggregates; coats damp aggregates, prevents degradation of environment and thus conserves energy.WACO experience in emulsions has adopted cold mix technologies for different specifications such as Bituminous Macadam (BM), Mix Seal Surfacing (MSS), Double Coat Surface Dressing (DCSD) and Premix Asphalt in accordance with specifications for Low Volumen Technology in Kenya. WACO Technical Team has wide experience on the construction of roads using emulsion based cold mix technologies. These cold mixes can be produced either by using concrete mixer, cold asphalt mix plant or in hot mix plant without use of the heating facility. The paver and other construction machineries, as in normally employed for hot mixes, can be used for execution of these works.
Cape Seal Technology
A cape seal is an application of a chip seal followed by the application of slurry seal at a later date. The chip seal serves to seal and bond the cracks in the existing pavement. The slurry seal serves to improve the chip retention and smoothness of the driving surface. Cape seals are typically applied on an intermittent, project-specific basis. Location, weather, traffic loading, and pavement conditions are factors used to determine if a cape seal application is appropriate. Roadways selected for cape seal treatments are commonly those which have moderate distress, limited or no rutting, moderate crack widths, and in which a cape seal treatment would help extend the pavement life until rehabilitation or reconstruction can be performed. Typically cape seals are applied in residential streets where a chip seal would create a rougher surface
