Bio-Fog Seal Field Evaluation

Asphalt-based fog seal surface treatments have been successfully used for many years as a preventive maintenance tool for bituminous pavements. In the last few years a number of products have been introduced as alternative surface sealers for bituminous streets, highways, shoulders, and recreation trails. Many new products use agricultural-based components, and the performance and effect on bituminous pavement is unknown. Objective - It is proposed that a number of bio-sealers should be studied in laboratory and field evaluations in order to document their performance and effect on bituminous pavements. Bituminous shoulder sections less than 2 years old would be used for field test sections. The proposed project would seek LRRB funding. The objective of the project is to obtain relevant properties of these new materials that would allow engineers to evaluate and predict the performance of these materials as part of the pavement preservation activities.
