What is Hot Tar & Chippings Surface Dressing?

Henley on Thames surface dressing is the process of coating a road with a bitumen emulsion and then layering it with a suitably sized stone chipping, depending on the traffic conditions and hardness of the road, to make the surface more resilient to the ingress of water. This dramatically increases the lifetime of the road surface and is very cost-effective when it comes to maintaining or restoring roads in the long term.

Surface dressing is now regarded as the most cost-effective and efficient method of maintaining or restoring road surface conditions. Tarmat UK offers full contracted solutions across all areas of dressing and our experienced team can offer you help and advice on whether or not this is the correct treatment for your needs.

Hot Tar and Chip & Surface Dressing in Henley on Thames

Many highway authorities throughout the UK extensively use the Tar and Chip process. This process consists of applying specialist spraying equipment, and a hot bituminous emulsion to an existing blacktop or concrete surface. When this bituminous emulsion is applied, hard clean aggregates are distributed. This combination of binder and hard stone is then rolled and trafficked to encourage the embedding of the chippings to form a durable layer, protecting the older surface beneath against wear and water ingress. There is a choice of aggregates available for different aesthetics for your surface dressing in Henley on Thames RG9.  

Re-tread or Double Dressing in Henley on Thames

This process is very similar to the hot tar & chip process, but instead of applying the bituminous emulsion to an existing blacktop or concrete surface, the binder is then sprayed on, or incorporated, to the unbound aggregate surface. Typical unbound surface suitable for re-tread / double dressing.

Re-Tread in Henley on Thames

Re-tread involves incorporating the first coat of binder into the aggregate with harrows then two more coats of binder are sprayed on, each followed by a dressing of hard, clean chippings, forming a thick layer of bound material sealing the aggregate beneath and provides a smooth running surface ideal for long driveways and roads.

Double Dressing in Henley on Thames

Double dressing is the same principal as re-tread with the deduction of an initial first coat of binder and harrowing taking place. Providing the same appearance, but not as thick.
