The top 6"-10" of the base is pulverized, mixed, compacted and recycled into the road base.  Variables in this process include:
  • Aggregate gradation and soil composition are variables that affect the base stability.

  • A thorough mixture in the top 6"-10" must be provided.

  • Adequate drainage must be available.

  • Emulsified asphalt increases stability.  The proper percentage of asphalt needed for the proper stability is determined by laboratory or engineering analysis.

  • A 4%-6% asphalt residual in the base has proven to be very successful for this process.

  • The final step in stabilization is the use of a single or double Seal Coat/ Armor Coat asphaltic overlay.
