Chip Coating or Tar & Chip Paving Process
Tar & Chip Paving also known as Chip Coating is a close alternative to asphalt paving. Tar & Chip paving requires the same preparation as paving a road or drive with asphalt. Once the surface has been graded to the proper specifications a coat of asphalt cement (or tar) is applied to the road at the proper thickness. Distributed evenly at the right consistency and the correct temperature the roadway is coated and ready for gravel to be applied.
