11  Portland cement is used as mineral filler  Must be Type I, Type II or Type III cement  Other additives may be added to control the emulsion set time depending upon weather conditions Materials-Mineral filler & other additives Section C(4)

12  Truck mounted mixer-spreader unit or continuous self loading mixing machine  Capable of proportioning micro surfacing emulsion using a positive displacement pump.  Must be calibrated in compliance with Caltrans Material Plant Quality Program (MPQP)  Variable Rate Emulsion Pump must be calibrated & sealed in calibrated condition under Caltrans MPQP Equipment Section C(5)a

13  Spreader boxes ≥ 8 ft. wide must have;  Baffles or motor driven reversible augers  Ensure uniform application on superelevated sections and slopes  Must have a series of strike off devices at rear  The leading strike off device must be; Fabricated of suitable material such as steel or natural rubber Designed to maintain close contact with the pavement during spreading Capable of obtaining the specified thickness Capable of being adjusted to the various pavement cross sections Equipment Section C(5)b

14  The final strike-off device must be ; Fabricated of flexible material that produces a uniform smooth texture in the finished surface Cleaned daily and changed if longitudinal scouring occurs in the micro-surfacing  Shoulder Equipment  Edge box shoulders must form clean, straight joints and edges Equipment Section C(5)b & c

15  Scratch Course Box  Scratch course box must have an adjustable steel strike-off device for final strike-off  Wheel Path Depression (Rut) Box must have  5-6 feet adjustable strike-off device to regulate depth  Hydraulic augers capable of: Moving the mixed material from the rear to the front of the filling chamber Guiding larger aggregate into the deeper section of the wheel path Forcing the finer material towards the outer edges of the spreader box Equipment Section C(5)d & e

16  Pneumatic Tired Rollers ≥ 3000 lbs. Load per wheel for scratch & rut fill courses  Self Propelled Power Brooms & Vacuums  If using truck mounted mixer spreaders for placement, minimum of two mixer spreaders required at site Equipment Section C(5)a & d

17 Construction Procedures  Proper surface preparation  Fog the pavement surface if necessary  Place approved micro surfacing mixture in wheel path depressions (ruts) with a rut box  Do not apply more than 0.12’ thick layer at a time  Apply multiple times to fill the depressions  Allow Mat to Cure or Cool  Allow traffic to compact micro surfacing for 12 hours before placing next micro surfacing layer.

18 Construction- Surface Preparation-Existing Pavement Section D Surface Preparation

19 Construction- Surface Preparation-Existing Pavement Section D Surface Preparation  Clean Pavement surface.  Remove loose particles of extraneous materials, including paving and dirt.  Use non destructive methods such as flushing and sweeping.

20 Construction- Surface Preparation-Existing Pavement Section D Surface Preparation  Cover all exposed facilities before micro surfacing application.  Reference all covered facilities properly for easy location.  After micro surfacing application, expose the covered facilities.  All starts and stops on roofing felt to ensure clean sharp joints  Fog the roadway surface before the spreader box

21 Construction- REPAIR WHEEL PATH DEPRESSION  Fill wheel path depressions & irregularities with a scratch course, where specified.  If the depressions are ≥1/2” use wheel path depression (rut) box to fill the depressions  Place layers not ≥0.12’ in one pass.  Allow for 12 hours compaction by traffic before placing the next layer. Section D(2)(c)

22 Construction –Applying MICROSURFACING  After filling the wheel path depressions & irregularities with a scratch course, place the final micro surfacing layer.  Allow Micro surfacing to cure and set.  Open to traffic after brooming. Section D(2)(c)

23 Construction- Joints  Longitudinal and transverse joints must be; Uniform Straight Neat in appearance Butt type joints Without material build up Without uncovered areas On centerlines, lane lines, edge lines or shoulder lines With not more than 3” overlaps Section D(4)(a)(i)

24 Construction- WEATHER restrictions Section D(4)(a)(ii)  Place when both pavement and air temperatures ≥ 50 o F and rising.  Do not place if pavement and air temperatures ≤ 50 o F and falling.  Expected high temperature ≤ 65 o F within 24 hour of placing.  No placement if rain is imminent or air temperature is expected to go below ≤ 36 o F.

29 Quality Control Pre- Application Inspection (cont.)  Micro surfacing application rate  Traffic control plan and setup

30 Quality ASSURANCE - construction Inspection  Micro surfacing aggregate application rates  Start & stop operations  Traffic Control & Trucking operation  Rolling

31 Quality ASSURANCE - construction Inspection  Longitudinal joints – ensure no material buildup  Transverse joints – ensure clean joints, start and stop on roofing felt  Brooming to ensure absence of loose aggregate

32 Quality Control /ASSURANCE Post-Application Inspection  Cleanup  Opening to traffic
