The Benefits of Fog Sealing over a Chip Seal
What is a Fog Seal?
A Fog Seal is a light application of a diluted asphalt emulsion. Utilizing the Fog Seal process on a newly chip sealed road is a low cost process that provides many benefits.
After a chip seal is applied, the excess chips will be swept off of the road (sufficient setting of chip seal oil is required before sweeping). After the excess chips are swept off, the Fog seal crew will apply the Fog Oil over all areas of the road that were chip sealed. Traffic control, taping of water valves/manhole covers, and monitoring the road for proper set up are all done by the Fog crew. The road is typically opened up to traffic within a couple of hours. This set-up time can vary depending on weather and shade.
