Micro Surfacing & Slurry Seal

Fahrner Asphalt Sealers, LLC offers superior road performance and protection with its slurry seal and micro surfacing applications. These highly effective maintenance and preservation techniques provide a slip resistant and durable road surface that will greatly extend its natural life cycle.

Fahrner Asphalt Sealers, LLC has over 35 years experience and offers Slurry Seal and Micro Surfacing services throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota and upper Michigan.

Benefits of these applications include: 

Cost Less…More Effective

With the rising cost of materials and limited funding, Micro Surfacing and Slurry Seal cover more surface area with less money and provide the best surface quality.

Safer…Better Service

These seals provide superior wet pavement friction and better traction in freezing conditions. The effective macro texture improves tire contact with the pavement in wet conditions and retains road salts longer for better ice control.

What is Slurry Seal?

Slurry Seal is a mixture of emulsified asphalt, well graded fine aggregates, mineral filler (or other additives) and water. It is used to renew pavement surfaces and retard moisture/air intrusion into underlying pavement. Slurry seal is applied from 1/8″ to 3/8″ thick and will fill minor cracks, restore a uniform texture and restore friction loss.

What is Micro Surfacing?

Micro Surfacing is a mixture of polymer modified asphalt emulsion, crushed dense graded aggregate, mineral filler, additives and water. This treatment provides resurfacing from 3/8″ to 3/4″ thick and returns traffic use in one hour under average conditions. This can be applied in multiple applications and provide minor reprofiling. This treatment can also fill wheel ruts up to 1 1/2″ in depth in one pass and produces high surface friction. Micro Surfacing is suitable for use on airport runways, interstate highways, as well as residential streets.
