Sealing – hot/mix asphalt

Asphalt gives a very smooth, quiet surface. Once the ground surface is properly prepared, asphalt is laid with our 2006 Blaw-knox BK3020 paver paving width of 1.2-4.8m. We can lay asphalt as thin as a 10mm blinding coat to 150 mm thick, depending on your needs.

Sealing – bitumen/emulsion chip

Chip sealing offers a practicable, hard wearing surface at a lower cost to concrete. The grade (size) of sealing chip used reflects the normal vehicle use of the area, especially vehicle weights and speed.  Tarmac have a 2006 E2 certified Baty sprayer with a 4m spray bar and 3, 6wheeler chip spreaders, we also have our own bitumen bridging truck and trailer with 25’000Lt capacity insuring we have the gear to carry out the bigger reseal contracts.
