FAQ  Frequently Asked Questions!


What makes Slurry-Coat work so well? 

The success of Slurry-Coat is the result of many years of lab and field endeavors combined with state of the art engineering technologies. Our Asphalt Slurry-Coat acrylic pavement process utilizes a special formulation which is selectively introduced to create a totally new concept in asphalt product design.  It modifies the molecular bonds within the asphalt emulsion and mixture substantially improves the asphaltís ductility, raises itís softening point and increases adhesion to mineral surface.  Slurry-Coat cross-links as it cures, high resistance to power steering marks and scuffing. Meets the description of 'GRAS' - Generally Regarded As Safe - Contains no Formaldehyde or other biocides.  Much of the new science from that development has been used in the creation of Slurry-Coat.

Are You Licensed?

We are independently licensed by exam through the Asphalt Institute of America.  There is no current Michigan contractor licensing required  for this category.  Additionally we are charter members of the National Pavement Contractors Association.  Note: Approximately 50% of our customers are attorneys, doctors, accountants and contractors.  We are especially pleased to have been featured in Pavement Magazine.

How is Slurry-Coat made and applied?

Also See: Slurry-Coat Raw materials are carried in our specially designed equipment and made independently at every job site. It is then applied to and existing pavement surface and finished with a timely flow application. Stocking of material for future use leads to LESS waste and reworking than with paving.  We exclusively engineer, mix design and install our own jobs to control its quality and ensure that you get the best possible job to make sure your project is done right.  Our goal is to make your job look great!

Is there any type of warranty?  

DISCLAIMER: Due to non-viewable with undetermined or failed sub-base conditions, local high water tables, unpredictable extreme hot or cold weather and existing cracked & damaged asphalt surfaces, we can-not warranty or guarantee any T&D Asphalt Slurry-Coat LLC work.  Any T&D Asphalt Slurry-Coat LLC written material or verbal stated estimates and projections of surface life or wear are in no way a guarantee, warranty or promise of any kind.  T&D Asphalt Slurry-Coat LLC provides immediate visible results and over 30 Years of satisfied customers.  Asphalt Slurry-Coat is not bituminous asphalt and may have some structural limitations. Asphalt Slurry-Coat is classified as seal-coating by Michigan law and was designed for Michigan's extreme harsh climates, tried and tested since 1979.  Exceeds all Michigan & federal Specifications R-P-335 (GSA-FSS).  

What happens if I don't maintain my asphalt?

Eventually asphalt pavement wears out from traffic and exposure to elements such as gasoline, oils, de-icers, chemicals, moisture, wind, sun and rain will result in a loss of its cohesive properties. Parking lots and driveways are particularly susceptible to these problems which cause pavement failure and costly repairs. Over time pavement oxidation from sunlight will cause aggregate to ravel and open to water penetration. Excessive water will sap the internal cohesive strength of asphalt pavement. If allowed to penetrate into the sub-base, cracking and more severe failures will occur. 

Can Asphalt Slurry-Coat be used for Preventative Maintenance?

YES!  It is well suited as a preventive maintenance treatment to extend the life of sound asphalt pavements. Preventive maintenance treatments are low-cost treatments that retard deterioration of the pavement, maintain or improve the functional condition of asphalt and extend the pavement's service life. It provides protection of the pavement surface by delaying the appearance of surface defects caused by both the environment and the associated oxidization of the existing surface. Oxidization of the bituminous surface material leads to surface defects - predominantly raveling, potholes, as well as thermal and age cracking. By using Asphalt Slurry-Coat the rate at which the existing bituminous surface material oxidizes is greatly reduced.  Asphalt Slurry-Coat  has binder rich mixtures which waterproof and seal existing surfaces, protecting the pavement from the adverse effects of the environment. The concept of pavement preservation (as opposed to existing strategies of reactive treatments and reconstruction) is gaining acceptance in North America. The use of preventive maintenance treatments is an essential part of a pavement preservation strategy. Hence, the use of Asphalt Slurry-Coat to preserve pavements is becoming the preferred choice by many Commercial and Residential property owners.
