<< Back to Glossary

A layer of single size chippings; 6mm, 10mm or 14mm single size chipping is applied with the first spray application of bitumen emulsion to form the bottom layer. The bottom layer is immediately resprayed and dressed with 6mm single size chipping to form the final surface layer. This surface dressing method is mainly used on newly laid path bases.
