Concentrate Is Very
Easy To Use
is simply diluted to its proper
strength in a water truck and applied as directed. Traffic does not need
to be interrupted while
is applied or curing. When paving
after application, it is suggested that 24 to 72 hours curing time be
allowed to obtain maximum cementation.
REQUIRED EQUIPMENTThere are no special equipment requirements
BS-100 during routine road construction. Only the
following items are needed:
Other types of equipment may be used for special projects such as
reclaiming old asphalt or seal coat roads. Additional equipment includes:
/ Recycle Machine, and Vibratory Compactor.
GENERAL DILUTION RATES for BASE-SEAL
As a general rule, 3.0 to 4.0 ounces of
will treat 1 square
yard of road base to a depth of 6 inches when diluted with water and
properly applied. Each gallon of
BASE-SEAL BS-100, gets diluted with approxomately 32 gallons of water (1:32 ratio) in the water truck.
Compaction must begin when the mixture is completely uniform at Optimum
Moisture Content (OMC). The required density is a minimum of 98%
standard proctor and can be easily achieved by a vibratory compactor.
Additional water can be added to the BASE-SEAL
BS-100 & water solution to achieve OMC.
Typically, a road 1 mile long and 24 ft wide (14080 square yards)
treated to a depth of 6 inches requires 7 to 8 drums of
In granular soils, some engineers are using our
product along with
BASE-SEAL BS-100 for even greater road base
Factors that will determine the exact amount of
to be used
are the soil types encountered, the volume of traffic (AADT) the road
is expected to handle. Higher AADT counts will require greater
depths of base course treatment.
