Asphalt Distributors Are Necessary for Chip Seal Paving

Asphalt distributors play a critical role in the chip and seal process. They are one of the most important pieces of equipment you need for chip seal paving. For example, asphalt distributors are the machines that provide even and precise application of the liquid asphalt to the pavement. That way, all the layers of the pavement will bond better with subsequent layers of aggregate. In addition, the asphalt applied to the surface by the asphalt distributors serves as the base layer for the aggregate added later by chip spreaders. So, it is important to get reliable and accurate performance by asphalt distributors to ensure the long-term integrity of the pavement.

What Asphalt Distributor Products Are Available?

BearCat Manufacturing offers some of the most trusted equipment you need for chip seal paving. Here is are available options when it comes for asphalt distributors:

  • BC-502 Asphalt Distributor– BearCat’s BC-502 model is known as “the legend” in the road maintenance machine industry because of its unmatched productivity. We equip it with some of the most sought after features available including a steel storage tank, spray bar, computerized rate control, heating system, and more!
  • Granulated Rubber Asphalt Distributor– Like the BC-502, BearCat’s granulated rubber asphalt distributor moves vast amounts of bonding agents. The extra-large inlet pipes, high-performance diesel burners, and internal augers on our equipment allow for easy transport of the road binding materials.
  • Dust Control Spray Systems– The systems are specially crafted for chemical resistance agents and other applications. We can install new dust control spray equipment or retrofit it to existing equipment you already own.
  • Asphalt Pull Trailer– We can also supply your road maintenance company with a two-axle pull trailer, allowing you the capability of hauling 20 tons of materials. Plus, it is equipped for easy unloading of the full load of materials.

Chip Seal Paving Projects Require Chip Spreaders

Chip spreaders also play a crucial role in the chip and seal process. They are the other pieces of equipment you need for chip seal projects. After the asphalt distributor applies the base layer, Bearcat Manufacturing chip spreaders provide precise application of even amounts of aggregate over the asphalt base. It is important to have precision during this step because too much or too little aggregate will cause problems with the asphalt bonding process. If that happens, the integrity of the pavement will not hold up under heavy usage.
