The NovaChip® process was developed in the 1990s to provide a superior surface treatment on heavily traveled roads.
This application combines the two key processes of traditional paving methods into one with one machine – a Spray Paver. The idea behind this machine was to be able to spray a heavy application of the bonding agent (emulsion or tack coat) without trucks tracking it away from the job. At the same time, the machine installs a thin layer of a high quality, open graded, hot mix asphalt to the asphalt or concrete it is being placed on (1/2 inch to 7/8 of an inch).
The end result is a superior hot mix surface treatment.
Our state-of-the-art Roadtec SP200 Spray Paver travels throughout the Midwest, providing an approved application for DOTs, municipalities, counties, and residential subdivisions.
Spray Bars enclosed shooting emulsion at a rate of 0.15 to 0.25 gallons per SY. As you can see, the hot mix is laid directly after the emulsion is shot and before it can break.
