Surface Treatment
Any application applied to an asphalt pavement surface to restore or protect the surface characteristics. Surface treatments include a spray application of asphalt (cement, cutback, or emulsion (liquid)) and may or may not include the application of aggregate cover. Surface treatments are typically less than 25 mm (1 in) thick. They may also be referred to as surface seals, or seal coats or chip seals.
