Rubber Chip Seal

  1. 1
  2. 2

Rubber Chip Seal is a modernized version of the traditional chip sealing some on Oxford's local streets may have witnessed in the past. It involves a hot spray application of asphalt-rubber over the existing pavement surface followed by the application of cover aggregate, or "chips," then rolling/compacting and finally sweeping to recover excess chips. The asphalt and aggregate layer form a new waterproof wearing surface. The DPW anticipates employing Rubber Chip Seal on rural/local, low to moderate-volume streets with a PCI from 70 to 85. We expect to extend a pavement's life around 5 to 10 years with Rubber Chip Seal.
