HMA Thinlay:  The High Value Pavement Enhancement

As a pavement reaches about 75 percent of its service life, its rate of deterioration accelerates - sometimes even doubles.  Without preventive maintenance over the course of its life cycle, the costs to restore that pavement can more than quadruple.



HMA ThinLay Makes Dollars and Sense

Most common surface maintenance treatments only delay the inevitable.  But a thin overlay of hot-mix asphalt - such as HMA Ultra-Thin - not only provides a new pavement surface for a fraction of the cost of starting over, it's the only preventive maintenance technique that adds structural value to the roadway, while helping to extend a pavement's service life.

HMA Ultra-Thin offers a simple, cost effective way to maintain roads and streets, as it protects your investment in them.  A hot mix asphalt treatment designed specifically for thin lift (3/4 inch) placement, HMA Ultra-Thin was developed for structurally sound pavements that are showing signs of aging, oxidation or minor surface disintegration.  You end up with a stronger, more beautiful pavement that improves the ride quality for drivers and reduces traffic noise for the community.
