Tar and Chip Paving (also known as Chip seal ) is a pavement surface treatment that combines one or more layers of asphalt with one or more layer(s) of fine gravel. Tar and Chip Paving "also known as chip seal" is used on driveways, parking lots, trails, ranch roads, rural or secondary roads carrying lower traffic volumes.
This type of surface has a variety of other names including "tar and chip", "Tar and Gravel","sprayed chip seal". It goes on beautifully on ranch roads, and driveways. Tar and chip is commonly used on long ranch roads, it is a better surface for farm animals to walk on your cattle and horses will love you for it.
Texan Paving is one of the few paving companies today that still does Tar and Chip Seal, a less expensive alternative to Black Top or Concrete. Tar & Chip Paving (which is also referred to as chip sealing), is very similar to asphalt paving, We use hot tar as a binder and gravel as the main structural component. Unlike asphalt, which is premixed at an asphalt plant, the components are delivered separately and mixed on the job site. Tar and chip is nothing new, its has been used for over 100 years, all over the world, with great success, to pave and resurface roads, parking lots, residential driveways, etc. and is used by county and DOT road crews on road paving projects, in virtually every state in the U.S.
A tar and chip surface is constructed by evenly distributing a thin base of hot asphalt onto a prepared road base surface or an existing pavement and then embedding finely graded gravel into it. The gravel is evenly distributed over the hot tar, then rolled into a smooth pavement surface. A tar and chip seal pavement can optionally be sealed with a top layer, which is referred to as a fog seal or enrichment.
