What is a Scrub Seal?

A scrub seal is a type of chip seal paving treatment that uses brooms to “scrub” a pavement surface as it is sprayed, ensuring that asphalt emulsion can reach into cracks and imperfections. Specialized equipment, such as the Scrub Seal Broom Box, brushes and spreads asphalt, while aggregate chips are laid behind the emulsion, and rollers press and seal chips into the pavement surface. This process is remarkably similar to typical tar & chip paving, except for the brooms and scrubbing. With scrub seals, you can expect:

  • Enhanced Pavement Durability – Scrub seals penetrate deeper into existing cracks and imperfections, significantly improving the pavement’s resistance to water and wear and extending its lifespan.
  • Cost-Effective Maintenance – Compared to a complete overhaul, scrub seals offer an affordable way to maintain roads, parking lots, and driveways, delivering a high-quality finish without the high cost.
  • Improved Skid Resistance – Aggregate chips applied over the emulsion not only seal the surface but also provide additional texture. This texture enhances the pavement’s skid resistance, making it safer for vehicles to traverse.
  • Quick Application and Cure Time – The scrub seal process is faster than many traditional paving treatments, allowing roads to be reopened to traffic more quickly and minimizing disruptions.
  • Environmentally Friendly – Scrub seals are a more sustainable choice for pavement maintenance because they extend the life of existing pavement, reduce the need for complete replacements, and utilize recycled materials.
