Surface Profile Chart vs Application Method

If you are looking for a fast and easy way to achieve the right surface preparation standards for your binder systems, read on.

SMITH Manufacturing has developed a simple surface profile chart for the pavement maintenance industry. It only specifies the “end result” as depicted by a profile number (SP1 – SP10).

As a specifier, you simply indicate the numbers from the surface profile chart that would work best for the manufacturer’s binder system. Then, it will be up to the contractor to produce a good match for your selected number(s) using their preferred application methods. This profile chart references selected “end results,” or profiles prior to installing selected coating (binder) systems.

In our experience, when a specific surface profile range is specified vs. a specific application method, everyone benefits – suppliers, contractors, inspectors, and the public.
