Step 1: Find the surface area of your roadway in m2 (length x width)
|Length of Roadway (m)||Width of Roadway (m)|
Step 2: Calculate the amount of product needed (area x application rate)
|Application Rate (litres per m2)||Area of Road Surface (m2)|
|1.5 litres/m2||750 litres||3,750 litres||15,000 litres|
|1.7 litres/m2||850 litres||4,250 litres||17,000 litres|
|2.0 litres/m2||1,000 litres||5,000 litres||20,000 litres|
New aggregate is not necessary if the surface material can be bladed to a depth of 1.5 – 2 inches.
However, gravel separates overtime due to heavy vehicle traffic poundings, environmental factors, and aggregate loss. Fresh aggregate would ensure that the proper mix of rock, clay, and fines are present in the material mix and is recommended for optimal application benefits.
