      A chip seal is a very effective thin surface treatment process used by maintenance managers to preserve existing asphalt pavements. The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) 2014 Chip Seal Manual is a guide that provides guidelines, background and general information for the design, construction, and inspection of chip seals. This manual is intended for use by KDOT field engineers, laboratory personnel, construction inspectors, and contractor’s estimators, supervisors, operators, and workers to provide procedures for the design of chip seals. The information, recommendations and best practices provided in this manual may refer to either: (1) learning the overall chip seal operation; (2) learning about the workings, maintenance, calibration and proper operation of equipment used in chip sealing; or (3) learning chip seal design procedures.

Chapter 4 discusses surface preparation prior to chip sealing. Chapter 5 describes equipment inspection and calibration. Chapter 6 discusses the actual application process.
