General Parameters & Advice

Prime coat follows the design of a hot mix or chip seal pavement, as such it is not singled out for site selection, and can be used anywhere that an asphalt layer or chip seal is applied on top of the granular base.

Prime is often deleted in cold weather because it is riskier to pave over uncured prime than over unprimed base.
