Default Road Planings

Just as a matter of interest when I used to have to dig into a heap of the above with a loadall it was hard to get the bucket into the heap due to it "setting" where it lay. Once spread the setting process usually meant it would stay in place.

The road planings I get now never sets and forms a surface more like compacted type 1.

I know about the "fill up a watering can with diesel" comments you read on the internet but you never used to need this. So what is the differences between the old and the new. Is it the product or the machining processes or possibly the additives in older tar products etc?

Would it make a difference if it had been put through a crushing or screening plant. I haven't come across some decent plannings for ages. They have come from various sources. Some as you guessed from recyclers but some straight off the road.

I do wonder how much dirt there might be in it.

I haven't got a clue what they do in recycling yards exactly but was told they have to go to recycling yards to be washed of all contamination and that is why you arnt supposed to have them straight of the job
But tbh when i was in day aggregates the other day they just seemed to be feeding the plannings back into the plant

Always find plainings from roads that are made up from spray tar and chip dressing has the most tack to it stuff from motorways and duel carriage ways is drier plainings so don't stick together well

Sure you're not getting the sweepings from the tar and chip resurfacing that councils do these days?

Synthapruf was rubberoid based the last time I used it Mart ---- some time ago though
HTF could they make it water based, when it's a water-proofer / water barrier ???
