Tac Coat is the application of an asphalt binder (bitumen emulsion) between layers of asphalt pavement to create a bonded pavement unit. Tack coat glues the overlay to the bottom layer preventing that from sliding and delamination. This material prevents the pavement from structural distress, such as fatigue cracks, and reduces rutting and shoving. Tack coat not only increases the shear strength of the overlayed pavement but also reduces the amount of deflection in the pavement compared to when it’s not utilized. Moreover, tack coat helps the construction process of laying the new asphalt on the old pavement and compacting.
