Asphalt Institute Academy
ISSA Innovation Through Preservation


Price: $FREE


In 2010 the International Slurry Surfacing Association and the National Center for Pavement Preservation joined forces to update the ISSA Inspectors Manual. This updated document serves as a valuable asset to agencies, consultants and inspectors who utilize Slurry Seals & Microsurfacing on pavements and are responsible for their inspection and acceptance. The 120-page publication covers materials, mix design, equipment calibration in the field, sampling at the site, inspection responsibilities & procedures, safety, surface preparation, stockpiling procedures, problems that may occur, their potential causes, solutions to those problems, and other suggestions. Referred to as MA-1 ISSA Inspector’s Manual, this publication can be ordered at

This webinar will cover the highlights of the new Inspector’s Manual by guiding participants through all phases of Slurry Seal & Microsurfacing construction & inspection. Emphasis will be on illustrating the step by step procedures necessary for proper installation & oversight of projects. While not necessary to have the MA1 ISSA Inspector’s Manual during this webinar to follow the presentation and benefit greatly from the information discussed, it is highly encouraged to do so either before or after the webinar in order to have a quality reference manual.
