How to Calculate the Spread Rate in Asphalt Paving | Sciencing
Correctly calculating the amount of material that is required to complete the project is essential to a successful asphalt paving assignment. On a paving project, asphalt paving material brought to the project site is measured in tons.

Tack Coat Application Rate - Tip Top Tack Coat.com
Diluted emulsions should be applied at a greater rate than undiluted emulsions to obtain the same residual asphalt coverage. Residual asphalt is the asphalt binder left over after the emulsion has set. As you can see, the application rate is doubled in the chart above so the same final residual results from the application.

Applications for asphalt emulsions | Asphalt magazine
Dust palliatives are diluted asphalt emulsions that reduce dust on unpaved roads. Most dust palliatives are sprayed by an asphalt distributor onto low volume unpaved roads. Application rates vary from 0.1 to 0.35 gallons per square yard. Benefits from dust palliatives include: Reduction of maintenance grading costs; Reduction of gravel loss
Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) Selection Guidance - December 2017
These guidelines provide for the selection of Hot Mixed Asphalt (HMA) and application rates utilizing the Superpave mix design system along with the Marshall Mix design system. The substitution of another HMA mixture type other than the recommended mixture is acceptable if it has demonstrated to perform under similar traffic conditions.
Application Rates and Weights for Estimating Purposes
specific gravity of 1.3 : Requires 2 applications * If the project uses the FP-03 calculate quantity based on area and use this value in your estimate because the FP-03 pays for the water to dilute.
Surface King Tack & Prime Coat Applications With Asphalt ...
Slow-setting grades of asphalt emulsions (diluted with water before application) are suitable type of emulsion is most suitable prime. With dense granular bases, or stabilized bases the surface may need to be broken up by scarifying before application, to ensure good penetration. A prime coat performs several important functions.

Dilution rates are critical in determining final application rates. Temperature is important in determining accurate volumetric calculated rates. Higher than 60 °F, need to spray more emulsion. Lower than 60°F, need to spray less emulsion. Uniform application spreads in distributing tack on the surface of the road.
