Telfer Pavement Technologies (TPT) and Ergon Asphalt and Emulsions (EAE) brought ePrime to Yosemite National Park and the contractor and the park representatives were impressed.
What is ePrime you ask?
ePrime is a quick curing, environmentally friendly prime coat developed by EAE that protects your base from moisture during the construction phase, and bonds the paving to the base creating improved structure. Unlike ordinary prime coats ePrime is solvent-free (no VOC’s) thereby making it safe to apply in virtually any environment. One of the best features of ePrime is the ability for same day paving following the application, typically within two to three hours.

eFlex slurry and micro surfacing is a new and innovative emulsion that creates a tougher slurry and or micro surfacing finish. This new surface resists snowplow and tire rub damage better than older more conventional systems. eFlex has been used in high elevations, high snow fall climates as well as desert and high temperature climates. In this video you can see and get a feel for eFlex as Telfer applies it for a homeowner’s association.
The City of Berkeley needed a solution for their asphalt preservation woes. With many existing residential and arterial roads exhibiting aged oxidation, raveling, cracking, and other non structural related distresses they needed a solution that would eliminate these issues and provide a long lasting driving surface for residents without disrupting the community. Enter Telfer Pavement Technologies (TPT) and their brand new state of the art asphalt rubber blending facility, transports and distributor trucks. In 2016 TPT applied 83,000 SY of AR Cape Seal and an additional 52,000 SY of Slurry on slightly better condition streets. This project ended up netting the City of Berkeley and TPT an award from the Western Regional Association for Pavement Preservation. Click here for more information on Chip and Cape Seals.
