Telfer Pavements hosted a Pavement Preservation Workshop in the Bay Area this July. This particular workshop consisted of a brief discussion on the process of Bonded Wearing Course(BWC) at the Alameda County Public Works building. Followed by a live demonstration of a BWC job on 98th street in the City of Oakland. This workshop was aimed at allowing project managers and engineers the opportunity to see the many benefits of BWC and pavement preservation in general. Telfer thanks all that attended, and remember we are here to help!
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 most touted features of ePrime is the ability for same day paving following the application, typically within two to three hours. With a one step application process leaving you with a prepared base and unparalleled adhesion for future layers.

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.

The WRAPP Award of Excellence was created by concerned contractors in the Pavement Preservation business to highlight and recognize those pavement preservation projects and contractors that exemplify quality, safety and customer satisfaction. The awarded projects and The Recipients of the award are highlighted at WRAPP Annual Work Shop. This year’s Annual Work Shop was held January at the Double Tree in Ontario California. TPT and the City of Berkeley Accepted an Award of Excellence for 2016 for an Asphalt Rubber and Slurry seal project which was completed last year. There were a few unique aspects to the project. Telfer was required to attended Berkeley’s Building & Construction Trade Career and Trade Fair. Where we hired Local Union and Non-Union native residents of Berkeley for this project. Berkeley also has many low hanging trees which had to be taken into consideration and worked around. Scheduling with our wide variety of subs was a challenge but was coordinated well, The City of Berkeley was very helpful with this. The result of our combined efforts was a great finished product with low impact to residents. This was a great project for both the City of Berkeley and Telfer Pavement Technologies.
